The Wang Theatre captures more than 85 years of history of Boston’s deep and enriching arts and culture scene.  The theatre continues to stand as a vital part of Boston’s historic Theatre District.

The Wang Theatre opened in Boston in 1925 as The Metropolitan Theatre.  Clarence Blackall designed the theatre.  Max Shoolman developed The Metropolitan Theatre.  Blackall also designed 12 other theatres in Boston to include the Wilbur Theatre and the Copley Plaza Hotel.  It didn’t take long for the theatre to earn the affectionate nickname of “The Met”.  “The Met” is widely considered the most important Boston historical landmark capturing the essence of the Roaring Twenties.

In 1962 the theatre was renamed to The Music Hall.  It was home to the newly formed at the time Boston Ballet.  During this period The Music Hall did enjoy periods of success, but ultimately it fell behind the times.  Many performances considered the theatre to have a grand stage that was too shallow and outdated and insufficient production facilities.  Many touring companies bypassed Boston and The Music Hall. 

In 1980 the theatre converted to a nonprofit operation and welcomed much needed renovations to the stage and infrastructure.  Dr. An Wang, the founder of Wang laboratories, unleashed the era of the Wang Center for the Performing Arts.  Dr. Wang’s energetic embrace of the theatre sparked a resurgence of interested and the nearly $10 Million in funds raised helped the theatre return to its vibrant days of the 1920’s. 

Since the massive restoration and injection of spirit and excitement, the Wang Center for the Performing Arts has hosted a wide range of highly successful theatre, music, dance, and film performances.  The theatre smashed box office records with Les Miserable and The Phantom of the Opera.  Musicians and performers such as Harry Connick Jr., Whitney Houston, and Lady Gaga have conducted highly successful performances at the theatre.  During this time the Wang Theatre also executed its hit series highlighting Classic Films.

Success and expansion lead to the theatre taking over the operations and productions of the Shubert Theatre.  In 2006 the theatre entered into a long term partnership with Citigroup.  In September of 2016 the theatre entered into a long term naming rights agreement with the Boch family.  The Boch Center is the new and current official name and the theatre continues to control and operate both the Wang property and the Shubert Theatre.
