From our News Desk: Let the snows fly, they don’t bother residents of the Berkshires since visions of summer shows and wonderful theatrical stars performing at the 2012 Williamstown Theatre Festival are dancing in their heads. Good news has arrived.
Jenny Gersten announced today the first two of her Main Stage and Nikos Stage productions for the 2012 Williamstown Theatre Festival (WTF) season, the Festival’s 58th Season and second under Ms. Gersten’s leadership. A new style “Preview Production” format will be used for the first time for Far From Heaven, a new musical which has a book by Richard Greenberg (Take Me Out), an original score by Scott Frankel and Michael Korie (Grey Gardens) and directed by Michael Greif (Rent; WTF’s Three Sisters).
It is based on the Oscar naminated film which chronicled the story of a 1950s housewife who discovers her husband is gay. Julianne Moore starred opposite Dennis Quaid, Dennis Haysbert and Patricia Clarkson in the film.
