(BOSTON) – On Tuesday, the Huntington Theatre Company’s production of A Confederacy of Dunces became the second highest-grossing show in the company’s 33-year history, behind their 2013 hit production of The Jungle Book. Currently with over $1,600,000 in ticket sales and with four full weeks of performances remaining including an extension week due to popular demand, A Confederacy of Dunces has overtaken the sales record held by the Huntington’s 2003 production of Butley featuring Nathan Lane. 

Tickets for A Confederacy of Dunces are selling fast, but great seats are still available for performances now through December 20; see ticket information below. A Confederacy of Dunces is adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher from the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by John Kennedy Toole, directed by David Esbjornson (Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner and All My Sons) and features Nick Offerman of NBC’s “Parks and Recreation.”  The show is presented in cooperation with a team of developmental partners including Robert Guza, John Hardy, LSU Press, and Academy Award-winning filmmaker Steven Soderbergh.   

Production photos for A Confederacy of Dunces are now available and can be downloaded from the Huntington’s photo library. The following videos are also posted to the Huntington’s website:
