WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Barrington Stage Company, the award-winning theater in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, hosts BSC/NYC, an annual New York City benefit. This year's installment celebrates the company's New Works Initiative and honors composer Joe Iconis with the William Finn Award for Innovation and Excellence in Musical Theatre. The evening begins with a cocktail reception; then comes a cabaret performance by some of Broadway and Barrington's most beloved stars. Among the performers are Jeannette Bayardelle (The Color Purple), Allison Blackwell (The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess), Ellen Harvey (Present Laughter), Lauren Marcus (Company), Kyle Dean Massey (Pippin), Will Roland (Dear Evan Hansen), and Will Swenson (Waitress).
