God! Of! Carnage!

Here’s a new teaser trailer I put together for our upcoming production of GOD OF CARNAGE at the Huntington. The show won the Tony and Olivier Awards in New York last year for Best Comedy, and it’s definitely something worth something. It’s a quick, 70 minute romp of chaos about two couples in Brooklyn who come together after their children get in a fight on a playground. Hilarity ensues. (There’s also a film version, directed by Roman Polanski, simply called “Carnage” that’s playing at some small arthouse cinemas around the country right now) The show is directed by Danny Goldstein, who most recently directed the Godspell revival that’s currently playing on Broadway, so that’s cool, too. Previews start this Friday (when we also have our totally awesome 35 Below after party with booze and a live band and all sorts of fun stuff) and runs through February 5.

Anyway, here’s the video. Woof Woof.

The Huntington’s 30th Anniversary Season

The Huntington Theatre Company, Boston’s leading professional theatre company since 1982, is launching into their 30th Anniversary Season this year. Tickets went on sale yesterday for a season that includes Mary Zimmerman’s acclaimed production of Candide, the completion of August Wilson’s 20th Century Cycle with Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom (ironically, his first hit play, and the last that the company is producing), the hit New York comedy God of Carnage (the film of which, directed by Roman Polanski, comes out in November), and Noël Coward’s Private Lives, along with three world premieres.

I’ve spent the last few weeks re-designing the Huntington’s website to fit with the new 30th Anniversary branding image, and I have to say, I’m pretty happy with the results. Check it out — and while you’re at it, maybe treat yourself to one of our shows along the way.

Oh, also? The entire season is going to be presented in SHOCKING REAL-D 3D!
