Next Stop, Williamstown: Festival to Offer July 30 Bus to Festival

News   Next Stop, Williamstown: Festival to Offer July 30 Bus to Festival
For New Yorkers who don't own a car, getting to the Williamstown Theatre Festival has long proved a difficult proposition. Trains do not visit the small Berkshires town and the only bus from Manhattan is a slow-moving local.

New WTF artistic director Roger Rees is seeking to end that frustrating reality. On July 30, the fest is offering direct bus service to Williamstown. A chartered vehicle will pick up interested passengers on 42nd Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues at 9:30 AM. Upon arriving, theatregoers will have two hours to explore the town before taking in the 4 PM performance of Caryl Churchill's Top Girls. After the matinee, the Williams Inn will provide a "light dinner" (chicken Caesar salad or vegetable quiche or French dip and fries, beverage and dessert). An 8:30 PM show of The Sugar Syndrome will follow before the bus collects its audience and heads back to New York City.

The cost of the venture is $130 person, which includes the travel cost, two shows and dinner. Tickets can be purchased by calling the WTF box office at (413) 597-3400.
