The press releases are flying out the door this week. Here's a quick heads upon next year's season.

You can read more about the plays and learn about subscribing online here. We have great subscription values next year starting at $25 per play.

"The Huntington Theatre Company announced today its 2007-2008 Season, which includes two world premieres by local playwrights, the final work by award-winning writer Wendy Wasserstein, a play that landed on all the major top ten lists of 2006, and American premiere of a West End London smash on it's way to Broadway, and a beloved classical musical.

This is the final season to be programmed by Huntington Artistic Director Nicholas Martin, who in June 2008 becomes Artist Emeritus for two years. Martin will also direct the season-closing musical, "She Loves Me."
