Never been to this theater before, but they are doing Romance in Hard Times in August.

I'm definitely going to make the trip to see this.

How is the theater? How is the quality of the performances?

They do excellent work there, Taz. They did a production of Follies there a few years ago that almost transferred to BWay. Look at the cast they had for it. You don't attract a cast like that if you don't have a rep for good work. Of course in theatre, everything's a crap shoot.

Speaking of crapshoots, they also did a stellar Guys and Folls starring. Leslie Kritzer as Adelaide, Matt Risch as Sky, Tommy Bracco from newsies as one of the dancers with a set by the wonderful Alexander Dodge and choreography by the incredible Josh Bergasse :)

And they did the On the Town last summer that may be coming to Broadway.

It was the most perfect production that musical could ever hope to have.

They constantly send their work to New York, and are a top regional theatre, perhaps the best in the Berkshires. They just announced their new summer season and Berkshire on Stage dissects it nicely. http://wp.me/pT8Qm-9Je
