That's a bonus for those of us in the Capital District.
No more than a scant hour's drive away, the Berkshires offer a magical array of artistic delights. We locals have known for years what treasure trove of artistic delights lay nestled in the Berkshires; the Berkshire Theatre Festival may well be one of the crown jewels in the treasure.
The theater has, in years past, played host to the likes of Lois Nettleton, Richard Chamberlain, "Sex and The City's" Chris Noth and Judy Kaye, who last year, took her show, "Souvenir" to Broadway to great critical acclaim after a tryout run in BTF.
An affordable drive in these gas-cost conscious times, an opportunity for a wonderful getaway and the chance to experience world-class theater await this summer in the Berkshires. Jonathan Epstein stars in the not-to-be-missed current main stage production of "Amadeus" through July 8.
