The Huntington Theatre Company is Boston’s leading professional theatre and one of the region’s premier cultural assets. Since its founding in 1982, the Huntington has received over 150 Elliot Norton and Independent Reviewers of New England Awards, as well as the Tony Award for Outstanding Regional Theatre. In the past 36 years, the Huntington has played to an audience of 3.5 million, presented over 200 plays (18 of which went on to Broadway or Off Broadway), and served over 500,000 students, community members, and other cultural organizations.
A longstanding anchor cultural institution of Huntington Avenue, the Avenue of the Arts, the Huntington now fully owns the Huntington Avenue Theatre and plans to renovate the historic venue, adding first-rate, modern amenities including a new entrance and expansive lobby, as well as expanding services to audiences, artists, and the community.
The Huntington serves 200,000 audience members each year at the Huntington Avenue Theatre and the Calderwood Pavilion at the BCA. Through a diverse and impactful range of nationally-renowned education and community programs, the Huntington engages 36,000 young people and adults in underserved neighborhoods each year. These programs include the Poetry Out Loud National Recitation Contest, the August Wilson Monologue Competition, the Huntington Community Membership Initiative, a youth playwriting program called EPIC, and the Student Matinee Series.
The Huntington cultivates, celebrates, and champions theatre as an art form and is committed to mentoring local playwrights, educating young people in theatre, and serving as a catalyst for the growth of dozens of Boston’s emerging performing arts organizations.
