Boone tunes to ‘Comedy’

Thesp to star in revival

Grammy-winner Debby Boone, who starred in “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers” on Broadway in 1982, will star in the June revival of “The Human Comedy” at Barrington Stage in Massachusetts’ Berkshires.

The tuner, which played on Broadway in a production that originated at the Public Theater in 1984, features music by Galt MacDermot (“Hair”), with book and lyrics by William Dumaresq.

The Berkshire revival, staged by theater artistic director Julianne Boyd, will play June 24-July 16 at the Boland Theater at the Koussevitzky Arts Center at Berkshire Community College in Pittsfield, Mass. Choreography will be by Lara Teeter.

The sung-through show is based on the William Saroyan story that was made into a 1943 film starring Mickey Rooney, Frank Morgan and Fay Bainter.

Boone will also take the stage July 3 for “Reflections of Rosemary,” a musical tribute to her late mother-in-law, Rosemary Clooney, at Berkshire Community College.
