Berkshire Actor’s Theatre to Perform Double Bill in Repertory at Berkshire Museum [Berkshire on Stage]
The growth of theatre in the Berkshires continues to amaze, and you might think the market is saturated, what with four professional companies in the area, and another four just across the border in New York and Vermont.
But the Berkshire Actor’s Theatre (BAT) is shifting the balance of theatre in the Berkshires, adding more choice to the mix.
They attract a younger demographic of course, but the baby boomers love this company too. They simply refuse to stay put and watch television. They are in search of real ideas, real fun and laughs, not to mention a little socializing. Being a couch potato and tuning out incessant commercials is a poor choice when stacked up with real actors so close you can almost reach out and touch them. There’s still no app for that yet, either, is there? Theatre is the one place where everyone turns off their smart phones and becomes part of the human race again.
