  • Sweat

    by Lynn Nottage | Directed by Kimberly Senior
    January 31 - March 1, 2020
    Avenue of the Arts / Huntington Avenue Theatre

    The Pulitzer Prize-winning and Tony Award-nominated Best Play by Lynn Nottage (Ruined) comes alive in a moving and urgently relevant new production directed by Kimberly Senior (The Niceties). Based on interviews with the residents of Reading, Pennsylvania, a group of close friends struggle to stay connected when their factory is at risk of collapse. In a neighborhood bar, each of them reaches for their piece of the American dream. Can their friendships survive this test? Nottage weaves a tale of trust and doubt, longtime bonds and short-term possibilities. The New York Times raves, “Superb… Nottage is writing at the peak of her powers.”


  • She the People: Girlfriends’ Guide to Sisters Doing It for Themselves

    February 18 - March 8, 2020
    South End / Calderwood Pavilion at the BCA

    Hot off rave reviews and extended engagements in Chicago and Toronto, She the People: Girlfriends’ Guide to Sisters Doing It for Themselves is heading to Boston. A high-octane show entirely created, designed and performed by the fearlessly funny women of world-famous comedy mecca The Second City, She the People is a mimosas-and-madness-fueled foray that proudly roasts the patriarchy in a mashup of sketches and songs that reclaims comedy for everyone!


  • Our Daughters, Like Pillars

    by Kirsten Greenidge
    Directed by Kimberly Senior
    March 20 - April 19, 2020
    South End / Calderwood Pavilion at the BCA

    It’s a surprise to everyone when Lavinia invites her sisters and their mother to a gorgeous summer house in New Hampshire for a vacation that she hopes will last forever. But when the sisters’ stepmother Missy – the woman who inherited their dad’s everything – shows up unannounced, long-simmering feuds flare up and family bonds are called into question. Where is this family heading? Can they be happy with what they’ve been given? And who invited Missy? Obie Award-winning playwright and Boston native Kirsten Greenidge (Luck of the Irish, Milk Like Sugar) and director Kimberly Senior (The Niceties) tell the incredibly funny and moving story of one whirlwind weekend in the life of a contemporary black American family.

    Avenue of the Arts / Huntington Avenue Theatre

    Celebrate the 50th anniversary of Pulitzer and Nobel Prize-winning author Toni Morrison’s acclaimed debut novel The Bluest Eye. Brought to life as a tremendously moving theatrical event by Boston favorite Lydia R. Diamond (Stick Fly, Smart People), The Bluest Eye tells the story of Pecola, a young black girl who believes everything in her world would be made wonderful if only she had blue eyes. Enthralling, gorgeously written, and incredibly emotional, The Bluest Eye asks powerful questions concerning racism, beauty, and identity with stunning grace and subtlety.


  • Lackawanna Blues

    Written, Performed & Directed by Ruben Santiago-Hudson
    July 9 - 25, 2020
    Avenue of the Arts / Huntington Avenue Theatre

    Tony Award winner Ruben Santiago-Hudson returns to the Huntington where he was memorably seen in August Wilson’s Gem of the Ocean and Seven Guitars in his riveting, lyrical, and gorgeous autobiographical play about growing up in the 1950s in a boarding house on the banks of Lake Erie. At the center of it all is Miss Rachel, or Nanny, the woman who raised young Ruben and welcomed a colorful group of eccentrics into her home and heart. The Los Angeles Times says this tour-de-force work with live blues music “enthralls,” adding, “Santiago-Hudson conjures multitudes with his rich memory and malleable voice.” And The New York Times says that it’s “performed with marvelous subtlety and rare humanity.”
