"Beautifully maintained venue! The private room booked for the concert really highlighted the performers, great sound, lighting, and ambiance!"

Dominique LeBoeuf

“I was able to pull off a production that I don’t think I would have been able to do in a different space. Because the theater was so financially accessible, I was able to hire professionals who helped me through all of the production aspects.”

Frequently Asked Questions


Do I need a technical director?

If your event is using our light or sound boards and/or rehanging the lighting grid, you will need a technical director. The Foundry Consortium is not currently able to supply a technical director.


What is The Foundry’s performance reservation cancellation/refund policy?

Deposit is non-refundable in the event of cancellation. The Foundry must be given two weeks’ notice for either cancellation or rescheduling. Should less than two weeks’ notice be given, payment will still be due and any payments made will not be refunded. If the event needs to be rescheduled rather than canceled, and a future date is found, The Foundry will apply payments to the future event. Please note that we cannot guarantee availability.


When will I know if my performance reservation is approved?

Your rental is finalized once we receive a signed contract and event deposit.


How do I get there using public transit?

The building is 0.4 miles away from the Kendall MIT stop where you can catch the red line and 64, 68, 85, CT2, 64, 68, and 85 buses. The building is 0.5 miles away from the Lechmere stop where you can catch the green line and 69, 80, 87, and 88 buses. You can find walking directions to The Foundry here.


What is the parking situation like?

We don't have designated parking, so your best bet would be finding public parking on the neighboring streets (Third St, Rogers St, Fifth Street). There are also a number of parking garages in the area if you need a longer term solution. We have a loading area if you need to pick up or drop off large objects, but you'll need to find parking after dropping off. See parking options here.
