About Us


Recipient of the 2013 Regional Theatre Tony Award and Boston magazine's 2013 Best of Boston award, the Huntington Theatre Company is Boston's leading professional theatre and one of the region's premiere cultural assets. Under the direction of Artistic Director Peter DuBois and Managing Director Michael Maso, and in residence at Boston University, the Huntington cultivates, celebrates, and champions theatre as an art form.

The Huntington was founded in 1982 by Boston University due to the vision and leadership of President John Silber and Vice President Gerald Gross and was separately incorporated as an independent non-profit in 1986. In 2004, the Huntington opened the Stanford Calderwood Pavilion at the Boston Center for the Arts as a home for its new works activities and to provide a much-needed resource for the local theatre community. In the past 31 years, the Huntington has played to an audience of 3.5 million, presented over 192 plays (16 of which went to Broadway or Off Broadway), and served over 450,000 students with its nationally renowned education and community programs.
