Emerson College Faculty Vote to Oppose School’s Colonial Theatre Plan

Playbill:  Emerson College’s faculty voted Oct. 27 to oppose plans to turn Boston’s vintage Colonial Theatre, a theatre, which was built in 1900, predating all existing Broadway houses, into a student activity center and dining facility.

The resolution states, in part, that the “plans were developed without sufficient input from faculty, students, alumni and other city, regional and national stakeholders.” It calls “on the administration of Emerson College and its Board of Trustees to pursue alternative plans for a dining hall and the restoration or reconstruction of the Colonial [Theatre] in concert with faculty and other stakeholders.”

    We should run these people out of town on a rail – just like in Colonial days!
