Say Yes!, a new musical by Sherman Yellen and Wally Harper, which began performances at the Berkshire Theatre Festival Aug. 15, will end its run Sept. 2. On the same date, the fest will conclude its 72nd season.
The show, which centers on the 1939 New York World's Fair, features a cast of eight, under Jay Binder's direction. In the show are John Deyle, Christianne Tisdale, Mitchell Greenberg, Denny Dillon (Clue, HBO's "Dream On"), Linda Thorson, Meredith Patterson, Tim Warman and J. Robert Spencer.
Among the characters taking in the World's Fair, famous for its Perisphere and Hall of Man, are a penniless debutante and an equally broke playboy, a mixed-up millionaire and a working girl with a brilliant mind. Love is found, of course, and in unexpected places.
The Berkshire Theatre Festival is located in Stockbridge, MA. For information, call (413) 298-5536.
