James (Hill, James, & Whitaker) designed the building, which seats approximately 1,600 people. Originally conceived as The Lyric Theatre by developer Charles H. Bond, it was taken over by The Shubert Organization in 1908 after Bond's death.The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980. In February 1996, the Wang Center signed a 40-year lease agreement with the Shubert Organization. In November 1996, the theatre reopened after being renovated with the first national tour of the musical Rent.On November 1, 2016, the theater was renamed the Shubert Theatre at the Boch Center. The naming rights to the Citi Performing Arts Center, which manages the theater, were purchased by the Boch family, and it is now known as the Boch Center.
