Barrington Stage Co. Announces 2018 Season With Three World Premieres [Berkshire on Stage]
Barrington Stage Company, the award-winning Pittsfield theater, has announced its 2018 season, which will feature three world premieres, including a major new musical from Tony Award winners William Finn and Rachel Sheinkin, a new play from Off Broadway Alliance Award winner Lloyd Suh and the first major production of a work from an exciting young playwright, Rachel Lynett.
“This is the year of women’s stories at BSC,” said Artistic Director Julianne Boyd. “Whether it’s three generations of women whose entire lives are defined by that fabulous invalid, the theater (The Royal Family of Broadway); or a woman who walked out on her family 15 years earlier and makes an unexpected visit home (A Doll’s House, Part 2); or a baker who struggles to find her voice in a changing world (The Cake); or the first female Chinese immigrant to enter the United States (The Chinese Lady); or an African-American woman who is called upon to be the face of her race by her well-meaning friends (Well-Intentioned White People) – these are stories we want to share with our audiences now.”
