Even though the hustle and bustle of the summer season is behind us, here in the Berkshires of western Massachusetts, great theater continues. Why not combine a little leaf peeping with an evening of live theater at Barrington Stage Company in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, just half an hour from my Hillsdale, NY bed and breakfast, the Inn at Green River. The leaves are just beginning to change!

website describes this as a “musical memoir celebrating the Golden Age of the American Musical.” The show stars Drama Desk Award winner, Jim Brochu, and salutes popular character actors and musical stars of Broadway, including Zero Mostel, Jack Gilford, Charles Nelson Riley, and Jackie Gleason. I certainly remember all these wonderful actors, do you?

The New York Times describes it as “A blend of cabaret, theater and scrapbook…walks down memory lane are rarely so entertaining.” And The New Yorker weighs in with “Brochu is a terrific storyteller, and a fine singer, too.”
