Boston University’s state-of-the-art Joan and Edgar Booth Theatre complex officially opened to the public last Thursday, boasting 75,000-feet of space for performers and artists of all kinds. It is named for Joan and Edgar Booth, whose son-in-law, BU trustee Steve Zide, donated $10 million toward the facility. Professors from across the College of Fine Arts lauded the building, and in a press release, University President Robert Brown called it the “centerpiece for the role that the students and faculty of the School of Theatre play in infusing the arts into our campus.”
