PITTSFIELD -- Barrington Stage Company is celebrating its New Works Initiative with a "BSC in NYC" benefit Monday evening at 6 at the American Airlines Theatre Penthouse, 227 W. 42nd St. in New York.
The BSC New Works Initiative was launched in 2012 with Mark St. Germain's world premiere, "Dr. Ruth, All the Way," now titled "Becoming Dr. Ruth."
Directed by Julianne Boyd, the Barrington Stage Company production of "Becoming Dr. Ruth" is now playing Off-Broadway at the Westside Theater, 407 W. 43 St. with Debra Jo Rupp as Dr. Ruth.
Rupp will perform excerpts from the play -- based on the life of America's most famous sex therapist, Dr. Ruth K. Westheimer -- at the benefit, after which the actress will interview Dr. Ruth about the play and her career as a sex therapist.
The evening begins with a cocktail party.
Tickets start at $250 and may be ordered online at barringtonstageco.org or through "BSC in NYC" coordinator Janie LaBrasca at (413) 997-6118.
