Review: 'Fall Springs' is a Musical With a Message
By Nancy Salz, Guest Column
11:49AM / Monday, August 19, 2019

Can a musical comedy convey a serious message?
 
"South Pacific" addresses race relations and WWII while also making us smile with "There's Nothing Like A Dame" and "Honey Bun."

Combining two approaches is the difficult goal of the promising new musical "Fall Springs," which is having its world premiere at the Barrington Stage. And they manage to pull it off. Not perfectly, but well enough to provide a very entertaining evening in the theater.

'The Art of Racing in the Rain': Tearjerker & Tail-Wagger
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
09:19PM / Thursday, August 15, 2019
'Despite a plot-slowing traffic jam midway and the accumulation of saddening clouds in the later laps that almost turns matters into a dirge, director Simon Curtis's "The Art of Racing in the Rain" featured enough enthusiasm and albeit over-the-top sweetness to win me over.    Hey, it's about auto racing and dogs.   All that was needed to fully complete my world would be a healthy portion about food. Preferably unhealthy food. But alas, as this PG-rated tale about ambition, love and devotion unabashedly instructs, you can't have everything.   Meet Enzo — his namesake being Enzo Ferrari, of course — the golden retriever pup who wins
