“Shakespeare in the Mountains”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We try to include a performance of a Shakespeare play at the excellent reperatory company every time we are in Lenox. The cast is always professional and we have yet to be disappointed. Besides excellent theater performances this company provides excellent training for college students with a career goal in theater.
You can count on a good show at reasonable prices.

“Some fun holiday laughs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

Small, quaint venue. Building has an interesting exterior that needs a facelift. But, interior is nice and service was very good. Great, up-close place to see an entertaining play

I saw a play in a small theatre (cannot remember the name). My ticket was $25 which was a bargain, and I loved the play.

“Better Every Year”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

It's not just Shakespeare! All the venues are great! We really enjoyed the plays at the Bernstein Theater this summer as well as those at the Founder's Theater. Wonderful place and so professional.
