The oldest continually operating theatre in Boston, The Emerson Colonial first opened in 1900 with a spectacular production of Ben Hur, which required a cast and crew of 350 people. Due to its size, it continues to this day to host big scale touring shows which struggle to find venues large enough in other cities.
