Williamstown Theatre Festival Summer Preview in Lenox

Rural Intelligence Parties and OpeningsLast Thursday in Lenox, the kids put on a show in the barn. But what kids! What a barn!  With a new, effervescent artistic director, Jenny Gersten (left with general manager Joe Finnegan) the storied Williamstown Theatre Festival is trying to woo residents of southern Berkshire County (and adjacent counties, too) to make more frequent visits to Williamstown this summer. So WTF brought in six young actors (several WTF alums from last summer who’d recently made their Broadway debuts) to sing tunes from the previous and upcoming seasons. The hosts were Tom and Suky Werman, the owners of the sublimely enchanting Stonover Farm near Tanglewood, which has one of the most beautifully restored (and acoustically kind)  barns in the Berkshires. And Mezze Catering provided the irresistible buffet of addictive, international “street food.”
