About this show

Geoff Packard and Lauren Molina reprise their Helen Hayes Award-winning portrayals of Candide and Cunegonde, respectively, in the Huntington Theatre Company presentation of Leonard Bernstein's Candide, directed and newly adapted from the Voltaire by Mary Zimmerman. The story follows the young Candide, living on his Baron uncle's manor estate and studying the philosophy of Dr. Pangloss, who teaches that everything happens for the best. When Candide and the Baron's daughter Cunegonde fall in love and are discovered, they are cast out into the world. The audience takes a satirical ride with the pair through adventures and misfortunes that test their seemingly undoubting optimism.
