2013 Bostonians of the Year Honorable Mention: Peter DuBois

Peter DuBois

In the five years since he took over as the Huntington Theatre Company’s artistic director, Peter DuBois hasn’t changed his focus. He’s built on the company’s rich history both by nurturing a slate of local playwrights and recruiting high-profile projects from out of town. He’s done it while staying connected to New York City without getting lost in the neon lights.

“We have a deep commitment to the city that we’re part of,” DuBois told the Globe earlier this year. “But then we feel we’re part of a global community and part of a very vibrant theater scene.” That’s not just lip service. While the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge under artistic director Diane Paulus has become a kind of farm league for Broadway, the Huntington’s epicenter remains firmly in Boston.
