This onetime nickelodeon reopened as a 292-seat live theater in 1996. After suffering a stroke in 2010, former owner Michael Cullen sold the Mercury to a group of investors led by former Porchlight Music Theatre artistic director L. Walter Stearns, who reportedly plans to produce original shows at the Mercury in addition to offering the theater for rentals.
