(Pittsfield, Mass.) OLLI, the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Berkshire Community College, is bringing together some of the best known Berkshire regional theatre critics this Friday, September 13th to talk about this summer’s theatre season. The panel discussion is free and open to the public, and will be held at 10:30am at the Berkshire Museum, located at 39 South Street in downtown Pittsfield, Mass.
The gathering of critics is a reunion of sorts. They first came together in April of this year as part of OLLI’s annual “Berkshire Performing Arts Preview” course, which looks ahead to the summer cultural season. Both the audience and the critics enjoyed the discussion so much, they decided to do an encore session after the season was over, to discuss the summer theatre offerings of 2019.
Participating critics include:
Peter Bergman, who reviews for Berkshire Bright Focus
Jeffrey Borak, who reviews for the Berkshire Eagle
Dan Dwyer, who reviews for The Berkshire Edge
Macey Levin, who reviews for Berkshire on Stage
Barbara Waldinger, who reviews for Berkshire on Stage
Naomi Spatz and Nancy Vale of OLLI’s Performing Arts Initiative will co-moderate the discussion.
