Weekend Planner — Theater
While “Anna Christie,” Eugene O’Neill’s gritty waterfront drama about a former prostitute, was a hit on the stages of Broadway and in London in 1921-22 (and won the author a Pulitzer Prize), its universal claim to fame only came in 1930 when a film version served as the vehicle for silent-screen siren Greta Garbo to make her speaking debut (“Garbo Talks!”).
An engrossing study of three at-odds personalities — with The Sea functioning as a kind of fourth character — it opens in a revival by the Berkshire Theatre Group this weekend and plays through Aug. 31 at the Fitzpatrick Main Stage, 6 East St. in Stockbridge. Shows are nightly at 8 (except for Wed., Aug. 28, when the performance begins at 7 p.m.), with matinees Saturdays at 2 p.m. $38,$48, $58. 298-5576, berkshiretheatregroup.org
