“We have assembled an incredible team of artists for next season,” says Huntington Theatre Company Artistic Director Peter DuBois. “Throughout the year, we will feature radically different approaches to adaptation, fresh investigations of classics by world-class directors, and important plays that spring from our own backyard. In combination, the plays will create dynamic collisions of ideas, stories, and perspectives.”
