Barrington Stage Company announced April 17 additional titles and concert events for the company's 2013 season. Tony Award winners Tonya Pinkins and Linda Lavin are among the artists who have been added to the lineup.

Concert events and cabarets that have been added include We Made That: The Songs of Miller & Tysen, featuring Chris Miller and Nathan Tysen tunes from their Broadway-aimed musical Tuck Everlasting (June 1-2); Hurricane Ethel: The Life and Times of Ethel Waters, with Pinkins (June 8-9); Lavin in Possibilities, with Billy Stritch on piano (July 8); Ann Hampton Callaway and Liz Callaway in Sibling Revelry (July 14-15); Joe Iconis & Family (July 27-28); and Songs by Ridiculously Talented Composers and Lyricists You Probably Don't Know But Should, hosted by William Finn (Aug. 30-31).

Productions that have joined the lineup are Zayd Dohrn's Muckrakers, directed by Giovanna Sardelli and described as "a political and psychological thriller about secrecy and privacy in the modern world" (June 13-July 6); and Bruce Norris' Pulitzer and Tony Award-winning Clybourne Park, a co-production with Dorset Theatre Festival (Sept. 26-Oct. 13).

A staged reading of Dancing Lessons by Mark St. Germain, directed by Julianne Boyd, will be held Sept. 1. The new play "centers on a high-functioning young man with Asperger's Syndrome as he tries to navigate a relationship with a Broadway dancer, now sidelined with injuries."



Additionally, the company has announced that Aaron Posner will direct his stage adaptation (with Chaim Potok) of Potok's The Chosen; Julianne Boyd will direct Much Ado About Nothing; and Jeff McCarthy will star in the world premiere of Southern Comfort.

As previously announced, Tony Award winner John Rando will direct the dance-heavy musical comedy On the Town, with choreography by Emmy Award-winning "Smash" choreographer Joshua Bergasse.
