Campaign for The New Huntington
A STORIED VENUE WITH A BOLD VISION
The transformational Campaign for the New Huntington, a comprehensive fundraising initiative to reimagine The Huntington Theatre and strongly enhance our future sustainability, has successfully raised over $109 million over the past six years. The major components of the Campaign include:
- The Revitalization of our historic theatre, which reopened with great celebration in the fall of 2022;
- Expansion into 14,000 square feet of new space to create our East Wing;
- Capacity building and growing our endowment.
The East Wing, projected to open early 2027, will incorporate a new soaring, modern venue alongside our historic theatre, on the first two floors of the Toll Brothers residential tower currently under construction next door. A welcoming beacon on Huntington Avenue, this new space will provide fully accessible dynamic cultural and convening spaces visible from the street. The East Wing will feature expansive lobbies, a box office, patron amenities and services, and will add flexible performance spaces, a bar/lounge/cafe, and an outdoor balcony overlooking Huntington Avenue. Artistic Director Loretta Greco is bringing her innovative concepts and vision to the design process with architects Bruner/ Cott, who so skillfully led the Huntington Theatre renovation.
Our goal is for the East Wing to be open daily, year-round, to present new and exciting artistic collaborations and diverse cultural programming, offer food and drink in a convivial atmosphere, allow us to better serve audiences of all abilities, and increase the breadth and scope of our education programs and community engagement.
The Campaign is led by trustee Ann Merrifield and has benefited from enthusiastic board support. We are deeply grateful to the over 300 generous donors who have participated in the Campaign for the New Huntington thus far, ensuring remarkable progress toward our comprehensive goal.
Our theatre is a vital part of Boston’s cultural ecosystem and we invite you to be part of our bold vision as we shape our future on the Avenue of the Arts and firmly anchor The Huntington as a public good at this cultural crossroads.
