The Huntington Theatre Company is Boston’s leading professional theatre and one of the region’s premier cultural assets since its founding in 1982. Recipient of the 2013 Regional Theatre Tony Award, the Huntington brings together superb local and national talent and produces a mix of groundbreaking new works and classics made current to create award-winning productions.

The Huntington runs nationally renowned programs in education and new play development and serves the local theatre community through its operation of the Calderwood Pavilion at the BCA. A leader in the development of new plays, the Huntington has produced more than 100 New England, American, or world premiere to date. It supports local writers through its new playwright-in-residency and the Huntington Playwriting Fellows program, the cornerstones of its new work activities. Through a diverse and impacting range of nationally renowned education and community programs, the Huntington serves 33,000 young people and underserved audiences each year.

The Huntington has long been an anchor cultural institution of Huntington Avenue, the Avenue of the Arts, and will remain so on a permanent basis with plans to convert the Huntington Avenue Theatre into a first-rate, modern venue with expanded services to audiences, artists, and the community.

The Huntington opened the Stanford Calderwood Pavilion at the Boston Center for the Arts in 2004 as a home for its new works activities and to provide a much-needed resource for the local theatre community. The Huntington is a catalyst for the growth of Boston's emerging performing arts organizations by providing first-class facilities at the Calderwood Pavilion and audience services at significantly subsidized rates to dozens of them each year.

Under the direction of Artistic Director Peter DuBois and Managing Director Michael Maso, the Huntington cultivates, celebrates, and champions theatre as an art form. The Huntington's two prior artistic leaders were Peter Altman (1982-2000) and Nicholas Martin (2000-2008).
