THE NICETIES -- The Huntington Theater Company starts early this season with an August 31 opening (and Sept 12 press night) for the explosive and buzzy new play, THE NICETIES, by Brookline-born playwright Eleanor Burgess.  The Huntington has encouraged Burgess for a few years, providing her first theater experiences as a Brookline H.S. student, and later naming her a Huntington Theatre Playwriting Fellow.  THE NICETIES, about a confrontation between a black Ivy League student and her white history professor that devolves into a national incident, was developed in large part during Burgess' fellowship.  Workshop showings of the play have been tense, sparking conversations about race, history and what's the truth behind what we teach?  Directed by Kimberly Senior (DISGRACED on Broadway).  Aug 31-Oct 6 at the Calderwood Pavilion at the Boston Center for the Arts
