Peter DuBois“Theresa Rebeck’s succulent and biting comedy will have Boston audiences in stiches as we recall the details of our dating disasters. This explosively wild and smart comedy is the perfect night out on the town for women of all generations and the ideal remedy to combat any kind of winter blues!”— Huntington Artistic Director Peter DuBois
