One Night Only With Barrington Stage Company

Rachel Louchen reports from Pittsfield. For the 21st year, Barrington Stage Company celebrated its season-opening gala with a show, party, and excitement for the summer ahead. On Saturday, June 25, the evening started fittingly with BSC founder/artistic director Julianne Boyd and board chair Mary Ann Quinson addressing the crowd of “longtime, faithful supporters” from the Boyd-Quinson Mainstage. They then introduced Tony Yazbeck, current star of Broadway’s Finding Neverland for a hour-long performance, The Floor Above Me, which traced his career, life and loves through song and tap dancing. Yazbeck, who starred in BSC’s 2012 production of On The Town, spoke of his time at the company, zeroing in the expert crew and strong community spirit. Post song and dance, guests crossed North Street en mass to the Boys & Girls Club of Berkshires for cocktails and a chance to bid on auction items before a sit-down dinner.
