To the Editor:

Congratulation to the nine all white male firefighter that Pittsfield just hired with federal funds and to the City's Equal Rights and Employment Commission for a job well done. It appears they have made lots of progress in the last few years. The city should be real proud.

Sean Curran


Pittsfield, Mass.

Review: 'Fall Springs' is a Musical With a Message

By Nancy SalzGuest Column

Can a musical comedy convey a serious message?
 
"South Pacific" addresses race relations and WWII while also making us smile with "There's Nothing Like A Dame" and "Honey Bun."

Combining two approaches is the difficult goal of the promising new musical "Fall Springs," which is having its world premiere at the Barrington Stage. And they manage to pull it off. Not perfectly, but well enough to provide a very entertaining evening in the theater.

"Fall Springs" is best described as a serious farce – with the themes of fracking, science versus disbelief,  and age versus youth. Confused? Perhaps this description of the fantasy plot will help.
