GREAT BARRINGTON — Alan Cumming & Ari Shapiro, banjoist Béla Fleck and his My Bluegrass Heart Band, jazz trumpeter Chris Botti and comedian Ryan Hamilton will perform at the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center as part of its 2023 summer season.
The theater will announce more 2023 performances in the coming weeks and throughout the year.
“After belly-laughing while watching his clips on YouTube, I am thrilled to be introducing Ryan Hamilton to Berkshire audiences,” Mahaiwe Executive Director Janis Martinson said in a release. “His sly, accessible humor has a tone of genial genius that is a good fit for the Mahaiwe stage. Chris Botti, Béla Fleck, Alan Cumming, and Ari Shapiro, musical luminaries we are pleased to be able to bring back, are all versatile geniuses of varying flavors. Botti brings jazz and pop influences in his rich sound; Fleck and his amazingly talented band are honing in on bluegrass licks for this show; and Cumming and Shapiro are mixing a sprightly spirit into their cabaret performance.”
