Huntington Theatre Company: 2013-2014 Season

Join us on the Avenue of the Arts for a captivating new musical adaptation by visionary director Mary Zimmerman (Candide), a contemporary revival of A.R. Gurney's comedy on the rocks; a sexy Broadway smash; and Anton Chekhov's emotionally rich classic brought to life by Nicholas Martin and Kate Burton (The Cherry Orchard)...

...and the South End for a moving new drama about a newscaster striving for connections; a stirring new play about the tension between loyalty to country or family by Melinda Lopez (Sonia Flew); and a sharp new play that explores the inescapable nature of racism and other tricky topics by Lydia R. Diamond (Stick Fly).

 

2013-2014 Schedule:

 


The Jungle Book

 

From the imagination of Tony Award winner Mary Zimmerman (Candide) comes a captivating new musical adaptation of a timeless favorite based on Rudyard Kipling's time-honored tales and featuring music from the classic Disney film.

 

The Power of Duff

 

When burnt-out local TV newscaster Charlie Duff suddenly begins offering a prayer at the end of his nightly broadcasts, he becomes a popular and controversial figure to an expanding audience. 

 


The Cocktail Hour

 

When John interrupts his parents' pre-dinner cocktail to announce that he has written a play about them, the revelations and recriminations start to flow just as easily as the martinis in this heartfelt comedy about the ties that bind.

 

Venus In Fur

 

Vanda has her eyes on the lead role in an adaptation of the classic erotic novel Venus in Fur, but her charged audition for the director becomes an electrifying game of cat and mouse that blurs the lines between fantasy & reality, seduction & power, and love & sex.

 


The Seagull

 

Renowned Chekhov interpreters Kate Burton and Nicholas Martin reunite to capture the humor and pathos in Chekhov's masterpiece about love, missed connections, and what it means to be an artist.

 

Becoming Cuba

 

In 1890s Cuba, widowed Adela runs a pharmacy, indifferent to the mounting conflict around her. But when the rebellion comes home to Havana, she must choose between loyalty to country or to family.

 

Smart People

 

Four Harvard intellectuals navigate the complexities of race, ambition, friendship, and the human brain in this controversial and fiercely funny new play by Huntington Playwriting Fellow Lydia R. Diamond and directed by Huntington Artistic Director Peter DuBois.
