Our 2021/22 Season

We are thrilled to open our doors on September 24 for our 2021/22 season! Your support has kept us strong over the past year, and you have our heartfelt thanks. The 47th season explores meaningful relationships and asks us how far we would go for the people and things we hold dear. We’re excited to share these powerful, exciting, and moving lineup of plays and musicals with our audiences. 

We know that this year will be quite unlike any other. Throughout the pandemic, we have kept close watch on the guidance from the CDC, Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and the City of Boston to keep our artists and audiences safe. If you have specific questions, don’t be afraid to send us an email. We always enjoy hearing from you.
