The program will also be simulcast on 89.5fm/WSKB.
According to Mark G. Auerbach, producer/host of ArtsBeat TV/Radio on WCPC15 and 89.5fm/WSKB, and a member of the Berkshire Theatre Critics Association, “The “Berkies” are the equivalent of the Tony Awards for the professional theatres, large and small, in our region. Many of these theatres have sent productions on to Broadway and regional theatres nationwide”. Auerbach added that the actual ceremony was held in Pittsfield, with a limited capacity, due to COVID restrictions, “and many theatre lovers didn’t have the opportunity to see the Berkies ceremony in person”.
