My View: The Berkshire Hills Are Alive With The Sound Of Michael Feinstein

My View: The Berkshire Hills Are Alive With The Sound Of Michael Feinstein

Since 1905 some of the world’s greatest entertainers have performed on the stage of MAHAIWE in Great Barrington.  Michael Feinstein continued that tradition last night with his performance on it’s historic stage. Mr. Feinstein once again displayed the talents that have built him a dazzling career over the last three decades.  Michael brought his wit, charm, intellect, and spectacular musicianship to the Berkshires, and it was standing room only at the MAHAIWE Performing Arts Center as he sang his classic renditions of The Great American Songbook.  Next stop for Michael is at the club that bears his name just 2 1/2 hours south at Feinstein’s/54 Below.
