Now in its third year, "Celebration of Black Voices,” a free four-day festival, running Aug. 11 through 14 on Pittsfield’s West Side, aims to celebrate the local Black community through artistic engagement and by showcasing a mix of professional artists and local talent.
For the last show she will be directing while still BSC’s artistic leader, Julianne Boyd is returning to Sondheim’s elegant 1973 musical about sexual and romantic liaisons among the high-born — and a few low-born — in a community somewhere in turn-of-the-century Sweden.

The joint is truly jumpin’ throughout director/choreographer Jeffrey L. Page’s singular, boldly theatrical treatment of “Ain’t Misbehavin’: The Fats Waller musical,” which opened over the weekend at Barrington Stage Company’s Boyd-Quinson Stage.
