“From the award-winning work on the stages of our flagship companies to the remarkable and innovative pieces by Greater Boston’s adventurous small theatre scene, the range of work being produced in our region is among the most impressive in the country,” says David Colfer, general manager of Emerson Stage and Expo co-organizer. “By bringing so many theatre companies together under one roof at the Greater Boston Theatre Expo, organizations will connect with new supporters, and audiences will have the chance to explore this rich marketplace in a format that is convenient, efficient, and free.”

The event is produced by a committee dedicated to supporting, promoting, and raising the profile of Greater Boston’s vibrant and gifted theatre community. The committee was originally formed to help plan the Theatre Communications Group 2012 Conference, held in Boston. The committee includes leaders from the Mayor’s Office, ArtsBoston, StageSource, and a diverse group of theatre organizations.

“On a typical Friday night during the theatre season, Greater Boston theatre audiences have a choice of nearly 40 different theatrical productions from Portsmouth to Providence,” observes Michael Maso, Huntington Theatre Company managing director and Expo co-organizer. “But because of our geographic disparity, it can be easy to overlook our scope, scale, and economic impact on the region. The convergence of more than 50 organizations at the Greater Boston Theatre Expo will be a reminder of the theatre community’s breadth, variety, and vitality.”
