Wonderful theater, Pirates was of superb quality. I'm so glad to have this theater so close to me. There is always a good selection of shows that are well produced.

From the opening to the closing, the acting, dancing , costuming and singing were wonderful. Th staging was great and the pit orchestra was very professional I kept asking my self if I was really in a regional theater.

The fresh faced Pirates of Penzance at Barrington Stage Company was a pure delight. After raves in the Times and Boston press I can hardly add more except to say I pray the show goes on to Broadway so I can experience it again! By the way this was my 17 year old son's first G&S and he left singing... More

My wife and I loved the widely different productions. Peerless a new play by Jiehae Park about murderous twin Korean-American Hugh school girls plotting to get into an elite college inspired by McBeth and Pirates of Penzance, the G & S romp.

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.

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!
