Be Here Now: “Zero Hour” Extended, “Avalanche” Survives @ Barrington Stage Company, Pittsfield [Berkshire On Stage]
As Barrington Stage Company’s (BSC) production of “Zero Hour” concludes the second week of its three week run, the word of mouth has gotten a bit out of hand. It seems that those who see this one-man show that recreates the life and times of legendary actor Zero Mostel are telling their neighbors and friends about it in glowing terms. This has set off an avalanche of phone calls for tickets at the BSC box office. With just the final weekend remaining, there are not nearly enough tickets to go around.
So what’s a theatre to do but revise their tightly planned schedules in order to find some additional playing time that will keep everyone happy.
