Music & Scenes from Private Lives

Here’s another video I put together for the Huntington’s production of Private Lives by Noël Coward, which runs through June 24 at the Avenue of the Arts / BU Theatre. This one showcases some of the music and delightful physical comedy of the show, into one quick hilarious montage. If this doesn’t make you want to see it, well, then there’s no hope for you at all.

Private Lives at the Huntington

Here’s my latest behind-the-scenes video for the Huntington, featuring interviews with Private Lives director Maria Aitken, and cast members James Waterston and Bianca Amato. Previews start this Friday, and the show runs through the end of June. It’s a hilarious Noël Coward comedy, kind of a posh and witty comedy of manners about marriage and divorce and other equally silly things.

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!
