Jacob’s Pillow Preps for Summer 2013 at Stonover Farm

Fiona Breslin reports from Lenox.
The Jacob’s Pillow 2013 season hasn’t started quite yet, but that didn’t stop fans and supporters of the historic dance festival from singing its praises on Thursday, February 28. The Pillow and Stonover Farm, inn owner Suky Werman (pictured left with poet Gabriel Squailia), and her husband Tom Werman, hosted a friendly cocktail reception for the Pillow community and business partners, with Pillow staff in attendance. The evening offered a preview of the 2013 festival season, which features tap, modern, jazz, and ballet performances from worldwide talent, including Brazil’s Compagnie Käfig, Dance Theater of Harlem, the Martha Graham Dance Company, Los Angeles-based Bodytraffic, and more. The evening also offered guests the chance to learn about Jacob’s Pillow and its numerous free youth and adult community programs, and interact with fellow friends and supporters of the beloved, longest running dance festival in America. Select tickets for summer performances are on sale now.
