It was the first time I traveled to the Williamstown Theater Festival and am ashamed to say that I was not aware of the quality of the topnotch actors who play there. The play was "Living on Love," w/ Renee Fleming in her first acting role. The play was very lightweight, frivolous even, but acted SO well and staged and... More

Enjoyable evening with Renee Fleming and Doug Sills in "Living on Love." Only seats available were in upper balcony, but views and sound were fine.

The theater and performances are always outstanding. Once inside the theaters are excellent. We saw "Fool for Love" by Sam Shepard at a Thursday matinee. Excellent. Getting in and out of the theater is a nightmare. - The patrons were mostly old or very old (we among them). 75% are dropped off and some cars had numerous people with canes... More

Went to Williamstown Theater Festival for the first time and loved the venue (we saw a play on the main stage). There is plenty of parking at the venue. We will be sure to come back next year. But the ticket go fast! So if interested, start looking at the website in May.

This is the essential summer theater. The plays are beautifully produced with excellent acting all around. Top notch directors, designers, technicians and actors take a break from the city to do what they love in this supportive environment. The casts have great energy and devoted audiences. Take a chance on a new play or a new production of an older... More

The plays presented in Williamstown are consistently of high quality and the actors are often noteworthy. Do not miss the experience of high quality entertainment in a most beautiful setting. Ordering tickets on line is a breeze and then you just pick them up at the box office. The $3 per ticket fee is annoying but really, what's $3 if... More

Saw June Moon there in July 2014- what a beautiful and first class theatrical experience. A great place to go to in the Berkshires.

Great acting, wonderful sets, intimate theater (only seats around 700 I think). We really enjoyed the evening. Did find the curtain call a little limited- the entire cast came out to great applause, but that was it--no individual recognition...and we as others, were ready to applaud for the individual leads (who were fabulous!).
