Distinguished-Director-in-Residence Theodore “Regge” Life is directing a new play that will be staged in a barbershop in Pittsfield, Massachusetts. Each performance can accommodate 50 audience members.

To stage Kaufman’s Barber Shop, Life collaborated with playwright Robert Sugarman, who wrote the play based on a Jewish barbershop in Syracuse, New York, in 1925.

Excerpt from the Boston Globe: The barbershop plays an important role in the African-American community just as in that Jewish community, Life says, as “the place where people would meet and greet and stories would be told and a lot of education was passed down from the elders to young people.”
