Huntington Theatre Company information
Boston's leading award-winning theater company, the Huntington specializes in developing new plays, staging many shows before they're transferred to Broadway (several of which have won Tonys). Seven major works by August Wilson were performed by the Huntington before going on to fame in New York. The company’s credentials also include more than 50 world premieres of works by playwrights such as Tom Stoppard and Christopher Durang.
The Huntington usually stages its shows at the Boston University Theatre (built in 1925), but its secondary venue is the Calderwood Pavilion at the Boston Center for the Arts .
