David Sedaris

at The Colonial Theatre

Saturday, May 13 at 7:30pm

Tickets: $60

Berkshire Theatre Group Announces 2023 Winter & Spring Season Featuring HYPROV, David Sedaris & More

With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, bestselling author David Sedaris has become one of America's preeminent humor writers. The great skill with which he slices through cultural euphemisms and political correctness proves that Sedaris is a master of satire and one of the most observant writers addressing the human condition today.

Beloved for his personal essays and short stories, David Sedaris is the author of Barrel Fever, Holidays on Ice, Naked, Me Talk Pretty One Day, Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim, When You Are Engulfed in Flames, Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls, and Calypso, which was a Washington Post Best Book of the Year. He is the author of Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary, a collection of fables with illustrations by Ian Falconer. He is also the author of an essay length ebook titled Themes and Variations. Each of these books was an immediate bestseller. He was also the editor of Children Playing Before a Statue of Hercules: An Anthology of Outstanding Stories. His pieces regularly appear in The New Yorker and have twice been included in "The Best American Essays." The first volume of his diaries Theft By Finding: Diaries (1977-2002) was a New York Times best-selling book. As a companion piece to the book, Jeffrey Jenkins published and edited an art book of Sedaris's diary covers, entitled David Sedaris Diaries: A Visual Compendium. His book, The Best of Me, is a collection of 42 previously published stories and essays, about which novelist Andrew Sean Greer wrote in the New York Times: "You must read 'The Best of Me'. It will be a new experience, knowing that enough time has passed to find humor in the hardest parts of life. More than ever-we're allowed to laugh." The second volume of his diaries, A Carnival of Snackery, Diaries (2003-2020), was also a New York Times bestseller and the audiobook was selected as part of Apple's Best Audiobooks of the Year for 2021. His new book, Happy-Go-Lucky, debuted at number one on the New York Times best-seller list.

Sedaris and his sister, Amy Sedaris, have collaborated under the name "The Talent Family" and have written half dozen plays which have been produced at La Mama, Lincoln Center, and The Drama Department in New York City. These plays include Stump the Host, Stitches, One Woman Shoe, which received an Obie Award, Incident at Cobbler's Knob, and The Book of Liz, which was published in book form by Dramatists Play Service.

Sedaris has been nominated for five Grammy Awards for Best Spoken Word and Best Comedy Album. His audio recordings include "David Sedaris: Live for Your Listening Pleasure" and "David Sedaris Live at Carnegie Hall." A feature film adaptation of his story C.O.G. was released after a premiere at the Sundance Film Festival (2013). Since 2011, he can be heard annually on a series of live recordings on BBC Radio 4 entitled "Meet David Sedaris." In 2019 David Sedaris became a regular contributor to CBS Sunday Morning, and his Masterclass, David Sedaris Teaches Storytelling and Humor, was released.

There are over 16 million copies of his books in print, and they have been translated into 32 languages. He has been awarded the Terry Southern Prize for Humor, Thurber Prize for American Humor, Jonathan Swift International Literature Prize for Satire and Humor, Time 2001 Humorist of the Year Award, as well as the Medal for Spoken Language from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. In March 2019 he was elected as a member into the American Academy of Arts and Letters. In 2020 the New York Public Library voted Me Talk Pretty One Day one of the 125 most important books of the last 125 years.

Berkshire Theatre Group Announces 2023 Winter & Spring Season Featuring HYPROV, David Sedaris & More

Draw The Line celebrates more than 25 years of paying homage to rock 'n' roll legends Aerosmith-the "Bad Boys of Boston." They are the only officially endorsed Aerosmith tribute show in the world. With support and accolades from Aerosmith themselves, as well as journalists, top DJs and fans worldwide, Draw The Line is recognized as a one-of-a-kind tribute show.

Combining the same blues-based, hard rock sounds of Aerosmith, Draw The Line performs classic hits like "Walk this Way," "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing," "Dream On" and many others with stunning accuracy. Not only do they sound like Aerosmith, but they also look the part. Lead singer, Neill Byrnes, won a Steven Tyler look-alike contest on WAAF Radio in Worcester in the 1990s. Since then, Draw The Line has become a world-renowned tribute show, touring throughout North America, Europe, South America and across the globe. In fact, Byrnes has been cast to portray Steven Tyler in several productions.

Berkshire Theatre Group Announces 2023 Winter & Spring Season Featuring HYPROV, David Sedaris & More

Tapestry, the Carole King Songbook, featuring Suzanne O. Davis is the premier musical tribute to Carole King. This show recreates the sound and vibe of a 1970s Carole King concert experience following her legendary album, Tapestry. Not only will the audience be transported back to the iconic image of her multiple Grammy Award-winning album of 1971, but also the concert performance will bring to life many hits from the Broadway musical smash, Beautiful.

In addition to featuring all the music from Tapestry, the show will also feature many songs that Carole King and her husband, Gerry Goffin, wrote in the 1960s as one of the most successful songwriting teams in pop music history. The more than 400 songs were recorded by over 1,000 artists, including The Drifters, The Beatles, Herman's Hermits, Donnie Osmond, Aretha Franklin, The Shirelles, Bobby Vee and many more.

Suzanne's performance will take audiences on a journey back to those great recordings with stories about the music, history of Carole King's incredible career and a fun, sing-along audience interactive experience.

