WILLIAMSTOWN, MA – Williamstown Theater Festival’s 2014 season opener, “June Moon,” will run on the Main Stage July 2 through July 13.

“June Moon” marks director Jessica Stone’s return to the WTF stage following her runaway festival hits “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum” and “Last of the Red Hot Lovers.”

Earnest and gullible young lyricist Fred Stevens boards a train in Schenectady bound for the Big Apple, determined to make a name for himself in the thriving Tin Pan Alley scene. However, the life he’s imagined is rife with seductive distractions, namely women, that threaten to derail his dream of penning the next big ditty.

Both bitterly funny and deliciously literate, legendary humorists Ring Lardner and George S. Kaufman celebrate and skewer the perishable pop of yesteryear.

Tickets for all Williams­town Theater Festival productions can be purchased online at wtfestival.org, by phone at (413) 597-3400 or in person at the ‘62 Center for Theater and Dance box office at 1000 Main St (Route 2), Williamstown.
