    Central Square Theater is a unique collaboration between two non-profit professional theater companies – The Nora Theatre Company (The Nora) and Underground Railway Theatre (URT) – with a combined track record of 50 years of excellence in producing theater and educational programming for the Greater Boston community.

    URT was founded in 1978 and The Nora in 1988, yet neither had a permanent venue until now. Increasing audience demand for show tickets combined with limited access to affordable production space made the search for a permanent location a critical concern.

    In July, 2008, The Nora Theatre Company and Underground Railway Theater moved into their first permanent theater home, the new state-of-the-art Central Square Theater, located in one of Cambridge’s most vibrant neighborhoods.
    Central Square Theater is not only a theater space, but also a model artistic and managerial partnership in which each resident company is maintaining its unique identity while working in tandem to fuel long-term sustainability, stimulate creativity, and add value to the community.

    The Boston Foundation recognized Central Square Theater in its ground-breaking report. Culture is Our Common Wealth, citing Central Square Theater as a “model partnership” and “best practice.” It also highlighted Central Square Theater in its 2008 publication There for the Arts as one of “the organizations that has contributed to making Greater Boston one of the most culturally rich cities in the world.”

      ... with the help of Tom and Ray, who contributed their voices to the project, Wesley Savick has cobbled a wacky plot, clever song parodies, and the Magliozzis’ trademark outrageous puns into "Car Talk: The Musical!!!"
