Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center Keeping the Berkshires Vibrant

Shawn Colvin Those following news about the Berkshires know that National Geographic Traveler recently rated us one of the Top Ten Destinations in the world! Of course, having a world-class summer season of theater, dance and music is part of the package. But if the place completely dried up the rest of the year, I do not believe we would have received this recognition.

Thanks to recent renovations of the Colonial Theatre in Pittsfield and the Mahaiwe Theater in Great Barrington, great performances are available to local audiences, and off-season visitors all year. Just over the next several weeks, the Mahaiwe is featuring a showing of Paul Newman’s Cool Hand Luke, the Metropolitan Opera presents an HD broadcast of "Hamlet," David Bromberg is in town to showcase his folk, blues and bluegrass innovations. Finally, local favorite Shawn Colvin is here April 16th.

The Colonial Theatre has Roger McGuinn and Tom Rush this weekend, as well as nine other presentations in the next 30 days. And this is April! The offerings include speakers, lecturers, music, and even Beatlemania.

Hampton Terrace is located about 15 minutes from each venue. Let us help you plan a great Berkshire weekend, including an experience at one of our beautifully renovated venues.
