Great Barrington, MA: Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center Executive Director Beryl Jolly announced spring 2013 programming today. Highlights include a talk and slide show presentation by author and illustrator Brian Selznick followed by a screening of Martin Scorsese’s Hugo (Sunday, March 17), Masters of the Fiddle with Natalie MacMaster and Donnell Leahy (March 24), humorist David Sedaris (April 6), singer/mandolin virtuoso Chris Thile and jazz pianist Brad Mehldau (April 13), acrobatic troupe Cirque Shanghai: Bai Xi (April 26), and a New England premiere by the Paul Taylor Dance Company (May 24 through May 26), along with “Live in HD” broadcasts by the Metropolitan Opera, London’s National Theatre, and the hit radio show Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me!, as well as classic movies.

“The combination of events we’re announcing for the spring reflects a range of rare opportunities I’m delighted to share with our community-A Caldecott Award-winning author talking onstage with his Berkshire-based editor about how his book became a major motion picture, one of America’s bestselling humor writers, world-class Celtic fiddlers and jazz artists, Chinese acrobats, and our sixth annual performances by the Paul Taylor Dance Company. Each one is a special event and overall they offer a series of fun and intriguing experiences in very different styles-that’s the Mahaiwe Mix,” said Jolly.
