This weekend our region boasts Harold Pinter, avant-garde music, a special pre-release film screening of an Oscar contender, New Orleans jazz, a recreation of Bob Dylan and the Band, old timey music, and avant-garde performance.
This weekend our region boasts comedy, a new orchestra, exhibits of local and national photography, readings of new works of fiction and poetry, and an all-star selection of Woodstock-based rock talent re-creating the music of one of the Hudson Valley’s greatest bands ever, Steely Dan.
This weekend our region boasts a huge festival of American roots music, a reading by a major American poet, a comedy festival headlined by a living legend, and a conversation with one of our best essayists and observers of the ways and mores of contemporary American life.
Dance music, cabaret, literary celebrations, jazz and Broadway stars – it may be Labor Day weekend, and cookouts may be first on the menu – but there are still plenty of reasons to get out and about in our region this weekend.
As sure is there is a chill now in the evening air, the summer cultural season in our region is winding down. You still have a few chances to catch “His Girl Friday” at Barrington Stage in Pittsfield, and Shakespeare & Company in Lenox has a few shows in rotation this weekend. But the summer theater season is pretty much over with.
