Colonial Theatre

106 Boylston Street, Boston, MA, USA
Seats (approximate): 1705

Built in 1900 on the site of the former Boston Public Library, The Colonial Theatre has hosted some of the finest Broadway productions ever staged, and Boston theatre audiences have shared in that unique theatrical history. What was said of The Colonial Theatre in 1900 still holds true today. "It is a palace dedicated to the play, a monument to the taste of New England, and a credit to the City of Boston."
