Lansdowne House Bows In Boston

Beantown has a new Off Broadway-size theater, the 199-seat Lansdowne Street Playhouse on Lansdowne Street, adjacent to Fenway Park, home of the Red Sox.

The flexible-seating theater is owned and will be operated by Boston’s Lyons Group, which owns and operates 16 Boston nightclubs, bars and restaurants. The Playhouse will mark the Group’s entry into theater ownership and operation.

It will be inaugurated with the Boston premiere of Howard Korder’s “Search & Destroy,” produced by the 3-year-old Boston-based Harrison Project. Its press opening is set for Feb. 1 and it will run for four weeks.

Under artistic director Peter Kelley, the nonprof Harrison Project is an actors’ company working under an Actors’ Equity guest-artist contract. Many of its members belong to the Screen Actors Guild or AFTRA.

The new Lansdowne Street Theater is the Harrison Project’s first permanent home. Previous Harrison productions have included the Boston premieres of Emily Mann’s “Execution of Justice” and Marlane Meyer’s “Etta Jenks.”
