The Studio Theatre
The Studio Theatre is the Theatre Department’s primary classroom and performance space. At just under 50 seats, the Studio provides students with an intimate laboratory space to explore all aspects of theatre. The program’s emphasis on student-generated work offers several opportunities throughout the year to get involved.
The C. Walsh Theatre
The Theatre Department manages the C. Walsh Theatre, Suffolk University’s premiere performance space. Renovated in 2006-2007, the 399-seat theatre welcomes visitors with a warm, modern design that recalls the essence of the original space and reflects the youthful energy of the University. In addition to Theatre Department faculty productions, the C. Walsh hosts a wide variety of events and programs from Student Activities, the Performing Arts Office and other academic departments around the University.
The Modern Theatre
In 2010, the Theatre Department celebrated the re-opening of the historic Modern Theatre. Located in the heart of Boston's Theatre District, the 185 seat, state of the art theatre is a cultural center for the Suffolk and Greater Boston communities. The interior walls are covered by a stunning original mural by Tony award-winning Broadway set designer, John Lee Beatty. The Modern Theatre was a 2011 recipient of the prestigious Preservation Honor Award from the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
