Colonial Theatre to reopen in new deal with international producer

The Boston Globe: The London-based Ambassador Theatre Group has been chosen to operate Emerson College’s celebrated Colonial Theatre in a deal, announced Sunday evening, that is expected to breathe new life into Boston’s Theatre District.

The Colonial, which has been dark for more than a year, will benefit from the considerable reach and resources of the Ambassador group, one of the largest international producers of live theater. In addition to signing a 40-year lease, both parties will make substantial capital improvements to the 117-year-old Colonial, and the Ambassador group will explore making the venue available to local performing arts groups.
