Actor Randy Harrison’s yearly sojourns to the bucolic hills of Western Massachusetts are major events not only for his many fans, but also for the residents of the Berkshires. The spectacular offerings of the region’s four major producing theatres attract legions of live theatre patrons from around the nation each year.
This summer, the Berkshire Theatre Groups superb rendition of the rock opera Tommy had everyone talking. Randy Harrison played the title role with true star power. (Link to my review)
While some poor souls are still fixated on his role as Justin in the Showtime series Queer as Folk, and some even imagine that Brian (Gale Harold) is still in his life, Harrison has moved far beyond that series. He continues to pursue his one and only great love, live theatre. Those who share his passion for it are perhaps the luckiest people around.
