Under the guidance of newly appointed artistic director Nicholas Martin, the Huntington Theatre plans to open two new theatre spaces in Boston by the end of 2003. Working in concert with the Boston Center for the Arts (BCA) the Huntington plans to construct a 350-seat legitimate theatre—Boston’s first in 70 years—as well as a 200-seat black box meant to provide performance space to smaller theatre organizations.
Huntington also plans to expand its “commitment to developing and producing new work” by launching a new play-reading program, Breaking Ground. Comprising informal readings of new plays under consideration or in development at Huntington, the program starts in January 2001.
