Popcorn Column
by Michael S. Goldberger  
  Lucy, played by Scarlett Johansson, delves into the psychedelic potential - and mayhem - in the human mind.

If through some time warp Albert Einstein happened to be in the theater where you were enjoying the thrills, wit and wisdom of auteur Luc Besson's "Lucy," chances are you'd hear the physicist pause from his popcorn munching and yell, "That's what I'm saying."

There is a grand conceit in this finely directed amalgam of action and intelligence, exhilarating on both counts. You leave the cinema thinking that finally you understand the theory of

Come August, the summer high season for classical music blossoms, with a glorious profusion of "fiori musicali" throughout the region.

The mind reels with the diversity of it all: opera in concert, concerto and symphony, the ever-popular John Williams' Film Night – all at Tanglewood; a recital for cello and piano of Baroque masterpieces and more at The Clark Art Institute; an all-Beethoven orchestral concert in Manchester, and a spectacular piano recital at Tannery Pond.

Read below for the details.

Everyone has their own favorite and usually it's the town they grew up in or live in, or at least I hope many can feel that way about where they live.

Take Williamstown for example. Is Williamstown the best small town in America? Here are some reasons to consider it just might be (and in future blogs I'll probably cover other towns and cities in the Berkshires and why they could be the best, too).

Reason 1.  The lack of traffic. Williamstown has none except when there's something big going on like the Williams alumni parade or fall alumni homecoming and those conditions last all of 15 minutes. Even on those rare occasions a driver can still drive the length of Main

Sam Rockwell and Nina Arianda in 'Fool for Love' at Williamstown Theatre Festival this week. WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — As the calendar turns to August, the days get shorter and evenings get a little bit darker — particularly at the Williamstown Theatre Festival.   The WTF this week wraps up an 11-day run for the Sam Shepard drama "Fool for Love" on the Nikos Stage and launches the musical "The Visit" on its Main Stage.   The former looks at twisted love and desperation in the American West. The latter is a tale of diabolical revenge in a small town.   Neither is what you might characterize as light summer fare.   But WTF Producer

The Public Safety Building Study Committee expressed some frustration that its efforts to determine the suitability of the so-called Lehovec property have so far come to naught. WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The town's Public Safety Building Study Committee is still interested in the Main Street parcel owned by the estate of Kurt Lehovec.   But the committee wants to see other properties.   After months of trying to reach an agreement with the estate that would allow the town to examine the land before making an offer to buy it, the joint town-Fire District body decided Tuesday to ask the Board of Selectmen to authorize a request for proposals to buy land either for a

Bill H.3996, An Act relative to the labeling of seed, requires that "food for human consumption and seeds that produce

Selectmen Chairman Ronald Turbin and Jane Patton review minutes from a prior meeting on Monday evening. Patton filled in the board on conversations about possibly moving the Fire District's annual meeting to the same day as town meeting. WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — There has been a lot of talk over the couple of years about getting the town's two municipal entities on the same page.   Part of the solution may lie in getting them on the same page of the calendar.   At Monday's meeting of the Board of Selectmen, Selectwoman Jane Patton told her colleagues about discussions she has had with the chairman of the Prudential Committee, which oversees Williamstown's
