Home to the School of Theatre’s main stage, the Stewart F. Lane and Bonnie Comley Studio 210, the Design & Production Center offices, and the Huntington Theatre Company. The building today known as the Boston University Theatre, and constructed in 1923, was designed as America’s first civic playhouse. Designed by J. Williams Beal & Sons and originally named the Repertory Theatre of Boston, the theatre was built to be a permanent home for the Henry Jewett Players, a Boston-based repertory theatre company. In October 1953, Boston University purchased the facility, and the vision with which the founders had initially created the theatre again began to be realized. The School of Theatre has now used the theatre as its primary facility for performance, design, and technical production for three decades.

In 2005, the School of Theatre began producing two shows annually in the Huntington Theatre Company’s new Virginia Wimberly Theatre, housed at the Calderwood Pavilion at the Boston Center for the Arts. Located in the heart of Boston’s South End neighborhood, the Calderwood Pavilion serves as both a theatre hub and a cultural landmark for the City of Boston. It provides a home for artistic collaborations, fosters the development of new plays, creates more opportunities for youth and community outreach, and expands the existing BCA complex to include more performance venues for Boston’s smaller arts organizations.
