About The Boch Center
We are a nonprofit innovator and guardian of iconic venues, providing relevant and inclusive performing arts entertainment and cultural educational experiences for the most diverse audiences possible.
Vision, Values and Background
The Boch Center has ignited a greater appreciation for creativity as an essential component to our society for generations and is home to Boston’s iconic Wang and Shubert Theatres, which have anchored the historic Theater District for 100 years. We believe it is a right, not a privilege, for all individuals to access the arts regardless of background or means. We believe the arts heal, transform lives, and create opportunities for expression, dialogue, and shared cultural experiences. We believe the arts keep us a civilized society, and accessibility, diversity, equity, inclusion, and civic engagement are among our highest priorities. Our staff and Board leadership reflect the communities we serve because we believe diverse perspectives fuel compassion and innovation and help us see beyond our past experiences and toward the future ahead of us.
We welcome all to enjoy a diverse roster of performances. Our innovative programming includes classical and popular music, dance, spoken word, musicals, theater, multimedia, comedy, and family programs. Partnering with local, national, and international producers, we offer 200+ performances for 400,000+ audiences each year. A wide array of artists from diverse cultural backgrounds perform on our landmark stages – from internationally renowned legends to emerging artists and local ensembles.
