Events at Colonial Theatre
The Colonial Theatre, which seats approximately 1,700, is one of four venues operated by Broadway in Boston, which also produces shows at the Wilbur Theatre, The Opera House and the Charles Playhouse. Opened on December 20, 1900, the Colonial’s first performance was Ben Hur, which featured a cast of 350 including a real chariot race with 12 horses on stage. Since then the theater has developed into one of Boston’s premier performance venues and in the ’90s underwent a major restoration that brought back much of the theater’s original splendor while adding modern amenities.
