Larry Carpenter
Huntington Theatre Company & Missouri Repertory Theatre
Peter Altman, Producing Artistic Director
"Director Larry Carpenter and choreographer Daniel Pelzig have become the go-to guys when it comes to musicals at the Huntington; they collaborated on the stunning Iolanthe last season.... Here they have done an uncanny job of recapturing the look and feel, the sounds and social gestures of New York in the anxiously optimistic '70s."
The Patriot Ledger

"Once again, Carpenter... delivers a polished and intelligent production that captures the emotion as well as the ballyhoo'd cynicism of the much-admired musical."
Boston Phoenix

"...the Huntington certainly deserves the extended success it is having with this production."

"Perhaps the most significant aspect of Carpenter's production... is the richness of Bobby's character. He is fleshed out here, partly as the result of Carpenter's interpretive devices.... The rap against Sondheim is that... his musicals have a cold, distancing edge. Carpenter and his crew know otherwise. This Company gives us Sondheim in all his rich colors."
