Berat’s career continues to soar with “Fly by Night”

BY GEORGE J. DACRE

Adam_Chanler-BeratRockland County’s own Adam Chanler Berat stars in a new musical off-Broadway in New York City “Fly by Night.” The show has received rave reviews from the New York Times, Post and Daily News among others.

Berat is a graduate of Clarkstown High School, where he starred in many productions. He has performed in his professional career in such shows as “Next To Normal” both on and off-Broadway and “Peter and the Starcatcher” on Broadway.

In “Fly by Night” he stars alongside Allison Case and a first-rate cast in the show, described by the producers as a darkly comic rock-fable. Berat plays a melancholy sandwich-maker whose humdrum life is intersected by two entrancing sisters.

Described as a sweeping ode to young love set against the backdrop of the Northeast blackout of 1965, it is said to be a tale about making your way and discovering hope in a world beset by darkness.

“Fly By Night” opened June 11 and runs through June 29 when the producers hope it could move to Broadway. Berat is also scheduled to do a play in September named “Fortress Of Solitude.” More details on that when available.
