New Leadership, Fresh Approach as Adirondack Theatre Festival Unveils Daring 21st Season [Berkshire on Stage]
By Larry Murray
There’s a wonderful summer ahead for those who live in the Glens Falls/Lake George area as the Adirondack Theatre Festival’s new producing artistic director Chad Rabinovitz lays out his inaugural season for this fine company. Frankly, it’s a stunningly ambitious and diverse array of shows that he is planning. Berkshire on Stage has plans to preview and/or review several of them. You know how you sometimes get the feeling of something special in the air? Its siren call is clearly at work here.
As the new guy, Rabinovitz emphasized that he will continue the vital and longstanding mission of ATF to champion the presentation of new and contemporary works. Says Rabinovitz: “The company will continue to focus on the development and production of new works, offering experiences that cannot be found anywhere else in the world – only in Glens Falls. With a team of top-level professional artists, ATF’s 21st season will be entirely new plays and musicals.” While our whole region is known for its ground-breaking work in these areas, Glens Falls might be added to Pittsfield and Williamstown as cities where Broadway producers scour the boonies for new shows. The ATF season will run from June 23–August 7 at the Charles R. Wood Theater in Glens Falls.
