Kirsten Greenidge: Inspired by the Huntington

4y ago


In 1986, Kirsten Greendige attended a student matinee performance of Wilson's JOE TURNER'S COME AND GONE. The experience was a seminal one for her, one that inspired her to become a playwright. 16 years later, her play THE LUCK OF THE IRISH broke Huntington records when it made its world premiere at the Calderwood Pavilion at the BCA / South End, and Kirsten would go on to win an Obie Award for the Off Broadway production of her play MILK LIKE SUGAR. Check out this video from Kirsten about how the Huntington has made a difference to her. The Huntington's Student Matinee Series provides discounted and free tickets to more than 5,000 middle and high school students each season, and this season, we've felt its lasting impact particularly powerfully. Your support helps us continue to impact the lives of tens of thousands of young people each season. For every dollar you contribute to our Annual Fund before June 30, Huntington Board Chairman Carol Deane will contribute an additional two dollars, thereby tripling your gift. (For example, if you give $100, Carol will give an additional $200, tripling your impact to $300.) For more information or to donate, please visit Video shot, edited, and produced by Thom Dunn:
