Celebrating the incredible legacy of Founding Artistic Director Tina Packer. Tina’s vision made Shakespeare & Company what it is today, and has shaped how Shakespeare is talked about, performed, and experienced around the world. We are excited to gather, with artists and individuals from the span of the Company’s history, to revel in all that Tina has contributed to performance, actor training, theater education, and the Berkshires.
Shakespeare & Company presents the Tony Award-winning playwright Ken Ludwig’s Dear Jack, Dear Louise – the story of two strangers introduced through letters, kept apart by war, and drawn together through shared stories of their lives, hopes, and fears. A comedic and touching look at life in 1942 complete with nods to music, theater, and literature. Dear Jack, Dear Louise was inspired by the World War II courtship of Ludwig’s parents.
