I have yet to go to a musical or play performed at Barrington Stage Company that was not top rate. The actors and actresses are fantastic. The shows are reasonably priced with options for preview performance pricing options.

One of the great cultural venues in the Berkshires, Barrington Stage consistently offers excellent theater, both old and new. Many of their original productions have gone on to success in New York. We are lucky to have it in our midst.

We’ve attended the “10X 10” plays in March for a few years. Always fun and well performed. Also, “Pirates of Penzance”, “Royal Family of Broadway”, and “West Side Story”. All very entertaining and well staged. We’ve never been disappointed.
