The Huntington Theatre Company will
open its season at the Calderwood Pavilion at the Boston
Center for The Arts, 527 Tremont Street, with Academy Award-nominated
José Rivera’s "Boleros for the Disenchanted."
Directed by OBIE Award-winning Chay Yew,
the touching portrait of a marriage from courtship to enduring love
runs October 10 – November 15.
The company includes Socorro Santiago and Jaime
Tirelli (at left), Monica Raymund, Ellioit Villar,
Maria-Christina Oliveras, and Juan Javier Cardenas.
“This play is simply so beautiful,” comments Artistic Director Peter DuBois. “It is the most moving and intimate window into marriage that I’ve encountered in the theatre. I’ve never seen José tackle a love story like this. I think 'Boleros' is among the most profound new plays written in the last ten years.”
DuBois is dedicated to supporting new work at all stages of development. “I’m committed to giving plays second or third productions because I think that ‘premiere-itis,’ when theatres only want to produce the world premiere of something, doesn’t always serve the playwright. José has been at work on his script since the premiere last spring, and our production will give him the chance to build on this already gorgeous piece of writing.”
Rivera received OBIE Awards for his plays “Marisol”
and “References to Salvador Dalí Make
Me Hot.” His other plays include “Cloud
Tectonics,” “The House of Ramon Iglesia,” “The
Promise,” and “School of the Americas.”
He received Spain’s Goya Award, as well as Academy
Award and BAFTA Award nominations, for his adapted
screenplay of “The Motorcycle Diaries.”
