[Pittsfield, MA] – Experience art and theater in Downtown Pittsfield with a collaboration between Berkshire Museum and Shakespeare & Company. Saturday, May 6 from 7 pm to 8:30 pm, actors from Shakespeare & Company will take to the galleries of Berkshire Museum in a promenade-style event. Guests are invited to wander the galleries of the Berkshire Museum, encountering a pop-up-style production of monologues, duologues, and songs from Shakespeare’s canon performed with actors performing passages that resonate with the Museum’s art and objects.   
“We are excited to collaborate with Shakespeare & Company to provide the community with an event that can only be experienced at the Berkshire Museum. Visitors will tour the Museum’s collection while enjoying live performances by several trained Shakespearean actors.” said Jesse Kowalski, Berkshire Museum’s Chief Curator. 

 “We couldn’t be happier to already be launching our first partnership with the Berkshire Museum. The museum’s mission is one akin to our own, in that both of our organizations strive to create connections within our communities through storytelling. It’s also exciting that this project coincides with the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s First Folio, the first printed collection of Shakespeare’s plays. This landmark moment in history is currently being celebrated around the world, and we’re so proud the Berkshires have joined the party,” said Jaclyn Stevenson, Shakespeare & Company’s Director of Marketing and Communications.
