Theater Intelligence

Now – Nov. 5
The Last Wife
WAM Theatre presents a modern take on Katherine Parr’s marriage to Henry VII. This regional premiere by Kate Hennig is a funny, powerful examination of patriarchy, sexual politics and women’s rights. Shakespeare & Company’s Bernstein Theatre, Lenox.

Now – Nov. 5
The fun-filled, internationally popular board game comes to life on stage as the audience tries to solve a murder mystery. The Center for Performing Arts at Rhinebeck.

October 25
Actor and writer Hope Singsen will perform her one-woman play with original music, a frank and funny queer love story about transcending sexual violence. Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, 7 p.m.

November 4
The Cocktail Hour
In this work by A.R. Gurney, a playwright returns to his family’s house, bringing with him a new play in which they are his central characters. He wants their approval, but his prim parents are uncooperative from the outset. During the ritual of the cocktail hour, the martinis fly as do the criticisms and revelations. Dewey Memorial Hall, Sheffield. 1:30 p.m. & 7 p.m.

November 4
Journey to Gratitude

​In his one-man show, Berkshires-based baritone Steve Hassmer will share stories from his life and times on the stage through musical-theater soings old and new (recent credits include Sweeney Todd, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, My Fair Lady, and South Pacific at the Mac-Haydn Theater). UCC Stockbridge, 6 p.m.

November 11
Upright Citizens Brigade (UCB) Touring Company
The UCB Touring Company features the best improv comedians from the legendary UCB theaters. The 90-minute, unscripted show presents four improvisers at the top of their game in a high-energy show that’s never been seen before and won’t be seen again. (Former UCB comedians include Amy Poehler, Horatio Sanz and others.) The Colonial Theatre, Pittsfield. 8 p.m.
