With the opening of Lungs, the Berkshire Summer Theatre Season has begun, and Duncan MacMillan’s play is yet another new and groundbreaking foray into contemporary theatre that shows that theatre is still best when it explores the human condition. We previewed Lungs here a couple of weeks ago, and this week will publish the Burns and Murray take on it.
Following the Sunday opening of Lungs, we spoke with David Sernick who has made some pretty creative and informative videos for Barrington Stage and found out he was in the final editing stages of the fascinating interview with director Aaron Posner, complete with some clips of the show. It needs no further introduction, it is well worth watching and gives you a real sense of this wonderful new play and its two actors, Brooke Bloom and Ryan King.
