About

Barrington Stage Company’s recent production of Harry Clarke isn’t just a play. It’s a test-case — the first Actors’ Equity Association-approved production since theater went dark. As such, the spotlight was blinding, and all eyes were on this one-man-show, eager to learn whether theater can adapt to the realities of COVID. So what’s the verdict? Is it safe to go back into the water? Kevin spoke to lone actor Mark H. Dold and BSC artistic director Julianne Boyd to find out.
