Overview
More
Less than 24 miles from Boston, the fully restored Larcom Theatre is located in downtown Beverly, MA This gracious showplace featuring spectacular acoustics was built in 1912 (the same year as Fenway Park) by Harris and Glover Ware, two brothers and former vaudeville musicians from Marblehead, MA. For their new theatre,​ they chose the birth site of one of America's most widely read nineteenth-century poetesses, Lucy Larcom. After seven years of wowing audiences with his magic production at the 1920 Cabot Street Cinema Theatre (just 4 blocks away), Cesareo Pelaez, the founder of the Le Grand David stage magic ensemble, purchased the Larcom in 1984. Larcom's elegant horseshoe balcony, hand-painted antique pressed tin ceilings and original silk wall coverings take you back in time. In September 2016, a couple from Beverly purchased the theatre and transformed it into​ a multi-arts venue enriching the community with music, dance, theatre, comedy, variety shows, and more.

This is an older place that had been closed for a long time. It was recently purchased and restored. The changes are quite nice and very good acoustics. Drinks a bit high.

Response from Lisa C | Property representative |
I prefer balcony side seats 1 & 2 over second-row orchestra centre. The orchestra floor seats are lower than the stage until you get to the fifth row (E.) At that point you are eye level with the stage.
