MacArthur “Genius” David Cromer brings his innovative concept to the Huntington to mount a production that features 29 local actors among the cast of 32. The production will inaugurate the Huntington’s use of the intimate, 250-seat Roberts Studio Theatre in the Huntington’s Calderwood Pavilion at the BCA and will coincide with the play’s 75th anniversary.
Renowned for its transparent stagecraft, sensory experience, and the audience’s proximity to the actors, Cromer’s production of Our Town generated widespread critical and audience acclaim when mounted in Chicago, New York, and Los Angeles where the production was recognized as a once-in-a-lifetime event and the Our Town of a generation. The Off Broadway run lasted more than 600 performances, making it the longest-running production in the history of the play.

ABOUT OUR TOWN
In 1901 Grover’s Corners, New Hampshire, teenagers George and Emily fall in love, marry, and live out their lives as one small New England town becomes a microcosm of every day life. MacArthur “Genius” David Cromer’s wonderfully intimate staging of Thornton Wilder’s beloved Pulitzer Prize-winning classic was an Off Broadway sensation, playing for more than 600 performances.
Our Town is the most produced play in the United States, and it is believed that a production is playing somewhere each day of the year. 2013 marks the 75th Anniversary of Our Town, which premiered at Princeton’s McCarter Theatre on January 22, 1938 and began performances at Boston’s Wilbur Theatre on January 25 before debuting in New York on February 4.
