The Mahaiwe has a great balance of programming--music, dance, theater, informative talks. It was such a privilege to see jazz pianist prodigy Joey Alexander in May, 2018. Felt I was witnessing something very special in such an intimate theater space. What a memorable and transcendant...More

The Mahaiwe scammed me. There was a lot of commotion and noise when I entered the lobby, which is uncomfortably tiny. I asked to purchase a ticket at the box office, and they only offered me a $50 ticket, the highest price. I think that...More

People come to the Berkshires for many things, culture and arts and seasonal natural experiences, and the Mahaiwe should be included as one of the loveliest theaters. Beautiful architecture and design offset a terrific Paul Taylor Dance Co. production. Worth the visit.

We visited for the Berkshire Film Festival last year and this year. Loved the balcony seating (so old-timey). A thoughtful renovation, pleasurable viewing. Charming and comfortable. Be aware there are lots of stairs up to the balcony if you have an issue with that.
