I agree that I wish it were a larger theater. I disagree that it will be underutilized. The organization that was brought onboard to run the programming, Global Arts Live, already runs several shows per week at other venues (similarly sized or smaller) in/around Boston: https://www.globalartslive.orgI still say this sham of a theaterspace is way too small. At its size it will be underused rather than the weekly or daily attraction it could be.
They discuss wanting/needing their own venue, and I can't imagine they won't utilize it once it's here.
Technically a new non-profit has been formed with GlobalArtsLive in front of programming: https://www.wbur.org/news/2021/03/10/new-arts-nonprofit-venue-cambridge-585-arts
I'm not quite at the level of cynicism you often share on aB about the Kendall area, despite also sharing many of your disappointments. I guess what I am saying is "sham" is too strong a word. You seem to be blaming the new developer, who had nothing to do with Constellation Center, for Constellation's failure.
I've seen enough decent steps taken by the new folks involved to at least be willing to give this theater and its associated arts organization a shot.
