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!

Homebrewing the Future!

Over the last 2 months (basically, over the time it took to make my Blood Orange Hefeweizen), I’ve been the subject of an interactive “magazine” article about homebrewing. From what I understand, the idea of the magazine is “Old is New” — that is, to present old-fashioned or time honored practices, traditions, and hobbies in a brand new light, with the aid of new media. The completed project is intend for view on an iPad, and should be released on the iTunes store in the coming weeks. In the meantime, here’s the first part of the project, a short video focusing on me and my brewing exploits. Part Two to come….whenever I see it.

Thanks to Nick and Braden for this! (and to Brittany Burke for lending her hands & help to the bottling process)
