The theatre is a place to reflect on what it means to be human.
We look forward to opening our theatres outside this summer with Godspell under the tent at the Colonial

Casual Fridays with David Adkins

Episode #6: it’s couples therapy!

This week it’s couples therapy! Being in the arts is always… a challenge. But try doing it as a couple. Then add a little corona virus with homeschooling and a splash of unemployment and it’s an 80 proof cocktail. Bottoms up!
But never fear!
Dr. Dave is in the house!
(Yes, I just mixed metaphors.)
Our special guest couples this week are BTG favorites James Barry (As director: Working, Million Dollar Quartet, and as actor: The Caretaker, The Who’s Tommy) and Tara Franklin (At Home at the Zoo, Naked, The Homecoming) with yours truly, David Adkins and his one and only, Corinna May (Benefactors, Homestead Crossing, Two-headed).
Please mix it up with us as we compare notes about the joys of life in quarantine, then add in our favorite arguments, a little ice to cool things off, then a dash of loving moments and a pinch of life in the theater… I mean… ummm, a pinch of life while waiting for theater, then shake – don’t stir… and you have… well you get the idea.
It will be fun!

David Adkins talks to Berkshire Theatre Group actors, directors, designers and other friends of the theater about life – life in the arts, life during Covid19, hopes, dreams, and who knows what! Getting to the heart of the matter, and keeping us all connected while we’re apart – one artist at a time.

David has performed in over 30 productions at BTG including the goat, the petrified forest, and the zoo story. On TV David has most recently appeared as Senator Chet Wagner from Alabama on Madam Secretary. Other television includes the blacklist, homeland, the Americans, the good wife and others.

Age group: College and up.

In a Boston Globe article by Don Aucoin on Covid‑19, Artistic Director Kate Maguire said:
"Out of need will come the way. Once the pandemic ebbs, whenever that is, there will be an incredible need to gather again." The theatre has existed from the time of the Greeks. We will go on.
