Facilities That Power Creativity

Learning at Emerson extends within and beyond the classroom, and we aim to provide our students with the resources they need to create powerful work. With access to landmark theaters like the Cutler Majestic and professional-grade production studios like the Di Bona Family Television Studio, our students are able to realize their creative vision and compete at the top of their industries.

This facility houses the thrust-style Semel Theater, the 108-seat Greene Theater, the Bobbi Brown and Steven Plofker Design Technology and Makeup Suite, and a costume shop.
