Thank you Ilana. We also have a FAQ on new play development here for your reading pleasure.

I've also heard rumors that Present Laughter star Victor Garber will also perform at the Huntington's Annual Gala Benefit "Spotlight Spectacular" We are close to sold out, but there are a couple of tables and a few tickets left. The fundraising event, hosted by Tony Award winning Jason Alexander is on Monday April 30th at the new Westin Waterfront Hotel.

I'd suggest contacting Michelle Williams at 617 273-1536 or Mwilliams@huntingtontheatre.bu.edu
to join the fun.

On Saturday, May 5, between 12pm and 3pm, the Huntington will host an Open House at the Boston University Theatre.
