Performances play the BSC Mainstage in Pittsfield, MA. Opening is Aug. 9. The Pulitzer Prize-winning 1947 "exploration of fractured domesticity, sexual love and frustration…set against the steamy backdrop of New Orleans' gritty French Quarter" will also feature Kevin Carolan (The Ritz and Dirty Blonde) as Mitch. Also in the cast are Emily Taplin Boyd (Nurse), Miles Hutton Jacoby (Young Collector), John Juback (Steve), Jeffrey Kent (Doctor), Chavez Ravine (Mexican Woman/Blues Singer), Jennifer Regan (Eunice), and Thom Rivera (Pablo).

The production is designed by Brian Prather (sets), Scott Pinkney (lights), Elizabeth Flauto (costumes), and Brad Berridge (sound). Renee Lutz is production stage manager.
