On a recent visit to picturesque Williamstown, I attended the 2014 edition of the Williamstown Theatre Festival. I had the pleasure of seeing June Moon, a comedic play about the Tin Pan Alley era (this play originally premiered on Broadway in 1929). June Moon is essentially a hybrid of a musical and a comedy; while songs do not dominate the... More

A modern theatre will productions that make you laugh, cry, and feel great to be alive. The staging is super good as are the sets. There is nothing lacking they even have the best cast available.

We were in Williamstown for 4 nights and saw the 2 plays that they were showing. Very professional. There are 2 stages and we were at both. There's pretty much not a bad seat in the house. There's parking right there if you get there early enough. If not, there's additional parking across the street. It was great.

We just attended a performance by the PigPen Theatre Co. at the Williamstown Theatre Festival. If this performance is indicative of their normal shows, you should attend one of next summers' productions at this outstanding regional theatre. Go early and talk with some of the interns for more information on their experiences and the history of this 60+ year old... More

I attended three shows this summer in my hometown of Williamstown. Not a stranger to this venue by any means, I am pleased every year when they offer great shows, world known actors, and many up and coming stars. It is amazing to see the staging with incredible costumes, sets that are unbelievable, great acoustics, and all for a minimal... More

We enjoyed the show very much. We haven't been to this theater in many years and were pleasantly surprised. It was as good as being at a Broadway show. The entire cast was excellent and the singing and acting was first class.

This is a theatre that has been offering sold-out performances with established stars and new talent for many years. Not a bad seat in the house.

Great venue, very professional productions, first class actors. As good as it gets off Broadway. Must get tickets in advance but worth the effort. Check on line.

The PigPen Theater is an example of the Williamstown Theater Fesitival's effort to expand the world of theater. 7 guys recently graduated from Carnegie Mellon's theater program provided a thoroughly entertaining evening. ... Neat venue in a quaint college town in NW Mass. The theater, however, is anything but quaint.This show ran 2 months "off broadway". When in the northern... More

My wife and I recently traveled to Williamstown to see a performance of "The Visit" at the Williamstown Theatre Festival. There isn't a bad seat in the house at the theater. I am not a theater critic, but trust me, from the cast, to the set and the music, it was wonderful. The parking garage made for easy entry and... More
