For starters, Williamstown is a picturesque and pristine New England town, you can't go wrong just visiting the town itself, but you throw in exemplary theater and WOW! I was only able to attend one performance this year, Dracula the Un-Dead...it was the free open air theater and it was a wonderful evening, beautiful set, amusing performances and costuming...a bit...

Most wonderful production. It's going to Broadway and it should. Saw it first on opening weekend. Had to take my 18 year old daughter to see it and the theatre has a benefactor who pays for young people 18 and under to attend any Friday night performance with an adult who buys their own ticket. That is what we did....returning... More

The grounds are beautiful, even the parking area, and the new theatre is fabulous. Outside is serene and casual, yet elegant.

With superb casts and sets, the quality of these shows rival what Broadway offers. In fact, some performances here are on their way to Broadway for their next venue. High class all the way and with affordable digs, good restaurants, and so many other activities nearby, it is a great place to be.

This is not summer stock, and the local let's get together and put on a show in the barn. These are professionals, many from Broadway and Off Broadway putting on some serious theater. The theaters themselves are comfortable with good sight lines.

We saw Johnny Baseball our first vacation night in the Berkshires. Awesome. Williamstown Theater puts on top of the line plays with top of the line actors. Never been disappointed in 20 years of seeing plays here.

When you bring the best people in theatre together with a dedicated staff and house it in a gorgeous location, you end up with one of the top theatre festivals in the country. We saw a slew of quality shows, bumped into theatre friends from NYC and had great interactions with the WTF staff at every turn. Can't wait to... More

We make it point to see at least one play at the Williamstown Theatre during our annual visit to the Berkshires. The two theatres are beautifully appointed and the actors are true professionals. The last two shows we saw were being considered for Broadway. It takes awhile for Williamstown to list the summer schedule and individual tickes are really not... More
