About Agassiz Theater

Cambridge’s Agassiz House — which houses the theater as well as other facilities — was built in 1904 and is now operated by the Radcliffe Institute. Eugene O’Neill, Philip Barry, Arthur Kopit, Stockard Channing, Peter Sellars and John Lithgow are among those who got their start on its stage. Professor William Alfred once said, “Agassiz Theatre is the nursery of every little theater in America.” The Agassiz is home to the Harvard-Radcliffe Gilbert and Sullivan Players, the annual South-Asian cultural celebration, “Ghungroo” and many other productions. Approximately 750 undergraduates are involved in Agassiz Theatre productions each year and thousands more attend its productions.

Plenty of great places in Harvard Square to eat. Adults might like Park on JFK since they take reservations and do NOT have televisions.

I wore Slacks and a sweater, dress in layers because the theater can be quite overheated in winter. .
