Barrington Stage Company will host its Annual Summer Gala with a special performance by Tony Award winner Laura Benanti in Tales from Soprano Isle on July 23 at the Boyd-Quinson Mainstage.

"We are thrilled that the highly acclaimed actress, singer and comedienne​ Laura Benanti will bring her tremendous talent to Barrington Stage​," said artistic director Julianne Boyd in a statement.​ "She is the perfect choice for an evening of summer fun!"

All proceeds from the BSC Gala support BSC's threefold mission: to produce top-notch, compelling work; to develop new plays and musicals; and to find fresh, bold ways of bringing new audiences into the theater, especially young people.

Benanti was most recently seen in Steve Martin's Meteor Shower on Broadway, opposite Amy Schumer, and ​has ​earned​ rave reviews for her frequent and hilarious portrayals of Melania Trump on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. She has also starred in acclaimed productions of Gypsy, She Loves Me, and many more.
