The Huntington Staff plans to Leave with the Wrong Girl

Over at the Boston University Theatre this past week the Huntington’s Production and Artistic Departments have been busily putting together our next production Becky Shaw, starting performances tonight.

But across the street in the Admin offices young staff members from all departments are pooling their resources for our first 35 Below Wrap Party, which will take place in Studio 210 following tonight's performance, titled Leave with the Wrong Girl.

It’s shaping up to be quite an event: lights are being hung, funky couches being pulled from prop storage, even a special cocktail, “The Wrong Girl,” is being concocted. All these efforts, and the less sexy sounding ones too, will help turn the black box theatre into a hip lounge-y nightspot. A stage space is being set up for local band MISS FAIRCHILD.

A couple of the committee members had a great meeting yesterday with our reps at SYMPHONY 8 who will be providing the catering spread for this event. Lots of easy to eat finger foods and for any one who hasn’t tried executive chef, Josh Davis’ skewers you’re in for a treat!

Patrons will be greeted by a red carpet photo shoot, entered in a raffle, and decked out with the snazzy nametags you’ve ever seen before being encouraged to mingle and enjoy the music, food, and drink. Guests will be able to meet some of the actors and designers who are bringing Becky Shaw to life, as well as actors from Stick Fly, another Huntington production playing across town at the Calderwood Pavilion at the BCA.

Young Huntington staff members will be out in droves and able to share insights about their work for the Huntington. A great number of folks have already purchased tickets for the event, the food and band are all lined up, but there are still a few last minute details to take care of to make sure that tonight is completely awesome. So I’m signing off to go move some couches.
