Emerson Colonial Theatre

Emerson Colonial Theatre


Emerson Colonial Theatre, which opened in 1900 with a production of Ben-Hur, is the oldest continuously operated theater in Boston; as well as being amongst the most magnificent, having retained most of its original period details. In its storied history, The Emerson Colonial Theatre has debuted such seminal Broadway shows as Anything Goes, Porgy and Bess, Oklahoma!, Born Yesterday, Follies, A Little Night Music, Grand Hotel, and La Cage aux Folles, among others. Reviving a great theatrical tradition, Boston’s newly restored Emerson Colonial Theatre officially re-opened its doors in July 2018 with the pre-Broadway World Premiere of Moulin Rouge! The Musical. Currently the Colonial’s programming remains true to its roots of Pre-Broadway try-outs (just this past year included both David Byrne’s American Utopia and Plaza Suite starring Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick) combined with one-night events of concerts, comedy and family programming

Seating capacity: 1634
