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
RE-STREAM: BTU Virtual Town Hall with Sherrilyn Ifill, Audra McDonald, Wendell Pierce and LaChanze.
In lieu of Casual Fridays with David Adkins, we will be re-streaming the Black Theatre United Virtual Town Hall: “Activating Black Artists and Allies for Racial Justice” – featuring guest Sherrilyn Ifill (President of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund) and BTU founding member and moderator Audra McDonald.
Tune in to take a pause and listen to this important, insightful discussion.
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.
