The Berkshires are heating up with anticipation as spring approaches and so many dance and theater companies announce their schedules. Shakespeare & Company’s recently announced 2015 season schedule is just the latest in a series of such previews. Are you ready?
The Berkshires’ stage is always alive with music, dance, drama, comedy, and more. Shakespeare & Company in Lenox, MA does more than their fair share to maintain the Berkshires’ stage as the cultural institution it is.
The recently announced 2015 season for Shakespeare & Company is filled with goodies for fans of the Bard and his peers. There are three Shakespeare plays in the works – “Henry V,” “The Comedy of Errors,” and “Hamlet” – along with the Regional Premiere of “Red Velvet” by Lolita Chakrabarti, the World Premiere of Jane Anderson’s “Mother of the Maid,” and the premiere of new works, such as “The How and the Why,” by Sarah Treem.
