This theater consistently offers the best plays in the Berkshires. Great costumes, great sets, great variety of plays, terrific performers, affordable ticket prices, and a real commitment to live performances...even in the winter time when we are somewhat culturally deprived. There is no need to go to NYC to see shows. See them here in Pittsfield!

Friends took us to this delightful theatre last September (2013). There is not a bad seat in the house and the interior is well done. You will enjoy your visit.

I cannot wait for the summer to arrive...so I can once again begin to see the plays at Barrington Stage Company. My husband and I have been seeing theater here for many years...and feel that a subscription is the best bet. Both venues for BSC provide theater at it's best. I am always blown away by the scenery and props,... More

If you are visiting the Berkshires check the calendar for the current play schedule at the main theatre and second stage( plays being fully developed). Julianne Boyd the director brings top notch actors here and the plays are almost always we'll received- often reviewed in the NYT. The prices are a fraction of Broadway tickets.

This a most professional group whose productions are excellent. Julie Boyd can compete with many NYC shows. They are well acted and staged. A real class act. Don't miss it.

Enjoyed a performance of Clybourne Park last evening at this wonderful gem of a theater in downtown Pittsfield. This amazing theater presents top rate stage plays, like the one last evening, and beautifully stage musicals all in an intimate,comfortable theater space. Who needs to go to New York!
