Joe Iconis Returns to Barrington Stage, 10/11-13
Barrington Stage Company (BSC), the award-winning theatre in downtown Pittsfield, MA, under the leadership of Julianne Boyd, Artistic Director, and TriStan Wilson, Managing Director, is proud to announce the return of award-winning songwriter Joe Iconis with his popular cabaret Joe Iconis & Family for three performances October 11- 13, at the now 99-seat Mr. Finn's Cabaret, located on the lower level of the Sydelle and Lee Blatt Performing Arts Center (formerly Stage 2), 36 Linden Street, Pittsfield. Tickets to Joe Iconis & Family are $15 and general admission. Beer, wine and soda are available.
Barrington Stage audiences will remember this summer's Musical Theatre Lab production of Joe's rock musical The Black Suits that played to popular acclaim. Joe made his BSC debut last summer with his cabaret show Hell Raisers.
Joe Iconis and his merry band – Molly Hager, Eric William Morris, Lance Rubin and audience favorite Jason "SweetTooth" Williams - return to Barrington for a second time this year for an intimate evening of Iconis tunes, both classic and brand spankin' new. Featuring sing-a-longs, three-hanky ballads, persnickety character pieces, exhilarating stompers and more. Fire up your washboard and polish your whiskey glass – this is new musical theater at its best!
Mr. Finn's Cabaret, named after William Finn, the Tony Award-winning composer of Falsettos and The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee and Artistic Producer of BSC's Musical Theatre Lab, kicked off in May this year with singer/songwriter Joe Iconis, followed by Nikos Tsakalakos, Broadway's Quentin Earl Darrington (QED: Chapter1, Verse 1) and Carmel Quinn (Carmel's Candy Store); in addition to the BSC Musical Theatre Apprentice Cabarets.
