Kenny Leon takes train to Boston

Director takes on two Huntington shows

Kenny Leon will be doing double duty in Beantown next season.

The Atlanta-based director will helm two shows in Huntington Theater Company’s 2009-10 season: a revival of August Wilson’s “Fences” (Sept. 11-Oct. 11) and Lydia R. Diamond’s “Stick Fly,” in association with D.C.’s Arena Stage (March 26-May 1).

Also on tap for the second season under artistic director Peter DuBois is the world premiere of “A Long and Winding Road,” a one-person “musical memoir” co-conceived by singer-actress Maureen McGovern and Philip Himburg, who also helms (Oct. 9-Nov. 15).

Paula Vogel’s “A Civil War Christmas: An American Musical Celebration,” which premiered last December at New Haven’s Long Wharf Theater, will get a Boston bow Nov. 13-Dec. 13. And Gina Gionfriddo’s “Becky Shaw” will have its New England premiere (Jan. 8-Feb. 7), staged by DuBois, who directed the comedy Off Broadway.

Two further productions are still to be announced.
