Huntington sets season

Two world preems at Boston theater co.

Two world preems — one by veteran scribe Theresa Rebeck, the other by up-and-comer Noah Haidle — highlight the 2006-07 season at Boston’s Huntington Theater Company.

Rebeck’s comedy “Mauritius” opens Oct. 6; Haidle’s dark comedy “Persephone,” staged by artistic director Nicholas Martin, opens March 30.

Both scribes have heightened their profiles with recent comedies. Rebeck’s solo piece “Bad Dates” has had multiple productions at regionals over the past few years, while Haidle’s “Mr. Marmalade” had an Off Broadway run earlier this year.

August Wilson’s final play, “Radio Golf,” will make one more stop on its way to Broadway, opening the theater’s 25th season Sept. 8, in a staging by Kenny Leon.

Kate Burton will head the cast of Chekhov’s “The Cherry Orchard,” also directed by Martin, opening Jan. 5.

The season closes May 18, 2007, with a revival of David Rabe’s “Streamers,” directed by Scott Ellis.

Two more productions are still to be named.
