Huntington Theatre's ‘Rapture, Blister, Burn’ presents witty, poignant tale of two women

Comedy is on stage at the Boston Center for the Arts through June 30

The Huntington Theatre Company production of Gina Gionfriddo’s smart and poignant comedy, “Rapture, Blister, Burn,” on stage at the Boston Center for the Arts through June 30, brings out the play’s fast-paced wit and, along with the humor, its touch of doubt and heartache. Directed by Huntington Artistic Director Peter DuBois, the winning production examines the tradeoffs faced by two women, both 42, who find that each wants what the other has in life.
