The Wilbur Theatre is a historic theater at 244-250 Tremont Street in Boston, Massachusetts. The Wilbur Theatre was originally opened in 1914 but was revitalized in 2008. The Wilbur Theatre dwells in the heart of Boston's historic theater district and is known for hosting live comedy and music.
In 2007 the theatre was put on the market. Bill Blumenreich, owner of the Comedy Connection, put the building on lease in 2008. It now serves as the new home of the Comedy Connection in Boston (formerly located in Quincy Market), hosting both comedy and musical talent.
