Behind the Scenes at the Huntington Theatre
   
  This three-day seminar offers an intimate look at theatre-in-action at the Boston's leading professional company. Participants will attend three matinee productions-----Man in the Ring (Michael Cristofer) is the incredible true story of six-time world champion boxer Emile Griffith and the fatal fight he could never forget. This sweeping tale covers Emile's humble beginnings in the Virgin Islands, his passionate love affairs, and the infamous, life changing Madison Square Garden match against his archrival. He searches for redemption and must confront his past in this epic new play, imbued with warmth and the sounds of the Caribbean -------A Doll's House, Part 2 (Lucas Hnath) Nora famously slammed the door on her marriage, leaving her husband and children behind in Ibsen's groundbreaking classic, but what happened to the iconic heroine next? This audacious sequel imagines her 15 years later as a successful writer and independent woman, urgently seeking to finalize her divorce. Universally acclaimed on Broadway, this smart and sophisticated new comedy raises fascinating questions about marriage and the ways the roles of women have--and haven't --changed----- Romeo and Juliet (Shakespeare) Impassioned young lovers are caught between the violence and prejudices of their feuding families in Shakespeare's most famous and enduring love story. In helming the first Shakespeare play produced by the Huntington in eight years, Huntington Artistic Director Peter DuBois brings an exhilarating and modern sensibility to this timeless classic about the intensity and joy of first love and attraction amid a dangerously divided community. Through discussions with the artists and artisans responsible for producing, designing and managing a full-scale production, participants will gain valuable insight into the theatrical process.
