Architectural Detail from Paramount Theatre

ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage showcases first-class performances from all over the world, providing new opportunities for the Boston community to experience culturally enriching theatre, film, and music. Our home is in the heart of Boston’s historic theatre district. The facilities include:

  • The newly opened Paramount Center with its three performance venues: the remarkably reconfigured Paramount Mainstage, the Jackie Liebergott Black Box ("The Jackie") and the state-of-the-art Bright Family Screening Room
  • The magnificently restored Cutler Majestic Theatre

ArtsEmerson is committed to bringing many of the world’s legendary and pioneering artists to Boston, presenting work from this country and abroad you’ve never had an opportunity to see—at least, not without first heading to the airport.

We’ve grouped these artists into two programming streams:


Established, highly regarded institutions and artists whose work is seen and celebrated around the world—and now in Boston.


A new generation of acclaimed artists whose ideas are redefining the theatre and pointing to the future.

In addition, within these two programming streams we will include a series of works that engage the imaginations of the whole family—young and old alike.

Much of the work of ArtsEmerson will evolve out of periodic, multi-year residencies designed to facilitate the creation of new work and to provide a glimpse into the creative process for the benefit of students, faculty, ArtsEmerson Members and the greater Boston community. We hope you’ll join us for this adventure by becoming a Member of ArtsEmerson.
