PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The creative forces in Pittsfield didn't have to work hard to convince the chairman of the National Endowment of the Arts that the arts can be a powerful force in community and economic restoration.    Jane Chu was, if anything, way ahead of them.    "We believe that there's something in the arts for everyone and there's something for everyone in the arts," she said, adding, "At the heart of why people want to be in a community is because they want to belong, and they want to find meaning, and they're looking for vitality that may be on the level of looking for things to do but also 'I want to contribute

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — We were downright perplexed as we entered the theater.

How can they possibly turn that nearly empty stage into turn-of-the-century America in all of its complexity? We're supposed to be seeing the great, big musical "Ragtime," but all that is in front of us is a hint of a set bathed in old-fashioned sepia tones. We seem to be in a Victorian house, but there are just a few wooden chairs here and there, an old upright piano off to the right. Perhaps more furniture is under the old canvas tarps draped at the sides of the empty, slightly-raised wooden floor.

Slowly a young boy, who we learn is from a wealthy, suburban white family, emerges

Point of disclosure: I am a lifelong, died-in-the-wool car enthusiast. As a child I spent endless hours on the floor pushing toy cars around, speeding under the kitchen table, through my mother's legs, around the linoleum perimeter, over the saddle leading to the foyer for the long straight to my bedroom. There, circling to the cheers of my other toys, I issued an acknowledging "zoom, zoom, rhoom, rhoom," then scooted back into the hallway and made a hairpin right into the carpeted living room, the off-road part of my imaginary Indy 500.   Thus I know and embrace firsthand the special, magical relationship some of us humans have with the spiritual successor to Old Dobbin,

The summer concert season is virtually upon us, and how lucky are we music lovers to be living right here, in the Berkshires, at what can only be described as "Music Central"?

With programs in Lenox and in Manchester, Vt., concertgoers will have a wide selection of music in a multiplicity of styles to enjoy in venues large and small: from solo jazz piano to the stellar Chris Botti with the Boston Pops, followed by a celebration of beloved show tunes by Rodgers and Hammerstein at Tanglewood. Added to this, Taconic Music offers a feast of chamber music by Strauss and Ravel, and a master class with the distinguished classical cellist/mentor Sharon Robinson.

I kept thinking, "It can't be that ... it's too obvious." Thus were my incredulous musings while trying to figure if Rachel Weisz's title character in director Roger Michell's "My Cousin Rachel" was the husband-murderer her newest suitor initially thought she was. You see, I'm terrible at unraveling mysteries. I've been trying to solve the meaning of life for decades, and still nothing.

So I had to question my suspicion, which in turn became the main reason why this otherwise average motion picture held my interest. That said, Weisz sure can sow the doubt.

Granted, it's possible that, like Sam Claflin's 24-year- old Philip, the wealthy
