Barrington Stage Company is celebrating one of the greatest composers of the 20th Century.

From “I Got Rhythm” to “Embraceable You” to “Summertime,” George Gershwin’s soaring, glorious music will lift your spirits and warm your hearts. Featuring a cast of stellar Broadway singers, this concert is titled, appropriately enough, “Who Could Ask for Anything More?”

The production runs from June 10 – July 3rd outdoors at the BSC Production Center on Laurel Street in Pittsfield, MA.

To tell us more, we welcome Julianne Boyd (Director) - the Founder and Artistic Director of Barrington Stage Company and Musical Director Darren Cohen. Together, they’ve conceived the concert which features Allison Blackwell, Britney Coleman, Alan H. Green, Jacob Tishler, and Alysha Umphress.

Barrington Stage Company’s 2021 10x10 New Play Festival is – you guessed it – going virtual this year! The event is also celebrating its 10th year of presenting short plays during these short days of winter.

Streaming March 11–14 and 18–21, half of the original plays are directed by Matthew Penn, and the other half by BSC Artistic Director Julianne Boyd – who joined us.

The World Premiere of the new play, “American Underground,” by Brent Askari and directed by Julianne Boyd opens at Barrington Stage Company’s Boyd-Quinson Mainstage in Pittsfield, Massachusetts on October 2 and runs through October 20.

In the not-so-distant future, an interracial couple enjoys a visit from their college-aged son when a young Muslim woman arrives at their back door. She’s looking for safe passage via a new Underground Railroad as Muslims are being detained and imprisoned.

Suddenly, a government official knocks on their door wreaking havoc on the family. They must decide how much to risk to save an innocent woman.

To tell us more we welcome the playwright Brent Askari and Artistic Director of Barrington Stage Company Julianne Boyd.
