Calderwood Pavilion at the BCA

Stages at the Calderwood Pavilion at the BCA

In fall 2000‚ the Huntington and the Boston Center for the Arts (BCA) entered into a partnership to build‚ manage‚ and program two new theatres in the South End, the first new theatres built in Boston in more than 75 years. It provides a home for artistic collaborations; fosters the development of new plays; helps build and diversify audiences; creates more opportunities for youth and community outreach; and expands the existing BCA complex to include more performance venues for Boston's smaller arts organizations.

The Calderwood Pavilion houses four performance spaces: the 370–seat Virginia Wimberly Theatre and the 200–seat Nancy and Edward Roberts Studio Theatre, as well as two 50-seat rehearsal halls/performance spaces: Carol G. Deane Hall and Nicholas Martin Hall.
