Went to see previews of The Mystery of Irma Vep. The play is set in a "dark and stormy night" and the night we went to see the show provided its own "special effects" of thunder and heavy rain on the roof of the theater. It was a great effect that could not have been replicated without the cooperation of... More

Marg Helenberger, from the TV CSI series, was the featured actor in The Other Place. The production deals with the hallucinations, paranoia, repetitions, and confusion of dementia as well as the rare lucid days. Although the role of Juliana was demanding and very well acted, the play was difficult to follow.

If the weather was better, could have walked from the Hotel to the venue. Parking was difficult for some who parked down hill and the rain caused them to get stuck in the mud.

Saw this play in the Unicorn Theater. A very intimate setting, and the play was top notch. The cast was excellent, and they created a nice mood for the production starting with the walk into the theatre and continuing through the intermissions.

Quality Summer Stock Theater. Theater provides small intimate venues, great sight lines and acoustics. Another great Berkshire cultural event.

We saw the community production of Peter Pan in the Colonial Theatre. This is a truly lovely theatre, and the production was excellent!

We were able to score tickets to this although they were sold out. We went to the Box Office on a chance, Had to wait until one minute before the show but we got a seat! Great show.

This is the place to go to on vacation in the Berkshires. We always go to at least one play at The Berkshire Theater Festival each July.

We have seen most of the productions that have been put on in the Fitzpatrick Main Stage and the Unicorn Theater this season and each of them has been very well done. If we had to pick a favorite it would probably be The Cat and the Canary. The cast of young people put on a first class performance and... More

We saw "The Cat and the Canary" at the Unicorn Theater. I was a fun evening which started even before you got into the building. Actors from the company, dressed in their stage clothes were wandering around looking spooky. The set was wonderful and the company made quite a production of changing the scenery during the two intermissions which added... More
