Theatre Department Director Marilyn Plotkins discussed the revival of the Modern Theatre on WGBH’s “Greater Boston” show.

“The Modern made Modern” segment from Thursday, Jan. 6, shows the theater, performance footage, and an interview with Plotkins, who describes seeing the site through from a wreck to a “jewel-box” theater.

Host Emily Rooney and reporter Jared Bowen talk about the Modern’s history, upcoming performances, and how Suffolk University is “up and coming” in the Downtown Crossing/Ladder District area.
