LENOX, Mass. — A visit to the Rose Footprint Theatre at Shakespeare & Company is a highlight of our summer. The comedy staged annually in the tented theater is always entertaining, interactive and very kid-friendly.

This year's "The Servant of Two Masters" is all of those, but it wasn't as funny as previous Rose shows. It also has the misfortune of being up against "The Complete Works of Shakespeare (Abridged)," which is playing in the Tina Packer Playhouse and is the funniest thing I have seen a very long time. (Read the Mom Review here.)

So while I was entertained, I did not laugh as much as maybe I would have liked.

The play is an adaptation of

Popcorn Column
by Michael S. Goldberger  
  Annie and Jay (Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel) fear  their home movie may become a viral hit in 'Sex Tape.'

Jake Kasdan's "Sex Tape" accomplishes a curious thing. It's the near surreptitious merging of traditional romantic farce with the new screwball raunchiness that's body-snatched the American film comedy in recent years. While the prim and proper are sure to be abashed by the complications engendered when a thirtysomething couple's tape of their marathon lovemaking goes viral, the jaded may be wont to wonder: When did such risqué behavior

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Berkshire Gas is reporting some of its business customers are being contacted by scammers claiming they are behind on their accounts and demanding immediate payment.

According to Berkshire Gas, the callers are asking for payment by credit over the phone.
 
Several of the fraudulent calls have showed up as originating from 617-419-5406 in the recipients caller ID. Berkshire Gas said it has reported this information to the state police, the attorney general's office and the Department of Public Utilities.

The scam sounds similar to one last year in which callers targeted local businesses claiming to be from National Grid and demanding they purchase money

LENOX, Mass. — New England-based artist Penelope Jencks’s new sculpture of Leonard Bernstein will be unveiled at a ceremony at Highwood manor house on the Tanglewood grounds on Monday, July 28, at 3 p.m.

The new sculpture honors the legendary Leonard Bernstein (1918-1990) — composer, conductor, author, lecturer, and pianist — who led the Boston Symphony and Tanglewood Music Center orchestras in some of the most memorable performances in the history of the festival. Bernstein also played a highly influential pedagogical role at the Tanglewood Music Center, the BSO’s prestigious summer music academy, where he worked with Tanglewood founder Serge Koussevitzky

I've got Pownal on my mind.

I know, strange, right? It's a little town in the corner of Vermont. What's so special about Pownal?

This Saturday, July 26, the annual Pownal Valley Community Fair will be held behind the post office on Route 346, starting at 10 a.m. The fair features kids games, an exhibit hall, crafts and vendors, food for sale, horseshoe tournament and more. The day ends with fireworks at 9:30 p.m.

But more personally, my daughter and I just finished reading Williamstown author Elizabeth Winthrop's "Counting on Grace," a book about a girl in the early 1900s who has to work in a cotton mill in North Pownal. The book is inspired by a photo taken by

Conductor Manfred Honeck leads the BSO at Symphony Hall this past February. He returns to the BSO for a debut at Tanglewood this weekend.

In Symphony No. 2 ("Resurrection"), composed 1888-1894, Mahler the sonic architect has constructed a cathedral of sound that tells the story of a life – our lives – as he spreads before us his five-part panoply of human existence. The final movement, lasting nearly 40 minutes, and with the entrance of the huge chorus, is a symphony within a symphony. Taken together, this 90-minute masterpiece moves us, transports us, and teaches us.

Austrian conductor Manfred Honeck will lead the Boston Symphony Orchestra this weekend

LENOX, Mass. — After the Department of Public Health completed its annual survey at Kimball Farms Nursing Care Center, it issued a report that is rare in Massachusetts: deficiency free, for the fourth time in recent history.

 A deficiency-free result in the state’s rigorous annual examination is one of the top indications of excellence for nursing facilities. In perhaps the most regulated industry within the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and across the nation, nursing facilities are thoroughly surveyed and rated on core criteria including quality care, safety, administration, food service, nursing care and patient rights.

The unannounced inspections by representatives
