Was looking forward to Romeo and Juliet at the Mount after last years delightful production of A Midsummer Nights Dream. Very disappointed in the overall quality this year. Some of the actors were familiar faces from MSND but collectively this cast was not as strong as the ensemble from last summer. Mediocre at best.

We were really looking forward to this production, in part because my college-aged son requested to see as much Shakespeare as possible and I so wanted him to have a great experience. But we were all very disappointed in this production - Brutus in particular seemed very miscast and weak, and of course that's a pivotal role. Too bad.

We have been attending Shakespeare & Company for many years and have always been pleased with their productions. However, the current production of "Julius Caesar" was tremendously disappointing and the worst we have attended there. We were going to see one of the other plays there this summer, but after this fiasco, we will stick with the Barrington Stage in... More

Bring your own chairs! The show was excellent and the 6 actors who portrayed all of the characters did a fabulous job. We truly enjoyed this performance.

Drove into town and went straight to the Lenox Library to see what they had available for 1/2 price tickets. We were so fortunate to have arrived right before they started selling, and we were able to get two great seats for A Midsummer Night's Dream. The play was fantastic! Lots of fun - the actors are all so impressive... More

"The Complete Works of William Shakespeare, Abridged" was a hoot. Three very hard working actors made this production a huge success. We had a great time. The Tina Packer Stage was an excellent venue, intimate with good sight lines. Shakespeare and Company is first-rate, very professional entertainment. Expect the best! That's what you'll get. A must-see when you're out in... More

This is a place that has tremendous variety of world class theater-from classic Shakespeare to comedy, and new productions. The price of tickets is amazingly low for the quality and the variety of shows being produced at the same time makes you want to come back over and over all year long. We have never been disappointed. And we have... More

It's not "just" shakespeare either - many original works, some suitable for the kids. Great venue, intimate and few "bad" seats

Shakespeare's Will is a blockbuster one-woman show starring Kirsten Wold. If you are at all interested in Shakespeare's private life, see this play for the acting alone. The playwright takes the only three facts known about Anne Hathaway and creates a riveting story that is portrayed by a consummate artist.

We have been to Shakespeare & Company performances many time and always enjoy. If you are going up this summer, you MUST see The Complete Works of Shakespeare (abridged). Well staged, well acted, clever and very funny
