City Approval Marks Milestone for Harvard's A.R.T.

What's New

We are excited that Harvard's American Repertory Theater (A.R.T.) has received city approval for its new home in Allston.

Harvard is delighted to move ahead with creating a new home for the A.R.T. in Allston. This center for creativity and performance will enable the A.R.T. to expand its remarkable and dynamic work and will add to the creative energy already developing within the Harvard Innovation Labs, Harvard Business School, the Science Engineering Complex, and the emerging Enterprise Research Campus, all within the existing robust arts scene in Allston.

ARC, Haworth Tompkins, and Charcoalblue have collaboratively worked on the programming and design of this exciting project for A.R.T. The new home is expected to serve as a dynamic space for theatrical performances, creative collaborations, and public events, significantly contributing to the vibrancy of both the university and the surrounding community.


A.R.T. expects to break ground in 2024 and commence productions in the new facility in late fall 2026.
