The Huntington Theatre Company has announced two additions to the upcoming season with Christopher Hampton's Les Liaisons Dangereuses — starring Michael T. Weiss — and Mat Smart's The Hopper Collection completing the 2005-06 lineup.

Artistic director Nicholas Martin also announced directors for the planned seven productions — five (including the two aforementioned) presented at the company's main stage Boston University Theatre and two at the Wimberly Theatre in the Stanford Calderwood Pavilion at the Boston Center for the Arts.

    Workshopped at a 2003 Breaking Ground reading, the new work finds its title character sitting on the roof overlooking the city, while she muses on her past with her father and future with her husband.
