Urban Renewal! Williamstown Theatre Festival’s NYC Benefit

Rural Intelligence Parties and OpeningsIt wasn’t surprising that many of the Williamstown Theatre Festival‘s hometown trustees made the trek from the Berkshires to New York City for the company’s fall benefit at the baroque Prince George Ballroom (left) on November 16.  What was surprising—and gratifying—was to see Nancy Thomas and a crew from Mezze Catering, who made the journey from Williamstown to Manhattan to provide dinner for the 260 guests with a menu featuring foodstuffs from High Lawn Farm, Maplebrook Farm, Mighty Food Farm, and Peace Valley Farm.  Honoring Tom Fontana, a writer and producer who got his start at Williamstown, the evening featured heartfelt toasts,  songs by WTF stalwarts Kate Burton and Katie Finneran,  and a star-turn by WTF’s new general manager, Joe Finnegan, as the evening’s auctioneer.
