The Williamstown Theater Festival will offer an especially star-studded season in the Berkshires this summer. It has just been announced that Charlotte d'Amboise, Kate Burton, Tim Daly, Terrence Mann, Andrea Martin, Joe Morton, Debra Monk, Martha Plimpton, Billy Porter, Roger Rees, Dana Reeve, Marisa Tomei, Scott Wolf, Carol Woods, and Betty Buckley will appear in the festival's late night Cabaret & Main series; among those already slated to perform are James Naughton, Christopher Fitzgerald, and Bill Irwin. The Daily Show's cantankerous funnyman Lewis Black will leave Jon Stewart's side to host the three-week series.

Notable additions to the casts of Williamstown's full-scale, main stage productions have also been announced. Michael C. Hall of HBO's Six Feet Under will join Audra McDonald, Tom Wopat, and Mary Testa in R Shomon, the world premiere production of a new musical by Michael John LaChiusa. Marisa Tomei will join Steven Weber and Campbell Scott in Noël Coward's Design for Living. Bobby Cannavale, who recently performed at the Public Theater in Suzan-Lori Parks's Fuckin' A, will join Debra Monk, Boyd Gaines, and Marian Seldes in Dedication or The Stuff of Dreams.

The festival's box office, located at the Adams Memorial Theatre in Williamstown, Massachusetts, will open on June 15 at 11am. Beginning on that date, tickets may be purchased by phoning 413-597-3400.
