Shakespeare's plays are the mainstay of this theater company, but other productions are mounted, as well. The actors are first rate, settings are inventive and the venues are comfortable. Food can be purchased on the campus. There are special performances for children to introduce them to Shakespeare specifically and the theater in general. There are usually delightful and, sometimes, hysterical!

Spent an enjoyable Sunday afternoon at the matinee of this play at Shakespeare and Company. Due to melting snow the parking lot was a little muddy but as we were dressed casually, this was not an issue. Looking forward to returning during their summer season.

Broadway quality on a Sunday afternoon in the Berkshires. The Bernstein is a welcoming space. The actors superb. Even the scene change is well done!

I saw the play "Accomplice" here. Very small and intimate venue. We had first row seats and actually felt like we were a part of the cast. The seating was comfortable and facilities were very nice.

The theatre is comfortably small so you can feel a part of the play. The play "Accomplice" was an over the top comedy, and by the last third of the play, I was saying to myself, come on, not another twist? However, the actors were top notch, pulling you in to their character, engaging you in the story, no matter... More

Impressive offerings, many in number, in this small Berkshire village. Enough to satisfy a New York theater goer. Prices are modest.

We saw the play "Accomplice" which was very good. The whole theater has six rows. I selected the last row which had the aisle in front of me so I had plenty of leg room. Teachers get 20% off the ticket price.

I have seen a lot of theater in my time. I live in NYC, and travel to London. I must say that I have never seen better than here at Shakespeare and Co. The level of acting is as good as anthing I have seen anywhere. Plus, the setting in bucolic Lenox is so lovely.

Just saw The Beauty Queen of Leenane at Shakespeare and Company. A stunning play, very well performed in a beautiful intimate space. We hope to come back again soon.

I do not know what they were trying to prove with this show, but they failed in every way. I was terribly dissapointed with this program.
