Victor Garber to Star in Huntington Theatre's Present Laughter
The show replaces a previously announced production of David Rabe's Streamers, which will now be presented in November 2007. That production will be directed by Scott Ellis, who will be helming the Broadway production of Curtains this spring.
Present Laughter, which first bowed on Broadway in 1946, tells the comic story of Garry Essendine, a self-absorbed matinee idol. Clifton Webb starred in the original production. It has been revived three times on Broadway, with Coward, George C. Scott, and Frank Langella respectively playing the role of Essendine.
