Here's how BSC bills the show: "A soup kitchen in the Depression. A pregnant woman refuses to give birth until she sees more hope in the world. Former socialites, unemployed actors, capitalists down on their luck, and Eleanor Roosevelt try to get through the Depression with some dignity intact."
The design team of Romance in Hard Times includes Brian Prather (scenic design), Sara Jean Tosetti (costume design), Robert Brown (lighting design), Patrick Calhoun (sound design) and Michael Andrew Rodgers (production stage manager). Stephanie Yankwitt is the Blatt Center producer.
Finn penned Romance in Hard Times in 1989 at the Public Theater as part of Joseph Papp's "musical laboratories," where it received two engagements. Korey returns to the role of Zoe in this workshop production, a role she played Off-Broadway at the Public.
A conversation with Finn and Sheinkin, moderated by artistic director Julianne Boyd, will be held Aug. 21 at 4 PM. Admission is free. A free post-show discussion with the cast will follow the Aug. 26 at 7:30 PM performance.
Barrington Stage Company is under the leadership of artistic director Boyd and managing director Tristan Wilson.
The Lee Blatt Performing Arts Center is located at 36 Linden Street in Pittsfield, MA. For more information and tickets, call (413) 236-8888 or visit BarringtonStageCo.org.
