Beautiful Theater!

We recently attended a production at the Williamstown Theatre Festival. We were in the main theatre and it is beautiful! The production was very good too.

Two stages play traditional and experimental plays. Choose a well-known play or try something new by upcoming playwrights. Either way, you'll have a great theatrical experience.

We like the ability to see interesting and diverse productions. Because it's a festival, there is a sense of the audience contributing preparing a show for a possible moves to a bigger venue. It's also fun to see established actors like Audra MacDonald in this intimate setting. We've also seen actors just getting started like Mamie Gummer.

Why? - The theaters are beautiful, in a beautiful building, in a beautiful place - There are plenty of non-theater things to do nearby - Lots of great restaurants within walking distance - Affordable - Fast drive...

This was our second year attending the festival, last year we saw two shows ("Living on Love" and "Fool For Love") that both went on to B'way (First one played earlier this year, second one opens in the fall). This past weekend we saw "An Intervention" (with Justin Long) and "Moon for the Misbegotten" (Eugene O'Neill play starring Audra McDonald).... More

Reputation well- deserved. Almost never am I disappointed. The locals who are budget conscious can look into volunteering in exchange for a show.

Saw Audra McDonald in Moon for the Misbegotten with a terrific supporting cast. Production was brilliant. But the seating is uneven with some obstructed views and side sections that are awkwardly positioned for an uncomfortable night. If you go, choose center seating only regardless of the level or else you'll leave with a stiff neck.

This summer theater has been one of my favorites for years. The productions are very professional. The scenery, the production staff are superb. The actors are all wonderful. Many productions have gone directly to Broadway. A special place.

In it's 61st year, the productions continue to engage, enthral, educate and excite audiences of all ages. It is a place where nationally and internationally known actors come to collaborate with writers, directors, producers, and tech geniuses to create outstanding works which have, this year, either their...
