In October, Boston University announced it was selling its Huntington Avenue properties, which may leave the Huntington Theatre Company without a mainstage home after 33 years on the Avenue of the Arts.
On Sunday January 17, The Boston Globe reported that an investment group has emerged as a front-runner to buy the company’s Huntington Avenue theater. The Boston Globe indicates that the administration of Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, officials from Boston University, representatives of the Huntington Theatre Company, and an investment group led by Boston-area developer John Matteson, are actively engaged in finding a solution to keep the Huntington Theatre Company in its home on Huntington Avenue.
Although the potential loss of the Huntington Theatre Company’s longtime artistic home is not the only issue facing the broader arts community, it is arguably the most important in its potential to negatively impact the cultural landscape of Boston and Massachusetts.
The Tony Award-winning Huntington Theatre Company is a cornerstone of Boston’s theatre community. The Huntington helps drive the local economy, enhances education for youth in Boston and across the Commonwealth, and helps build a vibrant, thriving community on the Avenue of the Arts and in the South End.
Without a place on Huntington Avenue, the Huntington Theatre Company not only loses its home, but Boston loses a jewel on the Avenue of the Arts.
