My favorite moment was taking a class to “The Colored Museum.” The conversation it sparked was amazing, and for many students, this was their first time in a theater. The Huntington is convenient to the Green and Orange lines, as well as bus lines, and near and easily accessible to many colleges and local public schools, making it genuinely accessible to all audiences.

Hi Paul Would we have any prominent alumni from local colleges or theatre groups who might aid in this endeavor – i.e. recognizable names to lend to requests for assistance in this area to re-establish Greater Boston as not only a hub for sports activities but for the arts as well. Tonight I head to PPAC for Cabaret – I wonder who is the push behind the revitalization of PPAC – support from city, state or patrons of the arts?

Marybeth,
We have to start building audiences. Boston seems to be a sports town so this is an uphill battle. I used to work for the Cleveland Playhouse as a scene tech. I just came back from celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Playhouse. All of us (still living) who were alums showed up and we were treated like royalty. Just after that, Cleveland voters passed a bill to increase funding for theater arts. That’s what we need. Some funds from the city or commonwealth (I now live in Cambridge, MA) driven by a public that really cares about the performing arts.

Yes Paul when you look at other major cities which supposedly support the arts and theatre you find our Greater Boston area to be in deficit – how can we change this? Is it the cost of the venues? or is it a lack of enthusiasm from our general population? This is a major issue which needs to be addressed. Thank you Paul.

I came to Boston from Cleveland in 1970 to study scene design at BU. It is madness to lose that theater. There is so little quality theater here anyway. In Cleveland there are 9 theaters in Playhouse Square. Most were revived from old Vaudeville houses that became huge movie theaters. The arts community and regular citizens made all of them legitimate theaters. In addition there are smaller theaters scattered around the city. While the theater scene is so poor in Boston, why would you give up one of the few large theaters here that consistently puts on very good productions?

The Huntington has been the one place in Boston where we could be sure of seeing fine drama, consistently well-staged. Let’s keep it where it is!

Our favorite experience at the Huntington was just a week or so ago. We saw the timely and thought-provoking wonderful play Disgraced. Before the show we unbelievably got a parking spot right in front of the theatre, and then had a great meal at a hole-in-the-wall Ethiopian restaurant around the corner. How’s that for a perfect evening? And we discussed the play the whole drive home.

I have many fond memories of having seen plays at this lovely, intimate theatre. It has inspired a deep and broad appreciation of the arts and has nurtured theatrical talent (and related arts) for decades. Would it qualify
as a national/local registered historical venue? These should be some protection for this lovely venue and all that it has and could enable.

I love having reasonably priced good local theater . The Huntington theater produces shows that are well performed and relevant to timely socioeconomic issues and brings thought and interpretation of real life to the stage. On approaching an empty nest we became subscribers the day after our youngest clicked her college acceptance and have enjoyed the Huntington ever since. It gives us a fun engaging reason to come into Boston regularly for dinner and a show.
