The historic and Tony Award-Winning Williamstown Theatre Festival revealed its plans for the Summer of 2013 at a news briefing at the Williams Inn today. Following the same format that Artistic Director Jennie Gersten introduced last year, there will be three Main Stage productions and four on the smaller and more intimate Nikos Stage.
Following is the official announcement, with some additional commentary on the upcoming season by Gail and Larry following each show’s synopsis.
The schedule was announced by Eric Kerns, the company’s director of marketing and development filling in for Jennie Gersten who was indisposed with the flu.
He noted that this year there would be three musicals, a major undertaking, and three plays with a world premiere in each category. A seventh production will be announced at a later date, since final details – involving well known names in the business – are still being finalized.
