On Monday, July 23, Melania Trump was in town to sing her version of “Send in the Clowns” for supporters of Barrington Stage Company. The singer was actually her lookalike, Tony Award-winning star Laura Benanti, who has gained additional fame for her dead-on appearances as the First Lady on “Late Night with Stephen Colbert.” Following Benanti’s performance, “Tales from Soprano Isle,” guests moved into a blessedly air-conditioned tent for dinner, a live auction and dancing. The annual gala raises funds to support Barrington Stage’s Playwright Mentoring Project and its New Works Initiative.
