1 Day to Previews

Thursday - January 8.

I've no time to write today so - not unlike Miss Moffat - I'll assign you a little reading material. Be prepared for a quiz tomorrow.

We've got lots of nice news to share, including big features about Corn and a terrific review for Peter DuBois' production of Becky Shaw from Charles Isherwood in the NY Times! Congratulations, Peter.

The Corn is Green:
A charming feature in The Boston Globe

And a great feature on WBUR's Morning Edition

Playbill announces that we begin Friday

We're included (#2) in Geoff Edger's cover story in the Boston Globe's "G" about new ways to get inexpensive tickets (Facebook).

(And yes - we still do student rush tickets ($15), last row seats ($20), $25 tickets for 35 Below, and reduced prices for preview performances. $10 off for Boston University staff, students, faculty, and alumni as well as $5 off for seniors and service members. Groups (ten plus) get discounts (call Adam at 617 273-1525) and we have outreach programs for community organizations and programs (call Naheem 617 273-1564). And then there are all the special offers you'll get if you sign up on our email list. Sound confusing? Just call our box office and ask 617 266-0800)

Becky Shaw:

The Huntington Theatre Company's production of The Corn is Green, by Emlyn Williams, playing January 9 through February 8, 2009 at the Huntington's mainstage, the B.U. Theatre, 264 Huntington Ave, Boston, MA. Buy tickets online or call our Box Office at 617 266-0800

I saw the show last night on Opening and it was phenomenal! A very lovely little story that has a lot of heart. I think audiences will really love this one. I liked Mary Faber as Bessie Watty and Kate Burton was wonderful (channeling a little bit of Julie Andrews at times). Will LeBow as the Squire was also hilarious and fun.
A stunning set, too. Well done all!
