    Of Beauties and Beasts

      Bizarre, whimsical, uncanny, and fantastic: These are the adjectives to describe the works in the new show at Troy’s Clement Art Gallery, when the human form is depicted alongside various animal creatures in 30 paintings, drawings and sculptures. The artists whose work is in the show include Claus Brusen, Jon Christopher Gernon, Russell Gordon, [...]

    Lionel Richie

      As Paul McCartney proved earlier this month, if an artist has a great back catalog, a greatest-hits show can be a potent experience. We’re not saying Lionel Richie is another McCartney, but his songbook is pretty darn impressive. And when he takes the stage at SPAC Friday night, he’s going to play your most-wanted [...]

    Saratoga Choral Festival

      In past years, the Saratoga Choral Festival has featured works by some of the European greats. This year however, the festival will be taking a slightly more star-spangled route. Works by American composer Aaron Copland will highlight the bill this Sunday, followed by music from one of the most acclaimed American conductor-composers, Leonard Bernstein. [...]

    Circa

      The times have changed: One dance critic has pronounced that “Circa has reinvented circus the way Cique du Soleil did decades ago . . . but the young company is way cooler.” You can judge for yourself when the Australian company return to Jacob’s Pillow beginning Wednesday, performing their new work S in the [...]

    Design for Living

      Beginning Wednesday, the Berkshire Theatre Group will give a sly, sophisticated look at romance with Nöel Coward’s romantic comedy-a-trois Design for Living. It’s about an artist, a playwright and an interior designer who decide to mix friendship, love and sex in ways that are both funny and, occasionally, poignant. Design for Living is directed [...]

    Bolshoi Ballet

      The Bolshoi Ballet will make their SPAC debut this week with four performances of Don Quixote on the amphitheater stage. The legendary Russian company will be accompanied by a full orchestra (which The New York Times praised as glorious), and each show will be preceded by an artist talk. The cast features Maria Alexandrova [...]

    Stephin Merritt

      It’s hard to say which local rock celeb contributes most to Hudson’s growing cultural cachet: Tommy Stinson, Meshell Ndegeocello, Melissa Auf der Maur . . . the list continues to grow. And Magentic Fields frontman Stephin Merritt is quietly doing his part. Merritt’s Friday set at Helsinki Hudson will register as a hometown gig [...]

    Cage the Elephant

      Cage the Elephant fill some long-lost niche in music that’s lain dormant for quite some time, and frontman Matt Schultz cross-dresses in a fashion Iggy Pop would be proud of. The Kentucky-bred band Cage the Elephant like to trip out and intrigue, giving off Nirvana-esque vibes but with weirder music videos and no cult [...]

    James Cotton

      Seventy years of living, eating, breathing and performing the blues does not have James Cotton down. Cotton will be in Schenectady this Sunday, sure to blow away his woes on his renowned harmonica. Cotton and his harp have had many tales to tell: They’ve worked with many Grammy Award winners, Cotton was awarded one [...]
