Beryl Jolly, the executive director of Great Barrington’s Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center announced the new summer and fall additions to the organization’s 2016 schedule, including performances by Broadway stars Alan Cumming and Kelli O’Hara, best-selling author David Sedaris, legendary dance companies MOMIX and Paul Taylor Dance Company and celebrated Beatles tribute band the Fab Faux. “I am very excited by the raw talent and creative artistry that all these performers will bring to our intimate venue. The scope and breadth of artists, all among the best in their fields, will make for another beautiful and vibrant season,” said Jolly.

MUSIC

Broadway and television star Alan Cumming will headline the Mahaiwe’s 2016 gala on Monday, July 18. This special event supports the Mahaiwe’s year-round arts and education programs. He will perform his hit new concert Alan Cumming Sings Sappy Songs. Cumming is an actor and activist and, according to The New York Times, “a bawdy countercultural sprite.” Time Magazine named him one of the most fun people in show business. He plays political maverick Eli Gold on CBS-TV’s The Good Wife, for which he received Golden Globe, Emmy, SAG and Satellite award nominations. He recently finished his Tony Award-winning role of the Emcee in the Broadway musical Cabaret. GO HERE to read review of Cumming’s concert last summer in Saratoga Springs…
