“"On the Town" -- Broadway quality show.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

Outstanding show. "On the Town" is a 1944 piece by Leonard Bernstein and Comden&Green. Cast was outstanding. New York Broadway quality singing and dancing. Great sets.... High energy.

Seating is terrific with more than enough leg room. Sound quality superb. Nothing could have been better.

“A great venue for wonderful theater!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

It has been my pleasure to see a multitude of plays over the past 5 years. Each one has been wonderful and some have moved on to NYC. I love the intimacy of the smaller stage, however the large theater is equally as terrific. I feel so lucky to have this resource so close to my house. I often go on my own, not willing to forego the experience because there is no one available to go with me.

“Exceptional Theatre”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

Once a small theatre whose home was a high school, this is one of the most exceptional theatres, not just in the Berkshires, but in MA. Classical, new works, dramas, comedies, and musicals make for a wonderful season.

“Hot experience in a cold theater”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

This is a wonderfully professional theater experience in an up-and-coming Pittsfield. The "On the Town" show that we saw last Friday was as good as anything in a major city. But bring your sweater or wrap; the theater is extremely well air-conditioned - too much for us.

“Dr. Ruth - All the Way”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

Debra Jo Rupp gave an outstanding performance in this one-woman portrayal of Dr. Ruth. We loved the show, the location and the theater.
