08:58PM / Thursday, July 26, 2018

A hand-lettered sign on the door of the Berkshire Mall on Thursday afternoon.

LANESBOROUGH, Mass. — The latest in a series of intermittent closures had the Berkshire Mall closed to commerce on Thursday.

'Three Identical Strangers': Relatively Horrifying
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires film critic
04:18PM / Thursday, July 26, 2018
You don't have to be Jewish to lament "Oy, yoy, yoy" after seeing director Tim Wardle's shocking documentary, "Three Identical Strangers." After being presented a series of outlandish and disturbing disclosures about the title triplets separated at birth, adopted by three separate families and who are reunited at age 19, you'll warm up for that final assessment by first issuing several "Holy Cows," a few "Yipes" and perhaps a couple good old-fashioned "Wows."   Unaware of, or having forgotten about, the celebrity that Eddy Galland, David Kellman and Robert Shafran enjoyed when they discovered each other in the early 1980s, I

By Matt McGrory, Special to iBerkshires
10:14PM / Wednesday, July 25, 2018

Blue skies peek out from between dark clouds Wednesday afternoon.

Do you need an umbrella, or do you need sunglasses? Lately it seems in Berkshire County, you need both every time you leave the house.

As anyone who has grown up in the Berkshires is aware, the county’s climate is prone to violently fluctuate from one extreme to another over the course of the seasons - and even over the course of the day. 

This recent weather pattern has shown that to be true.

Every day this week, sunshine has peeked in and out around heavy downpours, while temperatures have been high and humidity has been oppressive. Will that pattern continue?

According to weather.com, over the next two weeks,

02:56PM / Wednesday, July 25, 2018

'West Side Story' will be shown at Tanglewood on Saturday night, accompanied live by the Boston Symphony Orchestra.

Musical theater thrives in the region this week — on stage and on film. It might require a drive, but you can hear country/western music, Bernstein and great stuff for children in the coming days ... or catch up with nudity that began 50 years ago and caused a sensation on Broadway.

 

Tanglewood

The most famous work by Leonard Bernstein, whose centennial is being celebrated all summer worldwide, is, of course, "West Side Story." At the Shed on Saturday night at 8 p.m., Tanglewood presents the remastered movie of this iconic musical, on big
