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.

We planned our Berkshires trip so we'd be able to attend "A Little Night Music," and we were not disappointed. The production was flawless, thrilling. The theater itself, over a century old and perfectly restored, was an ideal, jewel box setting for the show. One of the volunteer ushers told us that this city of 60,000 suffered a terrible blow...

Love this place. It reminds me of the great old Broadway theaters with its ornate boxes (photo) and two balconies (photo). Thanks to the good people of Pittsfield for seeing the value of this venue. Great place to see a show. We saw "A Little Night Music." We will be back.

good seats and acoustics, pleasantly restored. Prices fair. Old movie/vaudeville house. The front is a twin to the Michelin shop in W. london UK, now I believe a pricey restaurant
