Best Limelight: Trinity Repertory Company

50 Years


If you polled the entire state, you probably wouldn’t find a single native Rhode Islander who hadn’t been to at least one performance of A Christmas Carol at Trinity Rep. The show – and the theatre – are as integral to our state as Del’s and jokes about political corruption. The season that closed last month (that included a show helmed by company alum and Oscar nominee Richard Jenkins and his wife Sharon) was Trinity’s 50th. We could talk all day about what the theatre has done, but we’re more interested in what they’re doing – more innovative shows, more collaborations with the Brown/Trinity Playwrights Rep (also turning 10 this year), more work to bring theatre into Providence’s public schools. That calls for some applause.
