Barrington Stage Company Celebrates 20 Remarkable Seasons

Lisa Green reports from Pittsfield. It was like old home week at Barrington Stage’s 20 Seasons Celebration on Monday, July 7, as actors, musical theater writers and others from the theater’s past returned to take part in the performed retrospective. Artistic Director Julianne Boyd and Board Chair Mary Ann Quinson recounted the theater’s history from its start at Mt. Everett High School in Sheffield. Actors from past shows delivered a musical review from many of Barrington Stage’s outstandingly successful productions, including The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, which went on to garner two Tony Awards on Broadway, and last season’s stellar On the Town, which is headed for the Great White Way. While the performers were competing with the noisy cloudburst that seemed to hover over the building, BSC staff accomplished the Herculean feat of moving the party setup from tents across the street into the adjacent Elks Club. (If the company — felled by an epic storm during its first season — could run a box office from a pay phone, what’s a little rain during a party?) At the reception, guests mingled with actors, actors caught up with each other and all danced to tunes provided by The Wanda Houston Band. [Photo, above: Actor Mark H. Dold, Tony Award-winning director John Rando, Kiss Me, Kate’s Elizabeth Stanley and Julianne Boyd.]
