Showcasing over 200 events each year, the BPC may just be the busiest theatre in Boston, and it is certainly the most unique.

The center contains 1,215 seats, state-of-the-art sound and lighting systems, and a full range of multimedia capabilities. Its relationship with Berklee College of Music affords professional quality recording of events and concerts.
