Great Barrington – When a play has a sold-out run, you know something pretty good is likely to be happening.
And so it is with “Circle Mirror Transformation,” a work by Annie Baker and produced by Patrick Toole and Jody Green, in association with The Actors Cooperative.
For those who missed it, or want another go, the show’s having another run at Mixed Company for one weekend only, from June 5 through June 7 at 7:30 p.m., with a matinee at 3 p.m. on Sunday, June 8.
The play portrays what happens when a group of strangers living in a Vermont village sign up for drama class. During the 6-week course, what starts as ridiculous and at times seemingly pointless acting exercises turn into something entirely different.
The cast includes Rikke Borge, Samantha Cullen, Rebecca Rovezzi, Patrick Toole and Thomas Whaley.
Jody Green, who teaches theater at Mixed Company and studied drama at Howard Meyer’s Acting Studio and at Brown University, is making is directorial debut.
A native of Lenox and a graduate of the Neighborhood Playhouse in New York City, Cullen is a co-producer of this show and is also co-founder of the Actors Cooperative, She has taught in the education programs of Barrington Stage and Shakespeare & Company.
A filmmaker, actor and musician from Lee, Patrick Toole founded the Berkshire Shorts Film Festival.
