Bianca Amato and James Waterston will star as Amanda and Elyot, respectively, in the Huntington Theatre Company production of Noël Coward's Private Lives, to run May 25-June 24. Maria Aitken will direct.

In the play, newlyweds Elyot and Sibyl are honeymooning at a hotel in northern France where they unexpectedly encounter Elyot's ex-wife Amanda and her new husband Victor on the adjacent balcony celebrating their recent nuptials. The romance between Elyot and Amanda is quickly revived, and the two desert their new spouses and flee to Amanda's Paris flat. There, the stormy rivalry that first divided them rekindles in time for Sibyl and Victor to rediscover the pair in the throes of a passionate fight.

The cast will also feature Autumn Hurlbert (Sibyl), Jeremy Webb (Victor), and Paula Plum (Louise).

The production will feature choreography by Daniel Pelzig, scenic design by Allen Moyer, costume design by Candice Donnelly, lighting design by Philip S. Rosenberg, and sound design by Rob Milburn and Michael Bodeen.
