Yale Repertory Theatre

About this Venue

This converted church is home to Yale Repertory Theatre, a Tony Award-winning professional theater company that produces 5-6 shows each season. The building was formerly the Calvary Baptist Church, originally constructed in 1871; when the church moved to a new location in 1967, the building was converted into a 485-seat theater and re-opened in 1970. For Yale Rep, the building has been the location for several important world premieres that later went onto Broadway or further renown, including several plays by August Wilson.
