About Barrington Stage Company
Barrington Stage Company is the fastest growing arts venue in Berkshire County, attracting more than 58,500 patrons each year. BSC continues to gain national recognition for its superior quality productions and comprehensive educational programming.
Barrington Stage has produced several award-winning plays and musicals, beginning in its inaugural year with The Diary of Anne Frank, which won the Elliot Norton/Boston Theatre Critics Award. In its third year, BSC won two Elliot Norton/Boston Theatre Critics Awards and four Outer Critics Awards for its smash hit production of Cabaret, which moved to Boston and played an extended run at the Hasty Pudding Theatre. Several other BSC productions, including Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill; Mack and Mabel; The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee; Follies; West Side Story; Freud’s Last Session; Sweeney Todd; Best of Enemies; Breaking the Code and On the Town have been named among the top 10 productions of the year in many area newspapers — leading The Boston Globe to laud BSC as “one of the jewels in the state’s crown.”
In 2016 Barrington Stage won 20 out of 25 Berkshire Theatre Awards, the first annual theatre awards in Berkshire County, with the majority of the awards going to Barrington’s productions of American Son, The Pirates of Penzance and Broadway Bounty Hunter.
