Creator Winnie Holzman Screening My So-Called Life in Boston
Get ready to relive all of the ’90s teenage angst as creator Winnie Holzman is hosting a special screening of the pilot for her cult classic series, My So-Called Life, at the Huntington Theatre Company in Boston this fall.
The event, which is free and open to the public, will be co-hosted by WBUR‘s Robin Young and will kick off at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, October 1.
Although the show only aired for one season, My So-Called Life has been hailed by many critics as a groundbreaking series for its ability to tackle tough topics such as child abuse, LGBT rights, and teen alcohol use. The show was also included in TIME‘s list of the 100 best television shows.
Fans may recall that My So-Called Life helped launch the careers of current Hollywood stars Claire Danes and Jared Leto, who’ve done pretty well for themselves since making the transition from the world of TV to the big screen.
In addition to the screening, Holzman is also bringing her new comedy Choice to Boston this fall. Considering she wrote the book behind the hit Broadway musical Wicked, theater buffs should be pumped to see what Holzman is bringing to the stage next.
Choice follows the journey of journalist Zipporah Zunder, who is forced to navigate her way through her most challenging assignment to date as she explores issues related to women’s rights.
The comedy kicks off its string of performances on Friday, October 16 at the Boston Center for the Arts’ Calderwood Pavilion and will be playing in town through November 15.
