Theater Intelligence

Now – Oct. 22
Tangent Theatre presents an exploration of a couple’s journey through life, as it relates to the concept of a “multi-verse” — that we exist in multiple planes with different destinies and outcomes. Carpenter Shop Theater, Tivoli.

Now – Oct. 22
Lost Lake
Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning playwright David Auburn’s engrossing play is part drama, part melancholy comedy. It follows the story of imperfect strangers tangled up in each other’s lives by circumstance. Veronica takes her children to a lakeside rental, a less-than-ideal property that also includes Hogan, a bedraggled estate owner. Berkshire Theatre Group’s Unicorn Stage, Stockbridge.

Now – Oct. 22
A suavely handsome man is slowly driving his wife to the brink of insanity by sowing seeds of doubt, memory loss and misperceptions. Barrington Stage Company’s Boyd-Quinson Mainstage, Pittsfield. Panel Discussion on Gaslighting or Psychological Bullying: Oct. 15 at 1 p.m. at the Wolfson Center.

Now – Oct. 22
Greater Tuna
In this hilarious sendup of small town morals and mores, two actors (Don Dolan and Kevin Kilb) portray over 20 characters – men, women, children and animals – all wacky citizens of Tuna, Texas’ third smallest town. The Ghent Playhouse.

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.

October 19
Comedian Morgan Miller
The $5 Comedy Garage at The Colonial Theatre presents Morgan Miller, a New York-based comedian who performs stand-up, sketch and improv comedy with Upright Citizens Brigade (UCB). Pittsfield, 7:30 p.m.

October 21

Emmy Award-nominated actress/comedian and SNL alum Janeane Garofalo has appeared in the films The Truth About Cats and Dogs, Wet Hot American Summer, Ratatouille, Reality Bites, and Romy and Michelle’s High School Reunion. The Colonial Theatre in Pittsfield, 8 p.m.

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 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.
