The Legendary Wilbur Theatre in Boston

Wilbur Theatre, a legendary theatre in Boston

"Ye Wilbur Theatre" was its first name when opened in 1914 (Today only called Wilbur Theatre). Situated in the middle of Boston Historic Center on Tremor street, it was designed by famous theatre architect Clarence Blackhal at the top of the Bostonian Theatrical Age. Its architecture is inspired by American styles, specially by Federal Revival style and not by European style as was usual in that epoch.

You will be surprised to know the plays which have had their world premieres in this theatre: "Our Town" by Thornton Wilder, "A Streetcar Named Desire" by Tennessee Williams, "Long Day's Journey Into Night" by Eugene O'Neill, among others.

Today works as a comedy and music venue.

Here the photographs I took during my visit to Boston in January 2010.
