Berkshire on Stage Offers an Unusual Array of “Top Picks” for August [Berkshire on Stage]
By Larry Murray
August is the month of bounty, when those tasty tomatoes begin to overflow the basket, and every stage in the Berkshires and beyond is filled with glorious live entertainment. All six of our major cultural organizations are in high gear: Tanglewood, Jacob’s Pillow, Barrington Stage Company, Berkshire Theatre Group, Shakespeare & Company and the Williamstown Theatre Festival all have sure-fire crowd-pleasers on their stages, but so do lots of other, smaller groups.
So here are lots of suggestions of things to do – some from the familiar and popular organizations but this month we put the emphasis on the smaller and lesser known arts organizaions you should know about. Enjoy the Berkshire’s season of plenty – the leaves start dropping in less than ten weeks.
