    As in her first season, artistic director of the Williamstown Theatre Festival Jenny Gersten has announced there will be a total of seven productions, three on the main stage and four on the Nikos stage at this year’s festival. The performing season will run from June 26 to August 18th.

For their Summer 2013 season, the highly anticipated World Premiere of Bridges of Madison County, a new musical by Jason Robert Brown and Marsha Norman; a revival of Animal Crackers; and a Nicholas Martin-directed production of George Bernard Shaw’s classic Pygmalion.

On the smaller Nikos Stage, audiences will see revivals of Tom Stoppard’s Hapgood along with productions of Bess Wohl’s American Hero (a World Premiere) and the new musical Johnny Baseball.

The season will also see the return of many Williamstown veterans including Kate Burton (in Hapgood), and Robert Sean Leonard (in Pygmalion), plus first-time Festival directors Bartlett Sher, and Leigh Silverman.
