Best theatre experience in the Berkshires

We've attended quite a few play, some we liked, others we did not. However, the acting was uniformly good.

We always try to see shows every summer. Barrington Theater has so much to offer to everyone. Some of the shows have even made it down to New York! You just never know....Great entertainment for a fraction of Broadway....

Went to see "Camping with Henry & Tom" at Barrington while on vacation in the area. For a local theater, this place does an amazing job. The acting was top-notch, and the staging excellent. We were thoroughly entertained. Nice job, Barrington!

Just saw Camping with Henry and Tom, on the main stage - outstanding performance about an outing with Henry Ford, Thomas Edison and President Warren Harding - somewhat based on a real situation. VERY TIMELY for today's politics in the US!

We took our son with us to see Tribes & the play was a big hit with all of us. Thought-provoking, humorous with lots of moving moments. Excellent acting by the whole cast, but especially the girlfriend who spun through difficult transitions between hearing & near-deafness & translating with ease. You can get $10.00 off the already reasonable ticket price... More

Have yet to attend a performance that did not measure up to Broadway standards. Great staging. New plays well produced and acted.

Excellent production of a play about hearing disabled and affect on relations. Some humor interspersed, but basically serious treatment.

We see a show by Barrington Stage Company every time we visit The Berkshires. This time we saw Broadway Bounty Hunter. Very funny and entertaining. A very enjoyable evening.

First encounter with Barrington Stage Co.., but not my last. I have never seen a better production of a Gilbert & Sullivan production. The theater is small and without obstructions. Excellent acoustics. Great sets and lighting. Actors first rate and well directed. I'm planning to see their next show, Tribes.

Thank RSG-foodie
