Wilbur Theatre History

Entering its centennial year, the Wilbur Theatre in Boston, Massachusetts is ready to put on some spectacular shows. The building first opened its doors in 1914 and has been known to host comedy and live music and still does, although these days the focus is mostly on comedy. The building underwent a serious renovation in 2008 which completely revitalized the theater and it now stands as one of the most state of the art comedy theaters in the country. The Wilbur is situated right in the center of Boston's theater district which is one of the most vibrant in the country.

Trivia

The Wilbur Theatre, which opened in 1914, was the first theater in the United States to be inspired by American Colonial architecture instead of drawing from European inspirations. In fact, the porticos at the front of the theater were even taken straight from the Thomas Bailey Midrich House on Beacon Hill.
