The Berkshire Fringe has quickly become a respected fixture on the landscape here, drawing praise from local newspaper theater critics and respect for its grit... “We knew we wanted to do the Fringe in the Berkshires because we thought the festival would add something fresh to the landscape and because we thought the Berkshires hadn’t fully developed as a place where emerging artists could have a voice,” Ms. Katzoff said.
