What a rare and delicious treat – a large Boston Pops Orchestra playing Leonard Bernstein's musical "On the Town" behind a stellar Broadway cast dancing and singing to perfection. The performance took place at Tanglewood on the evening of July 7 before a huge, enthusiastic audience. It was part of this summer's Bernstein 100 birthday celebration. Even the weather was in the cool, comfortable 60s.

The musical, Bernstein's first, is based on Jerome Robbins's ballet idea, "Fancy Free." With book and lyrics by Betty Comden and Adolph Green, "On the Town" premiered in 1944 during World War II. Between the movie and the four major Broadway

Berkshires Beat: Kids Place Hosts Annual Jimmy Bernardo Memorial Ride
02:13PM / Monday, July 09, 2018
Remembering Jimmy

The 23rd annual Jimmy's Ride to benefit victims of child abuse will be held on Saturday, July 28. This annual event is held in memory of Pittsfield native Jimmy Bernardo.

Three and a half years later, the Bernardo family was able to find peace after the Pittsfield Police captured a suspect when he tried to abduct another young girl in Pittsfield. The suspect subsequently pled guilty to murdering Jimmy and is serving life in prison.

Jimmy's Ride will start at Berkshire County Kids Place once again this year. Register in

By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
05:15AM / Sunday, July 08, 2018
  PITTSFIELD, Mass. — If you want things to change, you need to do something different.   That's Andrea Harrington's view when it comes to reforming the criminal justice system.
