The Emerson Black Box Theater
The Emerson Black Box Theater is a flexible space designed to put the audience close to the action. While the size of the audience can be adjusted to suit the productions requirements, one thing that never changes is the intimate relationship between the audience and the performers. The Emerson Black Box Theater can be configured for theater in the round, as a traditional theater, or anything in between.
Generally seating between 150 and 250 audience members, The Emerson Black Box Theater provides for more intimate gatherings in music, dance, drama and experimental theater. Located at the west end of our main stage lobby, The Emerson Black Box Theater is just steps from The Boyle Art Gallery, and The Bezemes Family Theater.
