The AIA New England recognized the Boston University Joan & Edgar Booth Theatre and College of Fine Arts Production Center with an Honor Award during their virtual awards ceremony on September 25, 2020. With an eye-catching façade designed to evoke a theatre proscenium, this 75,000-sf facility unifies the College of Fine Arts School of Theatre and supports all aspects of theatre production and performance arts.
The project is funded in part by a naming gift of $10 million from BU trustee Steve Zide (LAW’86). The theatre is named after Steve’s theatre-loving wife, Janet Zide’s parents, Joan and Edgar Booth. Edgar Booth passed away recently, but Zide’s mother-in-law, Joan Booth, remains an active patron of the arts and a Broadway aficionado.
