Rehearsals for Barrington Stage's THE OTHER PLACE with Marg Helgenberger Begin Tomorrow

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, presents the Berkshire premiere of Sharr White's The Other Place, starring Emmy Award-winner and Golden Globe nominee Marg Helgenberger.

Directed by BSC Associate Artist Christopher Innvar, The Other Place runs from May 21 through June 14 on the St. Germain Stage. Making their BSC debuts opposite Marg Helgenberger are Katya Campbell (Woman), Adam Donshik (Man), and Brent Langdon (Ian).

In The Other Place, Juliana Smithton (Helgenberger) is a successful neurologist whose life seems to be coming unhinged. Her husband has filed for divorce, her daughter has eloped with a much older man, and her own health is in jeopardy. But in this brilliantly crafted work, nothing is as it seems. Piece by piece, a mystery unfolds as fact blurs with fiction, past collides with present, and the elusive truth about Juliana boils to the surface.

The Other Place has scenic design by Brian Prather, costume design by Krissy Sneshkoff, lighting design by Scott Pinkney, and original music and sound design by Anthony Mattana. Michael Andrew Rodgers is production stage manager.

Currently featured in the new CBS TV series, Intelligence, Marg Helgenberger is best known for her role as Catherine Willows in CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. She won an Emmy for her break-out role of K.C., a hard-bitten prostitute who catered to Vietnam War soldiers, in the series China Beach. She also was George Clooney's love interest in a multi-episode arc of the TV series ER. Marg starred as Patsy Ramsey in the highly rated CBS miniseries, Perfect Murder, Perfect Town based on the best-selling book about the unsolved murder of Jon Benet Ramsey. She played opposite Julia Roberts as a chemical exposure victim in the award-winning movie Erin Brockovich, and has also appeared in Tootsie, Steven Spielberg's Always,Species, and In Good Company.

Sharr White's The Other Place received its world premiere Off-Broadway at MCC Theatre, and subsequently received its Broadway premiere at Manhattan Theatre Club with Joe Mantello directing and starring Laurie Metcalf. Sharr White's other plays include Annapurna, Sunlight, Six Years, andAchilles in Sparta.
