Celebrating “Three Hotels” at Williamstown Theatre Festival

Rural Intelligence Parties and OpeningsThe spirit of the Williamstown Theatre Festival (WTF) is best expressed on its opening night: The entire audience is always invited to the post-performance party along with the scores of young apprentices who are spending their summer honing their theatre skills under the tutelage of Broadway veterans. On Thursday, June 30,  the mood was giddy under the tents erected on the lawn of the 62 Center for Theatre and Dance where Mezze Catering served sparkling wine, beer and cupcakes following an exquisitely provocative revival of Jon Robin Baitz’s Three Hotels, the story of a former Peace Corps worker who loses his soul, along with his wife and son, by climbing the corporate ladder at a multinational company that pushes baby formula on women who don’t need it in the Third World. WTF is justifiably famous for its commitment to all the theatre arts, and the sets for Three Hotels were especially magnificent and watching the scene changes was sheer delight.
