Photo Flash: First Look at Nick Offerman and More in the World Premiere of A CONFEDERACY OF DUNCES in Boston

Huntington Theatre Company, the 2013 recipient of the Regional Theatre Tony Award and Boston magazine's Best Theatre of 2013 and 2014, announces the world premiere production of A Confederacy of Dunces, adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher from the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by John Kennedy Toole, directed by David Esbjornson (Guess Who's Coming to Dinner and All My Sons) and featuring Nick Offerman of NBC's "Parks and Recreation." Performances run November 11 - December 13, 2015 at the Huntington's mainstage, the BU Theatre. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

Nick Offerman will star as the larger-than-life character Ignatius J. Reilly: overweight, arrogant, eccentric, and still living in his mother's New Orleans home in the 1960s. Called the Don Quixote of the French Quarter, Ignatius has a singular outlook on life. His farcical odyssey includes visits to a department store and a strip club, and stints working at a pants factory and as a hot dog vendor. A Confederacy of Dunces is a hilarious wild ride, filled with colorful characters and comic misadventures.

A Confederacy of Dunces is presented in cooperation with a team of developmental partners including Robert Guza, John Hardy, LSU Press, and Academy Award-winning filmmaker Steven Soderbergh. It is the first show announced of the Huntington's 2015-2016 Season.
