We saw "Breaking the Code" and were delighted with both the production and the theater itself. The staging was very austere, which suited the topic really well, and the entire cast was brilliantly cast for each role. We were all moved and felt it was worth the drive. Another nice feature is that the little town itself has a nice... More

There is nothing better than seeing a show at any of the theaters. Great summer theater with terrific actors. You will not be disappointed. Have been to the different theaters many times.

Went for Kiss Me Kate and found it extraordinary! The theater company deserves highest praise. All Equity actors, their experience and talent shows. Fully orchestrated, with an old-fashioned pit in front of the stage, making the live music very much part of the attraction of the show. The theater itself is accessible, especially in the higher-price seats, which are only... More

We make a point to go to Barrington Stage Company in the summer as their productions are new, interesting, and well-done. We typically go to the St. Germain Stage.

Broadway musicals at Pittsfield prices. How do they do it? The talent is first class. The voices are perfect. The orchestra is worth the price alone. You'll love it.

Saw Kiss Me Kate there in July 2014. Top rate performers in an established theater company. They always have a great list of shows throughout the summer.

Last season "On the Town", this year "Kiss me Kate". Broadway caliber, theatre small enough that there are no bad seats, first class cast, excellent dancers, what more to say?

Saw Kiss Me Kate, which unfortunately for everyone else has finished its run. The troupe's quality was phenomenal, I thought Broadway quality and so did those around me. The sound adjustment was a tiny bit off with live orchestra a bit loud compared to singers, but otherwise the production was perfect. The theatre is very small so even balcony seats... More
