Photo Coverage: Inside Opening Night of Barrington Stage Company's BREAKING THE CODE
Last night, Barrington Stage Company (BSC), the award-winning theatre in Downtown Pittsfield, MA, under the leadership of Artistic Director Julianne Boyd and Managing Director Tristan Wilson, presented Breaking the Code, Hugh Whitemore's biographical drama of Alan Turing, starring BSC Associate Artist Mark H. Dold. Directed by Joe Calarco, performances of Breaking the Code are from today, July 17 through August 2, with a press opening on Sunday, July 20 at 5pm. Broadwayworld was there for the opening.
Breaking the Code is the true story of the famed mathematician and computer science pioneer Alan Turing, the primary designer of the Turing Machine, an early computer used to solve the German Enigma code during World War II. Many believed the Turing Machine was instrumental in the Allied victory. The title refers to both the solution of the Enigma code and Turing's open admission to his homosexuality, which at the time violated not only the codes of polite society but also British law.
Also featured in the cast are: Jefferson Farber (Ron Miller), Kyle Fabel (Mick Ross), Deborah Hedwell (Sara Turing), Annie Meisels (Pat Green), Mike Donovan (Christopher Morcom/Nikos),John Leonard Thompson (John Smith), and Phillip Kerr (Dillwyn Knox).
The production is designed by Brian Prather (sets), Jennifer Caprio (costumes), Chris Lee (lighting), and Lindsay Jones (sound). Michael Andrew Rogers is production stage manager.
