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."

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.
