The Barrington Stage Company 2021 season is currently in full swing with two world premiere plays, a world premiere musical, and both indoor and outdoor productions on the upcoming schedule.
Barrington Stage Company is an award-winning, regional theater company presenting highly acclaimed stage productions in the Berkshires since 1995. The company’s multiple venues are located in downtown Pittsfield, MA just 20 minutes from our Berkshires bed and breakfast, Applegate Inn.
This year’s offerings include four indoor productions and three outdoor productions, three of which are world premieres. Tony winner Harriet Harris will grace the Barrington Stage Company stage, along with Reed Birney.
Three separate “Author! Author!” events take audiences on a journey through the theater production process with the work’s authors and directors. They’ll discuss how they went from the very first idea for the play, through to seeing it presented live on stage.
Two special events are also on tap for 2021. A Celebration of Black Voices will see a week-long celebration of local Black artists while Andy Warhol in Iran presents a staged reading of a Company commissioned play. 2021 also promises 5 outdoor music concerts, including one from 2020 Tony nominee, Elizabeth Stanley.
Indoor and Outdoor Venues, Health & Safety
Barrington Stage Company’s Boyd-Quinson Stage (34 Laurel Street, Pittsfield, MA) offers safe, socially-distanced indoor productions. Precautions include a greater distance between seats, improved air circulation, and deep cleaning after every performance. These and other safety measures have been approved by medical professionals, the Actors’ Equity Association, and the City Board of Health.
Outdoor productions are presented under a tent at the Barrington Stage Company’s Production Center (30 Union Street, Pittsfield, MA).
