NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The third show of Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts' Fine and Performing Arts Department's theater program continues to emphasize this season's theme of "We the People" with its adaptation of Eugene Ionesco's play, "Rhinoceros," which will open at 8 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 23, in MCLA's Venable Theater.     Guest artist David Lane, who directs the production, described "Rhinoceros" as an absurdist theater production that includes comedy and tragedy, as well as dark political tones.   "'We the People' is not a given, and democracy doesn't exist without a country of people to

On a recent gloomy night I pondered weak and weary, not because I was necessarily weak or weary, but because I like the expression and it was time to make my Oscar picks, an annual tradition I abhor with no small amount of dread and disdain. All the same, I was determined that this year's choices would be the likes of which the world has never before seen. Believe me.   They'd be so correct that people would be bored by them. I'm like a smart person. I went to the best schools. I make great deals. All I had to do was get a little help from the outside. It's all the rage, y'know?   Thus it was quite fortuitous that, after channeling the modus operandi of New

The kids whooped and hollered in gleeful approval of director Will Gluck's adaptation of Beatrix Potter's "Peter Rabbit." This even included the 10-to-12 contingent, usually too sophisticated to admit endorsement of an entertainment that might indict them of liking "baby stuff." And while the littler ones among the audience of fully engaged firstnighters whose space I recently invaded brought fingernails to lips whenever the title character risked cottontail and whiskers for ill-gotten vegetation, they, too, were otherwise charmed.      I was heartened by several insights, not the least of which was the erudition evinced by these young moviegoers

I wasn't looking forward to seeing "I, Tonya," about provocative, world class ice skater Tonya Harding. The events surrounding her quest for Olympic greatness and fellow competitor Nancy Kerrigan's ruthlessly broken kneecap seemed so yesterday, and anyway, I never learned to ice skate. A bunch of fancily clad skaters twirling about on slippery ice while a Rachmaninoff etude plays in the background seemed like an awful yawn. But alas, dear reader, it appears I'm not entirely bereft of the genteel gene required to appreciate such stuff.   Now don't get me wrong. I'm not going to move heaven and earth to make sure I don't miss the competitive figure

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Jay Clarke, the Manton curator of Prints, Drawings, and Photographs at the Clark Art Institute, is going out with a bang.

Clarke, who is leaving the Clark after nine years to return to the Art Institute of Chicago in her hometown, has curated a show featuring one of the world's finest private collections of drawings: those assembled by New York art dealer and philanthropist Eugene V. Thaw.

Thaw donated his collection of more than 400 drawings to the Morgan Library & Museum in New York, which celebrated the gift with the September 2017 opening of "Drawn to Greatness: Master Drawings from the Thaw Collection," an exhibit that has drawn

You know that lyric from "Home on the Range," where the cowpoke asserts that "seldom is heard a discouraging word?" Well, if you go by the realistic take on the Old West proffered in director/writer Scott Cooper's "Hostiles," the reason no one says anything discouraging is that they're either dead or fighting like crazy to keep from being dead.    While poet Joel Barlow hoped his "Vision of Columbus" (1787) would be our version of "The Iliad," he was premature. There would be 100 more years of conquering the natives before America's character would be formed.   This is a very studied work, contemplative, moody,
