Mass Live Arts (MLA) is a festival of experimental theater and performance at the Daniel Arts Center at Bard College at Simon’s Rock in Great Barrington, Massachusetts.

ADVISORY: Explicit, potty-mouth language throughout much of this episode,

MLA is dedicated to presenting large-scale bold new works of contemporary performance in the Berkshires. MLA is also committed to fostering the creation of new American works through development residencies culminating in work-in-progress showings. This residency is for highly-talented companies or performing artists in need of space and time to create new work.

The Williamstown Chamber of Commerce sends outgoing Interim Executive Director Sandra Thomas off with a bang. Well, actually, Sandra organized the Town’s Fourth of July celebration, so I suppose you could say she will be conducting her own brass band (two, in fact) as she steps down from this post. She describes the many, many area activities occurring this weekend, many of which can be enjoyed at no cost.
