PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Barrington Stage Company will present two virtual performances this week.
Jazz vocalist Ann Hampton Callaway will perform two streamed concerts on Aug. 31 and Sept. 1.
Callaway’s one-woman show "Diva Power" takes a personal look at the iconic women who were trailblazers in music and whose careers, voices, and songs helped to shape Callaway’s artistry.
Callaway celebrates such artists as Barbra Streisand, Linda Ronstadt, Judy Garland, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Billie Holiday, Peggy Lee, Anita O’Day, Edith Piaf, Etta James, Carole King and Joni Mitchell.
Musical selections include "Over the Rainbow," "People," "How High the Moon," "Tenderly," "La Vie En Rose," "The Folks Who Live On the Hill" and "A Case of You" among others.
On Friday, Sept. 4 and Saturday, Sept. 7 the Barrington Stage Company will steam to live world premiere readings of the play "Elanor."
The play, written by Mark St. Germain, tells the story of first lady Eleanor Roosevelt. From her "Ugly Duckling" upbringing to her unorthodox marriage to Franklin, "Eleanor" puts her controversial life, loves and passions on the stage.
The play stars Tony Award-winner Harriet Harris and is directed by Henry Stram.
The play was previously announced for September 4 and 5 at the Boyd-Quinson Mainstage. Instead, the reading will be filmed at the Mainstage without an audience.
If you purchased tickets for the original Mainstage performance, please contact the Box Office to receive more information about viewing the virtual performance.

Pittsfield Seeks Input For Draft Bicycle Facilities Master Plan
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The city of Pittsfield is requesting public input for its draft Bicycle Facilities Master Plan.
The plan aims to establish a safe, comfortable and connected bicycle network throughout the city that is accessible to people of all ages and abilities.
"With this project, the City of Pittsfield is taking a significant step in its steadfast commitment to plan and implement a safe and accessible citywide network for people who bike for various reasons to a range of destinations throughout Pittsfield," City Planner CJ Hoss said. "The development of this master plan will be a collaborative process, and we are seeking to hear from the community."
The master plan will allow the city to develop a long-term citywide vision for a bicycle network and grow beyond a "one-street-at-a-time" planning approach, Hoss said. The city has retained Kittleson and Associations Inc., a nationally renowned transportation focused consulting firm, to lead this project.
