The Williamstown Theatre released the full 2012 Schedule for their summer festival last week. Nine plays -- from "Here Lies Love" to "The Elephant Man" -- featuring the likes of Fatboy Slim and Bradley Cooper, respectively, will show from June 21 to August 19.
The Williamstown Theatre Festival is a summer-long festival at Williams College in Williamstown, Mass. It began in 1955 and has since become renowned for featuring brilliant classics with famous cast members and unorthodox twists. This year's big remake is David Hyde Pierce's "The Importance of Being Earnest," which marries the worlds of "Guys & Dolls" gangsters with high society a la "Downton Abbey," Broadway.com reports.
Talking Heads' David Byrne worked with electronic dance musician Norman Cook of Fatboy Slim for their musical "Here Lies Love." The play is an interactive, multimedia experience that follows the story of Filipina First Lady Imelda Marcos, full of the music they Byrne and Cook are known for, plus the dance their music inspired.
Hollywood heart throb Bradley Cooper ("Wet Hot American Summer," "The Hangover") will star in "The Elephant Man," based on the true story of the tragic disfigurement of the man with the same name.
In addition to stellar lineups summer after summer, in our research we noticed the festival has also has a slew of artistic promotional posters winding back 57 years, all available to view on their website.
