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  Many performances considered the theatre to have a grand stage that was too shallow and outdated and insufficient production facilities.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.  

Wang Theatre in Boston, MA

The Wang Theatre remains one of the most popular and historically significant theatres throughout the Boston area. The theatre is nestled in a 1925 historic building that was previously known as the Metropolitan Theatre/Metropolitan Center but was later renamed the Music Hall. Situated on the 252 – 257 Tremont Street of the Theatre District, the design work of the theatre was done by Clarence Blackall. The business operations of the theatre are done as part of Boch Center which was previously the Citi Performing Arts Center. In the year 1990, the Boston Landmarks Commission designated the theatre a Boston Landmark status. History

Originally opened in 1925 as the Metropolitan Theatre, the Wang Theatre was another brilliant design work of the renowned architect, Clarence Blackall in collaboration with C. Howard Crane, a theatre architect from Detroit. In the year 1962, the Metropolitan Center was turned into a home of the Boston Ballet which led to its getting renamed the Music Hall. Throughout the 1960s and the 1970s, audiences were treated to a number of different shows that included Bolshoi Ballet, Kirov Ballet, Metropolitan Opera as well as Stuttgart Opera among several other popular performing artists and movies.

In as much as the Music Hall was an exciting theatre, with time, it lots its ability to interest larger touring companies especially due to the size of the stage and the production facilities that were rather outdated. Profits were running low and in 1980, the theatre was converted to a non-profit center after which it was renamed the Metropolitan Center. This revitalized the theatre and made it attractive to theatrical performances once again.

Renovations

Wang Theatre was however created later on in 1983 when Dr. An Wang made a sizeable donation to the theatre. Between 1989 and 1992, approximately $9.8 million was raised with an aim of restoring the theatre to its former glory. Finegold Alexander + Associates Inc., an architecture firm based in Boston embarked on the restoration of the theatre and renovating the various elements that needed improvement. The entire renovation process was a success and in just a short while, most of the theatre had been renovated to perfect condition.

Conrad Schmidt Studios worked on decorating the theatre, providing the gilded moldings, marbleized surfaces, scagliola as well as the murals. The Citi Performing Arts Center, in 2008, announced for the Wang Theatre a co-booking arrangement with The Madison Square Garden Company. Since its renovation it has been used for various shows that include the movie American Hustle, casino scenes, live band performances, The Witches of Eastwick and for a number of scenes of Gilded Lilys.

Boch Center – Boston Theatre District

The Boch Center and Wang Theatre are smack in the middle of a resurgence in the Boston downtown area and specifically the Theatre District.  The area is very well connected by T stops on the Green Line and Orange Line via multiple Green Line stops and Orange Line stops at Tufts Medical, Chinatown, and Downtown Crossing.  All of these are within very quick walking distance to the Boch Center. 

There is also a brand new hotel and luxury condo high rise called The W by Marriott.  Given the success of that property other skyscrapers are under construction already in the immediate area.  The area is very lively and becoming a lot more walker friendly.  Things indeed are looking very bright for the Wang Theatre in Boston.

All of this activity is self-reinforcing and helping to bring in more performances to the Wang Theatre and Boch Center.  Stay tuned for more updates.
