And the award goes to…

James Barry!

James Barry accepting his Berkie

We had a great night celebrating all the accomplishments of the past theatre season at the Berkshire Theatre Critics Awards, also known as The Berkies. It was fantastic to be able to spend time with our colleagues from this truly remarkable arts community. We all worked so hard to be bring theatre back during such a challenging time, and it was lovely to take a moment to reflect on all of the incredible shows and performances that made it to the stages in our region.

A big congratulations to James Barry who took home the Outstanding Supporting Actor award for his role in Tiny Beautiful Things. James has been nominated each year since the Berkies were originated, and this was his third win. Add to that Tara Franklin’s 2019 award for Outstanding Solo Performance for On the Exhale, and that’s a lot of Berkies bling in the Franklin-Barry household!

We offer heartfelt congratulations to all of the nominees and winners. We are grateful to be in your company in this beautiful region that embraces the arts so warmly.