The Ivy League of Comedy Show

at The Colonial Theatre

Tickets: $25

Berkshire Theatre Group Announces 2023 Winter & Spring Season Featuring HYPROV, David Sedaris & More

Known for their elite brand of clever comedy, the members of The Ivy League of Comedy can be seen on late-night TV, Comedy Central and now on stage at the Colonial. This hilarious comedy show features original, well-written comedy that doesn't resort to playing on stereotypes or picking on the audience. This is stand-up comedy's funniest and brightest!

Andy Pitz

Andy's unique brand of comedy has landed him multiple appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. Andy is a regular performer at all of New York City's top comedy clubs, including Gotham Comedy Club and Caroline's & Comic Strip Live. He also tours the country and abroad when his wife will allow it.

Kerri Louise

High-energy, commanding and versatile, Kerri Louise can entertain any audience with her warmth and razor-edge wit. So it's no wonder that Kerri was a regular correspondent on the Oprah Winfrey Show. NBC took Kerri all the way to the finals in the show Last Comic Standing. Her performance on that show prompted The Women's Entertainment Network to make her the star of their new reality show called Two Funny. Kerri's guest appearances include NickMom Night Out, Comics Unleashed, The Montel Show, The Fine Living Channel, Access Hollywood, The Apprentice, The View, Comedy Central, VH1, 20/20 and New Joke City. These credits plus her appearances in Marie Claire, the HBO Aspen Comedy Festival and the Montreal Comedy Festival have made Kerri a comic attraction on her own.

Shaun Eli

Stand-up comedian Shaun Eli has rightfully been called one of America's smartest comics. Whether it's a story about dining with a vegetarian or successfully fighting a parking ticket in criminal court, master storyteller Shaun Eli shows you that there's hilarity in the ordinary if you approach life with a comedic warp. Job interviews? How about the Ten Commandments? For just about anything he's experienced, he has hilarious stories at the ready. With a sense of humor that's both cheerful and universal, Shaun has headlined shows on five continents. In 2021 he was the recipient of a major profile in The New York Times.

The Young Dubliners
With special guest Kilashandra

at The Colonial Theatre

Friday, March 17 at 7:30pm

Tickets: $50

Berkshire Theatre Group Announces 2023 Winter & Spring Season Featuring HYPROV, David Sedaris & More

Come celebrate St. Patrick's Day at the Colonial with The Young Dubliners, an American rock band who have been recording albums and touring since 1993 and whose style of music has come to be called Celtic Rock for the fusion of Irish traditional music with modern rock 'n' roll!

Band members Keith Roberts (vocals, guitar), Chas Waltz (violin, keys, vocals), Justin Pecot (guitar, vocals), Dave Ingraham (drums) and Ethan Jones (bass guitar) caution that they are more than just traditional Celtic Rock. The Irish influence is certainly there, but it's not the only influence that bursts through on their albums or live shows. After all, several of the band members have no Irish roots of any kind. "That was always the idea," explains Roberts "the sound was intended to be a hybrid because we all come from different backgrounds. Even though I am from Ireland, a lot of the music I listened to growing up wasn't Irish at all, but when I got here, I got homesick and developed a new appreciation for Irish music. In truth the Celtic riffs can just as easily come from the American band members. Everyone writes now, so you never know what you'll end up with."

"Their sound defies categorization. The Young Dubliners can be seen as Ireland's answer to Los Lobos, with a similar combination of traditional folk music, raucous electric rock, and forward-thinking experimentation." -Allmusic.com

Kilashandra

Kilashandra is an award-winning Albany, NY-based band. They began meeting in fall 2021 as a group of friends getting together to play Celtic music in pubs and at regional Irish Festivals. Quickly, they became a known entity in the Irish music world as well as the Americana/Blues/Jam Band Circuit.

Founded by Chris Gil, Kilashandra from the start has been a search and love for the soulful and passionate music of the British Isles and their Celtic ancestors. Kilashandra performances are gatherings of friends, shared experiences that ignite an ancient resonance of souls amongst kindred spirits that spans all ages and walks of life. The playing is technically brilliant, but it is the soulful, passionate and innovative arrangements, thrilling vocals, intricately woven harmonies, soaring guitar and lyrical virtuosic fiddling that will transport listeners to another place and time.

Tom Rush

Accompanied by Matt Nakoa

at The Colonial Theatre

Sunday, May 21 at 2pm

Tickets: $50

Berkshire Theatre Group Announces 2023 Winter & Spring Season Featuring HYPROV, David Sedaris & More

Tom Rush's impact on the American music scene has been profound. He helped shape the folk revival in the '60s, the folk-rock movement of the '70s, and then the renaissance of the '80s and '90s. James Taylor, Emmylou Harris, Tom Petty and Garth Brooks have cited Tom as a major influence. Rush displayed then, as he does today, an uncanny knack for finding wonderful songs and writing his own. His distinctive guitar style, wry humor and warm, expressive voice have made him both a legend and a lure to audiences around the world. His shows are filled with the rib-aching laughter of terrific story-telling, the sweet melancholy of ballads and the passion of gritty blues.

As vital and engaging as ever, his voice has grown even richer and more melodic, and his music, like a fine wine, has matured and ripened in the blending of traditional and modern influences
