What awaits us on the summer stages in 2022? Artistic Directors, who creatively set up productions on outdoor stages, in spacious tents, or around museum pools the summer of 2021, are at work on the tentative 2022 season. Change is coming as two Artistic Directors, at Barrington Stage and Williamstown, are leaving. Join us by Zoom for a perspective on the local performing arts from a Critics Panel and a close-up of the new season from ten local artistic directors.
