ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage

ArtsEmerson: The World on Stage is committed to bringing the world’s legendary and pioneering artists to Emerson College, presenting work from this country and abroad you’ve never had an opportunity to see—at least, not without first heading to the airport.

Based in the heart of Boston’s historic Theatre District—on the Emerson College campus—ArtsEmerson programs include culturally enriching theatre, film, and music. To further engage the Emerson College community, 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 opportunities for students, faculty, and the community to engage in the creative process.

  • the state-of-the-art 170-seat Bright Family Screening Room (located within the Paramount Center)
