‘Pippin’ brews in Cambridge

Massachusetts theaters set shows

New Haven– Massachusetts regional theaters have started to lock in their upcoming slates, with upcoming offerings that include a Diane Paulus-helmed revival of “Pippin” at Cambridge’s A.R.T. and three world premieres set for the summer season at Berkshire Theater Group.

Director Paulus (“Porgy and Bess,” “Hair”) will stage “Pippin” with choreographer Gypsy Snider, one of the co-founders of 7 Fingers, the physical theater troupe behind current Off Broadway outing “Traces.”

The revival of the 1972 tuner by Stephen Schwartz and Roger O. Hirson has been brewing for a while and has already attracted the interest of Gotham producers. Dates at A.R.T., where Paulus is a.d., have yet to be set.

At BTG, Jayne Atkinson will play the title character in the preem of Kelly Masterson’s “Edith,” in which she plays the woman who commanded the White House after husband Woodrow Wilson had a stroke in 1919. Also cast in the show, which runs July 31-Aug. 11, are Jack Gilpin and Michel Gill.

Actor-director James Naughton (“Chicago”) will then helm the premiere of David Epstein’s new comedy “Brace Yourself,” about a hurricane raining down on wedding plans. Show runs Aug. 14-25.

Company’s third preem of the season, William Donnelly’s “Homestead Crossing,” centers on two couples riding out a storm. Kyle Fabel helms the show, which runs Aug. 7-Sept. 1.

Also on the BTG slate are revivals of “A Chorus Line,” “A Class Act,” “A Thousand Clowns” and “The Pupptmaster of Lodz.”
