Welcome to the Press Room for Celebrity Series of Boston.

We are a non-profit performing arts presenting organization. Our mission is to present performing artists who inspire and enrich our community. We believe in the power of excellence and innovation in the performing arts to enrich life experience, transform lives, and build better communities. We envision a community of Greater Boston where the performing arts are a valued, life-long, shared experience — on stages, on streets, in neighborhoods — everywhere. For more information about our programs and history, visit our About page.
