WILLIAMSTOWN, MA– Williamstown TheateR Festival has announced the first round of participants for the inaugural Williamstown Theater festival Cabaret Series at 54 Below. A revolving cast of festival veterans, including Todd Almond, Becky Ann Baker, Jessica Hecht, Greg Hildreth, Joe Iconis, Lauren Molina, Euan Morton, Amy Spanger, Jacob Ming Trent, and Travis Moser will participate in the cabaret, which runs between January 15 and January 18, with a different lineup of performers each night.

For 60 years, the Tony Award-winning Williamstown TheateR Festival been Broadway’s summer home, where renowned stars of stage and screen work alongside America’s next generation of up-and-comers. Now, for the first time ever, the festival’s legendary, irrepressible late-night cabaret brings some Berkshire summer to the Big Apple for four nights only, recreating the off-the-cuff, post-performance atmosphere that has become a WTF trademark. Helmed by longtime WTF music director Kris Kukul, the performance schedule is as follows: January 15 to 16 at 9:30 pm and January 17 to 18 at 11 pm.

Ute Lemper, who starred in both the London and Broadway productions of “Chicago,” plays a limited engagement at 54 Below beginning January 8. Lemper’s shows are scheduled for January 11 at 8 pm, January 13 at 7 pm and 9:30 pm, and January 14 at 9 pm. Natalie Weiss will perform January 10 at 11 pm. Cover starts at $25 plus $25 for food and beverages. Alix Korey will be performing January 10 at 8 pm. A complete lineup for each performance will be announced at a later date.

Tickets for the Williamstown TheateR Festival Cabaret Series at 54 Below range from $40 to $50, and are on sale at www.54below.com. For more information visit www.54below.com.
