We had heard so many great reviews of this play that we bought tickets last minute. We were pleasantly surprised that our seats were not bad at all considering the late date and lack of availability. The acting and staging were excellent. The story line was gripping and very moving. Based on a true story I was shocked by the... More

My wife and I come every year. The productions are always professional and fresh. The performers range from top Broadway pros to up and coming young talent. I have yet to be disappointed. The theater is small enough that any seat is a good view. The staging, scenery, lighting and costumes are top notch. Thanks Barrington!

My wife and I have been to Barrington Stage Company a number of times and have yet to be anything but thoroughly pleased with the performances. We've been treated to a variety of play genres from comedies , to musicals, to dramas and they all have been professionally delivered by the cast members and crew. Julie Boyd does an excellent...

First, I'll be fair and say we have seen several excellent productions at Barrington Stage in the past. I have even recommended it to friends, tourists, etc. Our most recent experience, however, changed my mind about this theater. My wife has a temporary disability (surgery related), which limits her walking ability. Barrington Stage has no elevator and, given that so... More

My wife and I just saw the world premiere of American Son, a very well written and timely play, which was expertly staged and performed. It was our first visit to the Boyd-Quinson Mainstage theatre, and we were very impressed with the venue which has comfortable seats and wide aisles. We recommend parking in the small lot across the street... More

I am always amazing at the wonderful talent that comes to this theatre in Pittsfield. Everything I have seen here has been nothing but top notch performances. We just saw American Son and were very moved by it.

Barrington Stage has consistently excellent shows. (Okay I didn't love Man of La Mancha, but that was the show, not their staging of it). One of the best "Fiddler" stagings ever. And some really intriguing original works, too. Great cast, easy to get in and out and quite affordable too. Try it if you're in the area.

A MUST show. Magical .... All actors were over the top, but especially my favorite, Jarrod Spector ! This show is going to Broadway.

Years i lived here without realizing where Barrington Stage actually was - and now I try to go regularly. The dance quality of musicals is astounding. The acting superior. I was literally shocked at how good (which might be a tad unfair)... but this is a hidden gem and very worth supporting. I've seen too many shows to list but... More
