Joe Iconis and Friends Rock & Dazzle Sold Out House as Mr. Finn’s Cabaret Opens in Pittsfield [Berkshire on Stage]

On May 25 and 26, 2012 , Mr. Finn’s Cabaret opened to the public with Joe Iconis and Family as the opening act. It is located in the lower level of the new Sydelle and Lee Blatt Performing Arts Center (formerly Stage 2), 36 Linden Street, Pittsfield. It is named in honor of William Finn, artistic director of the Barrington Stage Musical Theatre Lab and the “godfather” to many of the performers who will appear there. Finn seems to be the mentor of choice for many developing musical theatre writers.

Burns and Murray were tickled to be among the few press people seated among the glitterati at the sold-out opening night on May 25, 2012. Sydelle and Lee Blatt were there and got the biggest round of applause of the evening.

For our insatiable coterie of Gail-stalkers we can report that she fearlessly wore the satin floral top that makes her look like an over-stuffed settee, with red pants, despite the advice of the Southern Berkshire Chamber of Commerce that she wear a full linen skirt and a fitted jacket.

Gail Burns: BSC Artistic Director Julianne Boyd, also stylish in red, was just beaming when we arrived. She and Bill Finn did this cabaret up right. If you are going to have an opening night, forget the fancy stuff, all you need to do is focus on what happens on stage, everything else is window dressing.

Larry Murray: Bill Finn was there, too, decked out in tasteful black. He was nearby, watching over the birth of his baby. We were even closer, so close to the singers in fact, that I was afraid if I stretched out my arms they would hand me the microphone or a tambourine.
