"Huntington Presents" Series
Brings Comedy and Stars to Town

Screen and stage star Campbell Scott, stand-up comedienne/monologist Judy Gold, Boston actress and playwright Rebekah Maggor, and internationally acclaimed performance artist Ennio Marchetto comprise the Huntington Theatre Company’s 2007-2008 “Huntington Presents” series to be presented at the Stanford Calderwood Pavilion at the Boston Center for the Arts. 
Huntington Artistic Director Nicholas Martin commented, “This series complements the Huntington’s regular season and allows us to bring a wider variety of voices and performances to Boston. ‘Huntington Presents’ shows are perfectly suited to the Calderwood Pavilion at the BCA, where the connections between performers and audiences are especially intimate.”
The 2007-2008 “Huntington Presents” line-up includes:
“The Atheist”

Marilyn Monroe morphs into Marilyn Manson, into Edith Piaf (at left) at lightning speed.  Eminem's rapping becomes Gloria Gaynor’s wailing in the blink of an eye.  A world of celebrity icons new and old unfolds as the original quick-change artist Ennio Marchetto turns origami into hilarious, family-friendly theatrical magic.  This international sensation has not been seen in the Boston area since 1994!



Tickets for “The Atheist” are available now. Tickets for “25 Questions,” “Shakespeare’s Actresses” and “Ennio!” are available exclusively to Huntington subscribers and go on sale to the general public online, by phone and in person on August 23 at Noon.
