Williamstown, 11:00 a.m.
Sweetwood for the next event in the Williamstown Historical Museum lecture series, when Dustin Griffin will give an illustrated talk on Buxton: The History of West Main St. from Benjamin Simonds to Cole Porter. This short stretch of Main St., once known as the “Buxton District,” is the site of the initial settlement of Williamstown, of two of the oldest surviving houses, and of the town’s first cemetery.  “Buxton Place” on West Main was for more than a hundred years the home of the Danforths, one of the town’s leading families. “Buxton Hall” –demolished nearly 60 years ago –was once one of the town’s grandest mansions, the summer home of the Lawrie family. And a big house called “Buxton Hill” was once the home of the town’s most  famous summer resident, Cole Porter. Over the last ten years the lecturer, Dusty Griffin, has presented many talks in the Museum’s lecture series, including “A Short History of Treadwell Hollow,” “The History of Flora’s Glen,” “Captain and Corporal: Two Williamstown Soldiers in the 37th Massachusetts,”

ARS NOVA + LIGHTNING ROD SPECIAL: UNDERGROUND RAILROAD GAME
Williamstown, 8 p.m.
Created by Jennifer Kidwell & Scott R. Sheppard, Directed by Taibi Mager Named one of the top ten theatre experiences of 2016 by the New York Times, Underground Railroad Game is a vivid, piercing piece of experimental performance from Philadelphia-based company Lightning Rod Special. Over its rapid-fire 75 minutes, the piece toes the line between sketch comedy show and excruciating American history lesson, set in a middle school classroom. Lightning Rod Special’s raucous performance earned them the 2017 Obie Award for Best New American Theatre Work, one of the highest honors in the field. By tearing down barriers of political correctness and challenging the contemporary liberal interracial dialogue, Underground Railroadexcavates hidden—and often ugly—truths about race, identity, and historical memory. 62 Center

LIGHT: WEEKEND YOGA INTENSIVE WITH DEVIN KIBBE
North Adams, 6 p.m.
March 9 - 11 Over 16 hours of yoga, lecture, meditation, and discussion to deepen your yoga practice. This weekend is intended for you to fall in love with your practice all over again. As practicing yogis we find walls, plateaus, dark spaces that we didn't think were there when we first go that 'yoga high' after our first class. We will use different practices including yoga nidra, meditation, flow yoga, and even strength training to change our relationship with fear and these blocks. The end of winter can feel monotonous and like there's not enough light, but it's a great time to shift and prepare, and remember the light that is always within. We hope you will join us. Space is limited. Read the details on our website.
