Woodstock’s Bearsville Theater complex poised for rebirth as new owner takes on challenges

The stage at the Bearsville Theater has featured members of some of rock and roll’s biggest bands, like Mick Taylor from the Rolling Stones, Bob Weir of the Grateful Dead and Mike Gordon of Phish.

Jon Anderson of Yes performed at the Woodstock venue with students from the Paul Green Rock Academy. The Pretenders, the B-52s and Natalie Merchant are among groups that held pre-tour rehearsals there.
