The Huntington Theatre Company announces its 2012-2013 Season. Continuing its 30-year tradition, the Huntington will present world-class productions of new works and classics made current that are created by the best local and national talent.

“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.”
