This theater is absolutely gorgeous. Just do not sit in general admission seats. More uncomfortable than sitting in a lawn chair for an hour or two.

This is a very beautiful theater. I would say it's a real cultural gem. Inside it's small and you feel connected to what's happening on-stage. The seats are very comfortable, the sound is great. We were very pleasantly surprised.

the architecture, beautifully restored, makes this venue a real treasure. Hillary Clinton made it part of her tour to "Save America's Treasures" when she was first lady. And show here is worth going to.

What's not to like? Our seats were great, but in addition they were comfortable and roomy. The sound was good. The restoration will blow you away!

what a beautiful theatre and a wonderful show with well over 100 actors on stage ( and off at times ) . Mostly youg performers. The stars( peter Pan, Captain Hook and Wendy ) all were great. A bit long for a kids show ( just over 2 hours )but our 7 and 8 year olds loved it.

The Colonial Theatre is beautifully restored. The adjacent "garage" was included in the restoration giving space to an ample lobby and plenty of restrooms. We have seen great productions of Broadway shows including " Chorus Line", "Tommy" and "Oklahoma". The Berkshire Theatre Group has also presented workshops on Monday afternoon that have been just delightful.

A great theatre that has been restored to it's former glory. Wonderful reception area, the seating and stage are laid out very well, with no obstructed views, there is also a bar and sitting area. This theatre offers all kinds of entertainment, plays, comedians, musicians, including some famous names.
