Image from Present Laughter

"Will satisfy anyone longing for an evening of nonstop merriment!"
- The Wall Street Journal

"Brooks Ashmanskas turns in a side-splitting masterpiece of comic timing and absurd physical grace. He's not just funny; he's an irresistible comic force."
- The Boston Globe

"The best medicine! This 'Laughter' should heal just about anything that ails you."
- Boston Metro

Victor Garber (TV's "Alias") stars as aging matinee idol Garry Essendine in one of Noël Coward’s funniest and most delightful comedies. Devastatingly handsome and thoroughly charming, Garry lives his life like it's one grand performance. But on the eve of a major tour, things fall apart in hysterical fashion as he juggles old flames, a crazed playwright, and (gasp!) middle age. Nicholas Martin, the Huntington's own master of laughter, directs.

Approximate Running Time: 2 hours, 35 minutes; including 2 intermissions
