On Monday, we held the Huntington’s inaugural Script Club meeting, which was hosted by our Artistic Director, Peter DuBois, and was great fun! Set up like a book club, members had previously read the script for Sons of the Prophet (our next production, playing April 1 – May 1 at the Calderwood Pavilion at the BCA), and then gathered to discuss the play. Each participant had astute impressions and perspective – varied and incredibly perceptive. (But then we know we have a very intelligent audience!) Peter, who is directing of Sons of the Prophet, provided insight into the show, including into the process he personally goes through as he’s conceiving a production’s (myriad!) elements.
Script Club was moderated Monday by Literary Associate Charles Haugland. Thanks go to him and to Chris Carcione, who brought a lot of creativity to the event and created its terrific graphic design.
Our next Script Club will be Wednesday, April 27th, and the “assignment” is Shakespeare’s Richard III. If you are interested in learning more about Script Club, contact Chris Carcione (CCarcione@huntingtontheatre.bu.edu or 617 273-1531).
Script Club is a member benefit for Huntington donors of $250 or more.
