Whether it's a performance in an 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, and sculpture while celebrating their Husky bond. Each program is coupled with a reception that showcases members of the Northeastern faculty who engage in discussions related to the performance.

Launched in the spring of 2007, ArtsAlive! has enjoyed remarkable success while providing alumni with the chance to see unforgettable performances, including many fresh off the stages of Broadway.

Help us celebrate the importance and vitality of the arts as we raise the curtain on another exciting season of ArtsAlive! events.
