WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Call it the Clark Art Institute Phase 2.1.   The original plan for the museum's expansion called for a grand opening that featured two exhibits in the Clark's new special exhibition spaces along with renovated and improved gallery spaces devoted to 19th century and Old Masters paintings and the decorative arts.   That plan got scaled back when the Clark and the National Gallery of Art decided to delay the opening of a traveling exhibit of abstract expressionism.   On Saturday, the new Clark finally presents "Make It New: Abstract Paintings from the National Gallery of Art, 1950-1975."   Last month's opening of the rest of

Come August, the summer high season for classical music blossoms, with a glorious profusion of "fiori musicali" throughout the region.

The mind reels with the diversity of it all: opera in concert, concerto and symphony, the ever-popular John Williams' Film Night – all at Tanglewood; a recital for cello and piano of Baroque masterpieces and more at The Clark Art Institute; an all-Beethoven orchestral concert in Manchester, and a spectacular piano recital at Tannery Pond.

Read below for the details.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — As the calendar turns to August, the days get shorter and evenings get a little bit darker — particularly at the Williamstown Theatre Festival.   The WTF this week wraps up an 11-day run for the Sam Shepard drama "Fool for Love" on the Nikos Stage and launches the musical "The Visit" on its Main Stage.   The former looks at twisted love and desperation in the American West. The latter is a tale of diabolical revenge in a small town.   Neither is what you might characterize as light summer fare.   But WTF Producer Stephen Kaus said the confluence of the two shows, which will share the '62 Center for three days, is

  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

Stunning!

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Williamstown Theatre Festival is not necessarily known to be as community-minded as some of the year-round theater companies in the Berkshires. But they do stage a piece of free theater every year, and this year's offering was "Robin Hood," performed in the Poker Flats area of Williams College. On a lovely and cool opening night, Noelle and I went to see the play.

I'm not a theater critic, and this column is not meant to be a theater review. It is meant to give families information on whether particular plays would interest their children. However, with this play, I'm finding it difficult to separate the two.

Homo sapiens and their great ape cousins clash in the latest iteration of the 'Planet of the Apes.'

In a perfect circumstance, we would take all the politicians, seat them at little desks in a cute kindergarten classroom, and make them watch director Matt Reeves' "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes."

Graham crackers and milk would be served. No popcorn or cheese nachos. OK ... maybe gummy bears. The hope is that the allegory, a politically savvy heir to George Orwell's "Animal Farm," would teach them something about what the sane folks on this Earth are
