Lyric Stage Company of Boston
140 Clarendon Street
Boston, MA 02116
Founded in 1974, the non-profit Lyric Stage is Boston’s oldest resident theatre company. Its mission is to produce and present live theatre in Greater Boston with an intimate approach that promotes inclusivity and connection. The Lyric Stage leads an effort to integrate live theater and theater education into the lives of all residents of greater Boston.
Prior to the pandemic, over 100,000 people annually attended Lyric Stage shows or participated in its education programs at the Boston Childrens’ Museum and multiple Boston Public Schools. During its history, the Lyric Stage has won multiple awards, co-produced the first full production of the Front Porch Arts Collective, established Fresh Ink Theatre as its new play development partner, and won praise for its inclusive casting.
During the pandemic, the Lyric Stage has maintained its service to the City of Boston by commissioning work from seven playwrights, including six for the Walking Plays, a series of audio plays set in public outdoor spaces in Boston; launching Lyric First Page, a youth playwriting festival; and regular installments of Lyric To-Go, which connects audiences with artists.
