Past Productions

Since its founding in 1980, the A.R.T. has welcomed leading American and international theater artists to stage world premieres, bold reinterpretations of classical texts, and provocative new music theater productions.

We are in the process of redesigning our website and will be migrating all of the historical content on our productions later this summer. If you have any specific questions about a past production before then, please email us directly here.
