Earlier this month Boston Magazine had an encouraging article for Boston Theater lovers. To quote the article, “Soon, Emerson’s Colonial Theatre will be dark no longer.

London’s Ambassador Theatre Group (ATG), which oversees theaters around the world, has partnered with Emerson College and has plans to begin hosting productions in 2018. ATG will work with Emerson to also incorporate student programming and youth programs and they told The Boston Globe they envision the possibility of running Broadway tryouts of shows at The Colonial much like it did in the past. However, first the theater will first be refurbished.

All of this is probably music to the ears of theater organizations, that have been clamoring for more space. For established theater companies like the Boston Lyric Opera, which lost their home at the Shubert last year this could be very significant. Recognizing the need, ATG’s Chief Executive told The Boston Globe, “We are going to make every effort that we possibly can to support the Boston Lyric Opera’s search for a new home.
