The Tony Award-nominated musical that made Judy Holliday a star, Bells Are Ringing is a classic comedy with a sweet heart.
Written by seven-time Tony Award-winners Betty Comden and Adolph Green, Bells Are Ringing was originally directed by five-time Tony Award-winner Jerome Robbins and choreographed by Robbins and eight-time Tony Award-winner Bob Fosse.
The fetching and farcical love story includes notable show tunes, "Long Before I Knew You," "Just in Time," and "The Party's Over."
Bells are Ringing is currently running at The Colonial in Pittsfield, MA as part of The Berkshire Theatre Group’s summer season.
Telephone service operator, Ella Peterson, played by Tony Award-nominated Kate Baldwin is not your typical phone operator. Using a variety of comical personae’s, Ella meddles with her clients’ lives as she takes and delivers their phone messages. Ella’s busybody ways trigger trouble when she falls for one of her customers, Jeff Moss, played by Kate Baldwin’s real life husband, Broadway and television actor, Graham Rowat. The show is directed by BTG Alum, Ethan Heard.
