Huntington Extends SMART PEOPLE Through 7/6

Due to extraordinary demand for the final production of its 2013-2014 Season, Huntington Theatre Company announces a second one-week extension to the run of Lydia R. Diamond's Smart People. It will now run thru Sunday, July 6, 2014 (full calendar below).

Tickets to extension performances are on sale now at; by phone at 617 266 0800; and in person at the Calderwood Pavilion at the BCA Box Office, 527 Tremont St. in Boston's South End, and the BU Theatre Box Office, 264 Huntington Avenue.

Smart People began performances on Friday, May 23 and opened officially on Wednesday, June 4 2014.

Smart People is a world premiere by Huntington Playwriting Fellow Lydia R. Diamond, author of the acclaimed Stick Fly, which was also extended by popular demand and became the hottest show in Boston in the spring of 2010. Smart People asks the question: are our beliefs and prejudices hard-wired into us? Four Harvard intellectuals - a doctor, an actress, a psychologist, and a neurobiologist studying the human brain's response to race - search for love, success, and identity in a complex world. With barbed wit, Diamond explores the inescapable nature of racism and other tricky topics in this controversial and fiercely funny new play, directed by Huntington Artistic Director Peter DuBois (The Power of Duff, Rapture, Blister, Burn and Sons of the Prophet at the Huntington).
