Whether it's a performance in a historic venue in the Theater District or right here on campus, we've got your ticket to some of the best shows in Boston! Our ArtsAlive! cultural and performing arts series is designed to provide opportunities for Northeastern alumni and their families to experience theater, music, sculpture, and other forms of art while celebrating their Husky bond. Each program is coupled with a reception that showcases members of the Northeastern community who engage in discussions related to the performance or event.
