Calderwood Pavilion at the BCA
The Huntington Theatre Company built and operates the Stanford Calderwood Pavilion at the Boston Center for the Arts, located at 527 Tremont Street in Boston's Historic South End, which provides first-class facilities and audience services at subsidized rates to dozens of Boston’s most exciting small and mid-sized theatre companies. The rents and fees these companies can pay amount to only half of the $800,000 it takes to run the Calderwood Pavilion each year, and so the Huntington relies on annual fund donors to make up the difference and keep this vital facility in operation.
Named #3 on Boston.com’s “Biggest Arts Stories of the Decade,” (December 22, 2009) the Calderwood Pavilion opened in 2004 and was the first new theatre built in Boston since the 1920s. Housing the 370-seat Virginia Wimberly Theatre (the Huntington’s second stage, where you will see Circle Mirror Transformation and Sons of the Prophet this season), the 200-seat Nancy and Edward Roberts Studio Theatre, the Carol Deane Rehearsal Hall, and Hall A, the facility has helped to reinvigorate the Boston Center for the Arts’ campus and helped turn the South End into “a new cultural hub” for the arts. Over the past 5 years, the Calderwood Pavilion has hosted:
In addition to the Calderwood Pavilion, the Huntington also operates BostonTheatreScene.com, a ticketing service for companies performing in the Calderwood Pavilion, the Boston Center for the Arts Theatres on the Plaza, and the Boston University Theatre.
