The Berkshire Theatre Group‘s production of Rock and Roll Man: The Alan Freed Story opened at Pittsfield’s Colonial Theatre on June 27.

The musical, led by Alan Campbell in the title role, takes the form of a fictional trial, in which iconic figures like Little Richard (Richard Crandle) and J. Edgar Hoover (George Wendt) state their case in defense of and against historic disc jockey Alan Freed.

The semi-jukebox musical is directed by Randal Myler with choreography by Brian Reeder and a book by Gary Kupper, Larry Marshak and Rose Caiola.
