Boston’s Shubert Theatre has a storied history. The theatre opened in 1910 as a venue for Shakespearean works, opening with a performance of Taming of the Shrew. Over time, the theatre became a place for musicals, especially those headed to Broadway. Following a $3,000,000 renovation in 1996, it reopened with Rent. Improvements made during the renovation included a new stage, a larger orchestra pit, new mechanical and electrical upgrades and increased accessibility for all patrons. In 1998, the theatre became home to the Boston Lyric Opera, following a donation by the Wang Theatre, the sister theater to the Shubert. The theater was formerly named the Citi Performing Arts Center - Shubert Theatre, but in November of 2016 it was renamed the Boch Center - Shubert Theatre, following the purchase of naming rights by the Boch family. Previous performances include Les Miserables, Death of a Salesman, Jersey Boys, Dreamgirls and South Pacific. In the past, the theatre hosted stars including Ingrid Bergman, Mae West, Humphrey Bogart and many more. Once you’ve reserved a ticket, you’ll want to find a place to park.
