American Repertory Theater

Cambridge, Massachusetts

The American Repertory Theater (A.R.T) at Harvard University produces groundbreaking work in Cambridge and beyond. A.R.T. seeks to expand the boundaries of theater by programming events that immerse audiences in transformative experiences. An ArtsAmplified grant of $900,000 will support the commissioning and development of work that reasserts A.R.T. as a vital public institution, operating from its two theaters in Harvard Square and throughout Greater Boston. Grant activities will involve deepening staff capacity and local partnerships, as well as preparing world premiere productions.

"As we continue to stretch what we think theater can be—and how A.R.T. can be more than a building on Brattle Street—we are excited about the possibilities of the impact we can make on our community as a public space, and about collaborations with our colleagues across the river." –Diane Paulus, Artistic Director
