The Colonial Theatre has a long history in Pittsfield. It went into disrepair and has been refurbished beautifully a few years ago. It is worth visiting to see it and to hear its wonderful acoustics. We have seen Arlo Guthrie and James Taylor play there, as well as many other performances. Musicians have voiced their appreciation for the acoustics while... More

Best Venue for a off Broadway show or better yet a concert. Feel like your stepping back in time with seat on all levels having a great view. Upper level seat may me a tad uncomfortable due to the fact they used the original wood benches form the past. We saw George Thorogood there and what a night. Been there... More

nice theater - reasonable price for tickets. Saw a great show in February - Bill Blagg illusionist for a very low price - kids love it! Parking is mimimal close to theater. Lot adjacent is mainly permit parking during weekdays and off street parking is limited so plan to walk a bit unless you arrive very early

A classic three tiered theater with wonderful charm, and a great staff. Just saw Arlo Guthrie celebrate the 50th anniversary of Alice's Restaurant. Spectacular.

We have been to many performances and shows at the Colonial Theater and the most recent one was a performance by an American Idol contestant in the lobby or "garage" as they call it. This performance was wonderfully intimate and we really go to enjoy the closeness of the performers. We have also enjoyed a magic performance in the spring... More

We took our grandsons (teenagers) to the Colonial Theatre in Pittsfield, MA over the school vacation (Feb 2015) to see Bill Blagg - Illusionist. We are always overwhelmed by the absolute beauty of the Colonial. Thanks again to all who supplied $$ and energy to restore this one-of-a-kind venue. The show itself was as stunning as the theatre. Bill is... More

This beautifully restored theater and it's gracious ushers was a treat to visit on 11/19/14, when my real intentions were to aquire the free ski passes to Sugarbush and Smugglers Notch. The sound system was great, new carpeting, helpful ushers, and not a bad seat in the house added to the experience. An added bonus was the blizzard we walked... More

This gilded old theater has been fully restored and offers some of the best entertainment in the Berkshires. It offers excellent regional entertainment - we enjoyed both jazz and country music concerts there - at excellent prices.
