High School Musical, West Side Story, et al. to Be Part of Barrington Stage Company's 2007 Season
The Pittsfield, Massachusetts-based company will begin its season with Becky Mode's solo show Fully Committed, about a harried restaurant employee, February 7-18 at the Berkshire Museum. Next up, at a venue still to be announced, will be Jeffrey Hatcher's two-hander A Picasso, about an art expert recruited by the Nazis for a nefarious task.
The next three shows will be presented at Barrington's mainstage space at 30 Union Street: West Side Story, the beloved Leonard Bernstein-Stephen Sondheim-Arthur Laurents musical (June 13-July 14); Peter Shaffer's Black Comedy (July 19-August 4); and Anton Chekhov's Uncle Vanya (August 9-26). In addition, the company will present the stage version of Disney's High School Musical, based on the top-rated television movie, at the First Christ Church of Pittsfield (July 11-August 12).
