Elizabeth Banks In Boston All Week

1/13/2009 09:53:00 AM
Per my post last week, Elizabeth Banks is going to be in town today at the State House as the keynote speaker for the Commonwealth Awards (here). The Herald spoke with her a bit prior to her arrival and she had some very nice things to say about her hometown and growing up in the area. We also learn that she's going to be here through the weekend.

“The Berkshires was a pretty great place to grow up and Pittsfield was at the heart of it,” she said. “I was very lucky to have found my passion through after-school arts programs,

And then there were the summers sneaking into hoity-toity Tanglewood in nearby Lenox - thanks to all her high school buddies who worked the beer stands or in the parking lots.

“I spent many a night listening to the (Boston Symphony) orchestra, but I was real fond of the Youth Orchestra,” said Banks, who will extend her trip home through the weekend to celebrate her dad’s 60th birthday.

To Ms. Banks - I hope you have a great visit during your time back.
