We've supported and enjoyed BSC's productions for years! We think they're by far and away the very best theater has to offer -- here in The Berkshires or on Broadway. But now they've done something that angers many long-time patrons. They opened "Mr. Finn's Cabaret" in a basement space that seats 100 people at closely packed tables and at the bar. By and large, the shows have been outstanding...BUT. They advertise this as non-reserved, open seating. When you get there you find they reserved at least three-quarters of the good tables with good sight-lines for "special" people, leaving us plebes to scramble for the remainder or sit at the bar on stools with no backs. We have to get there at least three-quarters of an hour early to scramble for the left-overs. They have even reserved many of the few parking spaces. This is highly elitist and leaves us 'ordinary' supporters upset. Before you buy tickets for the cabaret you might want to consider our experience.
