Mission Statement

The Huntington Theatre Company engages, inspires, entertains and challenges audiences with theatrical productions that range from the classics to new works; we train and support the next generation of theatre artists; we provide arts education programs that promote life-long learning to a diverse community; and we celebrate the essential power of the theatre to illuminate our common humanity. Founded by Boston University in 1982, and separately incorporated in 1986, the Huntington's relationship with Boston University remains our primary strategic and programmatic partnership.


The Huntington is renowned for creating seven world-class productions each season for an audience of over 130,000. It brings the country's finest theatre artists to Boston, including Phylicia Rashad, Kate Burton, Nathan Lane, John C. Reilly, Victor Garber, Andrea Martin and Campbell Scott, to work with Boston's finest artists. With partner Boston University, the company has nurtured future stars such as Julianne Moore and Michael Chiklis. The Huntington has premiered plays by Pulitzer Prize, Academy Award, and Tony Award-winning luminaries such as August Wilson and Tom Stoppard, as well as rising local literary stars such as Melinda Lopez and Ronan Noone. The company stages its productions in two world-class venues: the historic, Broadway-style, 890-seat Boston University Theatre on Huntington Avenue, and the state-of-the-art Stanford Calderwood Pavilion at the Boston Center for the Arts, built and operated by the Huntington since 2004, houses the 370-seat Virginia Wimberly Theatre and the 200-seat Nancy and Edward Roberts Studio. The Roberts Studio and the Pavilion's other spaces serve as homes for many of Boston's smaller theatre companies, expanding the Huntington's local leadership role to supporting many of Boston's emerging and midsized theatre companies.
