About Calderwood Pavilion at the BCA
In October 2004‚ the Huntington expanded its operations to include the new Stanford Calderwood Pavilion at the Boston Center for the Arts. In fall 2000‚ the Huntington and the Boston Center for the Arts (BCA) entered into a partnership to build‚ manage‚ and program two new theatres in the South End, the first new theatres built in Boston in more than 75 years. The Calderwood Pavilion, housing the 370–seat Virginia Wimberly Theatre and the 200–seat Nancy and Edward Roberts Studio Theatre, is managed by the Huntington and programmed jointly with the BCA. In addition to providing a second stage for the Huntington‚ the new theatres also host a range of performances by smaller arts organizations. The Calderwood Pavilion serves as a theatre hub and a cultural landmark for the City of Boston. It provides a home for artistic collaborations; fosters the development of new plays; helps build and diversify audiences; creates more opportunities for youth and community outreach; and expands the existing BCA complex to include more performance venues for Boston's smaller arts organizations.
