Tony Award-winner William Finn returns this weekend to host his popular showcase of new show tunes and other pop songs. With the title of Songs by Ridiculously Talented Composers and Lyricists You Probably Don’t Know, But Should…, Finn takes the Boyd-Quinson mainstage on Union Street in Pittsfield on June 10 and 11, 2016 at 8:00pm.
Directed by Brandon Ivie, the cast of singers include: Jesse Gage, Demond Green, Sara Kase, Alex Syiek, Sally Wilfert, and Emily Walton. Josh Freilich and Benji Goldsmith are music directors.
The showcase is one of the most popular annual events on the Barrington Stage Company (BSC) schedule. The award-winning theatre in Downtown Pittsfield, MA continues this tradition of giving new songwriters a showcase, a continuing tradition that has helped creative songwriters under the leadership of Artistic Director Julianne Boyd and Managing Director Tristan Wilson.
On hand to start the BSC’s Mainstage season will be two-time Tony Award-winning composer/lyricist William Finn and the next generation of talented musical theatre writers. This brilliant group of young writers will share some of their newest songs with the help of six extraordinary singers, ridiculously talented in their own right. Mr. Finn walks us through what makes these songs and songwriters stand out.
Tickets to Songs by the Ridiculously Talented Composers and Lyricists You Probably Don’t Know, But Should… are $40-$30. To purchase tickets or for more information, call the Barrington Stage Box Office at 413-236-8888 or visit www.barringtonstageco.org.
