Vilkomen, bien venue, welcome to the Kit Kat Club — where a Bohemian crowd of writers and musicians experiences Berlin in the 1930s — and the rise of fascism.

John Kander & Fred Ebb’s Tony Award-winning musical Cabaret, based on a novel and stories by Christopher Isherwood, will open the Boyd-Quinson Stage season. The show will bring together Krysta Rodriguez (NBC’s “Smash,” Broadway’s Into the Woods revival, The Collaboration, Deaf West Theatre’s Spring Awakening) as Sally Bowles, Nik Alexander (Broadway: Ain’t No Mo’, Motown the Musical; Hamilton 2nd National Tour) takes the stage as the Emcee and Dan Amboyer (“Younger,” “Uncoupled,” “William & Katherine: A Royal Romance”) as Cliff Bradshaw.

The new production is directed by BSC Artistic Director Alan Paul, musical direction by Angela Steiner and choreography by Katie Spelman. (The award-winning musical has a book by Joe Masteroff based on the play by John Van Druten.) The play will run June 14 to July 8 on the Mainstage.

Reflections on Antisemitism and the Cautionary Tale of Cabaret — June 29 at 10 a.m. on the Boyd-Quinson Stage

Join a free discussion with Jewish thought leaders on the relevance of art and theatre in promoting understanding and combating antisemitism. This partnership with the Jewish Federation of the Berkshires will feature a panel including Alan Paul (BSC Artistic Director), Dr. Barbara Waldinger (Ph.D. Theatre, CUNY Graduate Center) and Roselle Chartock (author and artist, Professor Emerita of Education), moderated by Jeffrey Robins (former US Delegate to the UN Human Rights Commission). Come early for coffee and a nosh!

The morning opens with a coffee and bagel reception at 10 a.m., and the panel begins at 10:45.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
