7:00 AM ET Oct 8, 2006: From the News Desk of Travel Radio Expert and host of the nationally syndicated radio travel show, "Travel WITH Stephanie Abrams!"   Nationally Syndicated Radio Travel Expert Stephanie Abrams Advises, "Head for the Hills of Berkshire Mountains for Fall Foliage and Sandy Duncan's 'Mame'"

BOSTON, Oct 8, 2006 (PrimeZone Media Network via COMTEX) -- Combine a romp through the vibrant fall foliage in the Berkshire Mountains of Western Massachusetts with the rip-roarin' performance of Sandy Duncan in the title role of "Mame" at Pittsfield's Barrington Stage Company, advises Stephanie Abrams, nationally syndicated radio talk show host of "Travel WITH Stephanie Abrams!" and weekly guest travel expert on radio's 'Traveling Feet.' "Barrington Stage adds one more jewel to the crown of Berkshire County's cultural offerings with the restoration of this historic theatre now open after 94 years in the dark. `Mame,' which opened last night as the first fall production in Barrington Stage's new Pittsfield, MA home, was joyful, energetic and a crowd-pleaser judging by the standing ovation for Sandy Duncan and the cast from the opening night audience," Abrams states.

Abrams notes that Barrington Stage provides another reason for travelers to the Berkshires to put Pittsfield on top of their 'Must Visit' list. Abrams points to the enormous efforts of committees, agencies of local government, and organizations in Pittsfield, encouraged by Pittsfield's Mayor James Ruberto, to achieve goals related to the emergence of Pittsfield as a cultural center for the arts.

"Pittsfield is working hard to earn its place among cities where modern talent is the bridge that brings vitality to historic sites and visitors to enjoy all that it offers. Barrington Stage has big plans for the 2007 season and the enjoyment of the audience last night was a clear indication that the theater is on the right path to crowd-pleasers. When you plan for next 2007, be sure to add Tanglewood, the summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra to your Berkshire itinerary!" Abrams notes.

Barrington Stage's theater blends the original historic interior with blond wood seatbacks and thickly cushioned seats. This sleek look provides maximum comfort and generous legroom. "The theater has great acoustics and doesn't have a bad seat in the house. After the show, walk next door to Spice, a restaurant whose decor and menu will make you think you're in London or Milan with brick walls, shiny wood floors, a bar lounge filled with comfortable conversation areas, and cuisine that one rarely finds outside of the most fashionable cities in the world! And you'll wake up surrounded by lakes, mountains, world-class museums, historic homes and bicycle trails. The majesty of it all drives home the point made by the Berkshire Visitors Bureau: Berkshires County is the place `where nature sets the stage and culture steals the show!'"

Abrams, rated one of the 100 Most Powerful Women in Travel by Travel Agent Magazine and who serves as the Ambassador to North America for Saxony Tourism, provides travel tips, news, program notes for her nationally syndicated radio show appearances, iPod links and a library of archived past radio shows at her award-winning website,
