Although it can be difficult to get individual tickets persevere and you will succeed. We are not able to subscribe but try each year to get tickets. The ambiance and quality of the performances are outstanding. This year we saw Gauthier Dance and they were marvelous.

. . . Go, take a small risk and visit this special place. I know very little about dance but I always enjoy the experience of Jacob's Pillow. There is something very mellow about this woodsy, somewhat idyllic place. And, as a result of coming here in the summer, I now seek out dance performances in my local area during... More

We try to go to a show at Jacob's Pillow every summer in the Berkshires. I am not a connoisseur of modern dance, but this setting is amazing. An old 18th/19th century farm converted in the 30's to a summer dance school and performance space, it has ambiance to spare. Two great dance auditoriums, practice space, and outdoor platform looking... More

We went to see body traffic at Jacob's Pillow. It was very enjoyable. We went to the talk beforehand, which was okay, though somewhat jargony. But the dance was good and the facility nice. It is sort of in the middle of nowhere. Our hotel was 1 hour away on twisty, foggy roads. I would recommend staying in Lee or... More

The only sad thing in this review is the news this week (July 2015) that Ms. Baff, the Pillow's 17-year long leader is leaving. That aside, the Pillow is fantastic. Go to the Inside / Out performance by students. Picnic. Go to your performance. (Then go to the DreamAway Lodge ... but that's a different topic entirely.) Bring a jacket,... More

We were vacationing in the Berkshires rather aimlessly, and a local recommended Jacob's Pillow. It was a bit out of the way, and we aren't big dance fans, but the weather was rainy and we wanted an interesting indoor diversion so we thought why not? We were pleasantly surprised by the gorgeous, well-maintained, upscale venue, and wished we had gotten... More

This is a mecca for those who like dance. We were fortunate to visit with our grandchildren on an evening that a performance by Kulu Mele African Dance and Drum Ensemble (from Philadelphia) was performing in the outdoor venue - excellent entertainment by a very talented group of people. We would definitely return to JP when there was more time... More
