Attended My Girl Friday last night. Had a great time! Theater has comfortable seating and great visibility, and sound. Acting was superb. Story was good- dialogue was clever and entertaining. The costumes and set were great, too. Service- the theatre left two voicemails on my phone to alert me about a downtown activity that would be redirecting traffic. That is... More

Wonderful play, "Lost in Yonkers", at a nice cozy theatre. All seats are good and the acting matches anything on Broadway. They do need to work on the system for the half price day of tickets as it was way too disorganized by putting your name on a list and then coming back to wait again on line to purchase... More

Was recently at BSC and had the pleasure of seeing His Girl Friday. It was a sweet, old-timey play with some really serious undertones. We are reminded about the plight of the Jews in Depression/World War 2 era Chicago and the funny love story between ace reporters Hildy and Walter. The theatre itself was beyond accessible. No matter where you... More

Barrington Stage has brought year round theatre to Pittsfield, and it is often first rate and entertaining. We went to see This Girl Friday, written by John Guare, and based on The Front Page. It was well staged and acted, and was very entertaining. Most of the plays are terrific, and the venue has excellent visibility. Highly recommended as a... More

My wife and I have attended one performance at the Barrington Stage every summer since 2008. We find the deep and level of the performances to match that of the major theatres in Boston. Because the theatre is small, nearly every seat provides a goof viewing angle. Our most recent visit was to attend, "Lost in Yonkers." Every performer did... More

My wife and I live in New York. We see a fair amount of live theatre. We were unsure what to expect from Barrington Stage Company. We have now seen two productions and are happy to report that each was well staged and performed. This is not Minnie the librarian and Cy the insurance salesman acting in their spare time!... More

My wife and I have done the Barrington now for three summers. We've been to some of the best theatres in the US, and this compares wonderfully--and on occasion, the plays produced there are as good as any we've attended. Quality is consistent and high. It's amazing that this gem is buried in a western Massachusetts old mill town, but... More

This was our third trip to this very professional theatre company. This summer we saw Lost in Yonkers by Neil Simon. The actors were top notch, some of them almost Broadway quality. Although the set was minimal, it didn't matter because the acting held your attention, The theatre itself is medium sized and we've never had a problem seeing or... More
