Art House

ART HOUSE • April 27 – May 6, 2023 • Joan & Edgar Booth Theatre •

A true collaboration brings an entertaining evening of laughter as well as a behind-the-scenes look at the making of an original live-action TV comedy pilot.

Art House , a co-production of BU College of Fine Arts School of Theatre and BU College of Communication Department of Film & Television, introduces the audience to a young woman who returns home after a bad breakup and discovers her brother has turned their Boston family home into a workplace for struggling artists. Be a part of the live studio audience as this original multi-camera sitcom is performed and filmed each night at Booth Theatre.

Watch the episode – written by students from Film and TV and Playwriting students – unfold as we film the action, reshoot as needed, and run through scenes. All filming, editing, cinematography and directing will be helmed by Film & Television students, with acting, design, production, and management provided by Theatre students.

This exciting, first-of-its-kind experience bridges programs from across the University, as students make history together. The pilot is set to premiere in late 2023.
