Colonial Theatre

"A Christmas Carol" at BTG - 2016
Emma Kate Rothenberg-Ware

It is an absolute Christmas Classic. And at the Colonial Theatre in Pittsfield – it is tradition.

It is the timeless holiday tradition of A Christmas Carol with the whole family, and revel in the joy and redemptive power of Christmas as told in the tale of Ebenezer Scrooge, the infamous miser who is shown the error of his ways and reformed by four spirits.

We are able to journey back to Victorian England and experience the classic story filled with holiday carols and the wonderment of the season.

Joining us – like ghosts in the night – Berkshire Theatre Group Artistic Director and CEO Kate Maguire, Travis Daly – director of the show and Scrooge himself – Eric Hill. 

  Singer-songwriter and pianist Marc Cohn burst onto the scene in 1991 on the heels of "Walking In Memphis," one of the most resonant songs to make the Top 40 in the last twenty years. The Best New Artist Grammy for 1991 soon followed.

Cohn's short-story songwriting style is heavily influenced by Van Morrison, Joni Mitchell and Jackson Browne, and he is often named among the most personal and introspective lyricists of his generation. 

He will perform at The Colonial in Pittsfield, MA on Thursday, February 25th.

Herbert Wolff Reviews "A Little Night Music"

Jul 12, 2014

For those fortunate enough to see it, the Berkshire Theatre Group production of A Little Night Music will likely be the highlight of the 2014 summer season. A Little Night Music – along with possessing a superbly written story based on an Ingmar Bergman movie, Smiles of a Summer Night – has music and lyrics by the incomparable Stephen Sondheim and book by his late collaborator, Hugh Wheeler. In addition to its pedigree, this current presentation has a cast that could open next week on Broadway.
