Boston Court is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that is dedicated to creating and presenting works that are innovative, diverse, vital and adventurous in an intimate setting. Since our founding in 2003, we’ve produced dozens of plays and hundreds of concerts, including many world premiere plays and many debuts of new or reimagined musical works.

We delight in providing you innovative, thought-provoking art in a first-class, intimate venue, but ticket sales cover only 13% of our costs. It is only with donor support that our non-profit performing arts center (Tax ID #56-2390086) is able to achieve its mission and to create an experience you can’t find elsewhere in Southern California.

Please consider a donation today, and review our donor benefits to make the most of your Boston Court experience.
