Barrington Stage has gone all out with this production. It has a cast of 27, and when they're all dancing, filling the stage with energy, grace and simply perfect body lines, I realized that even the latest Broadway revival in 2009 wasn't in the same league. The depth of talent is staggering. click for more
The "heavy hitters" are John Williams' "Film Night" - always an audience favorite event and a high point of each year's Tanglewood offerings - led by Mr. Williams and Boston Symphony maestro Andris Nelsons click for more
In this colorful, travelogue-like landscape, smugglers, powerbrokers, mad ideologues and guv'mint agencies of nearly every stripe fall over each other in dire attempt to gain ownership of nothing less than the (drum roll, please) plutonium cores. It takes no great leap of the imagination to... click for more
While the camera intermittently switches among psychiatrists who came to be familiar with the case, and who chime in with their opinions, we can't help but mull our own analysis of what we're witnessing.
It might require a drive, but you can hear country/western music, Bernstein and great stuff for children in the coming days ... or catch up with nudity that began 50 years ago and caused a sensation on Broadway.
A new concept in cultural education that launches in summer 2019, the Tanglewood Learning Institute will bring together musicians, artists, academics and patrons, in person and through online technology and distance learning, to engage in compelling programming that relates to and deepens the experience of Tanglewood concerts and classical music.

Patti had his work commissioned for the Berkshire Museum. He has pieces at the entrance, the foyer, and in three other locations. But now, Patti doesn't feel that the museum values local artists.
Wiesenberger's interests span modern and contemporary art, design, and architecture. He has been a member of the Yale faculty since 2013, teaching a seminar on the history and theory of graphic design in the school's MFA program in graphic design
This production of "Hair" is far more than good. It is astonishing! The unbelievable energy of the 15-member cast not only brings that troubling and exciting time of our history to life on the stage, it reawakens our spirits and our souls. We want to get on the stage to dance and protest with them.
Simply stated, what you’ll see and hear this week in these four venues is a sampling of the very best within the richness and diversity of classical music programming in our region – all brilliantly performed.
The Berkshire Museum has released its financial reports in an effort to prove that the art sale was needed to keep the museum open.
The museum posted its independent audit, its federal tax statement Form 990, the Massachusetts state tax statement required as a non-profit, and annual filing for charitable organizations in New York State, which is filed with registration to solicit donations from New York.
The performance took place at Tanglewood on the evening of July 7 before a huge, enthusiastic audience. It was part of this summer's Bernstein 100 birthday celebration. Even the weather was in the cool, comfortable 60s.
