The annual Panto at the Ghent Playhouse opens November 29
At the mid-point in the summer season we are witnessing odd phenomena in theater scheduling.
First there was a week when every musical or play had a major gay character front and center. This past week everything has been in a single act, straight play or musical.
Who knows what peculiar items await.
Well, there is "The Visit" which just opened and has the most peculiar plot for a musical, ever - it even makes "Sweeney Todd" seem tame. Soon we'll have "The Addams Family" and the nudity in the round of "The Full Monty" at the Mac-Haydn Theatre.
A lot of other wonders are heading for the regional boards including the second production this summer of Christopher Durang's family comedy "Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike" at Shakespeare and Company. Up in Weston, Vermont where the show has already been done this season they will be opening Chekhov's' "Uncle Vanya" soon.
Keep in touch and discover what else is coming. Updates to follow.

POE at Berkshire Theatre Group

KEEP YOUR EYES ON US...
and there'll be much, much more
