Three dog night concert

Fabulous! There are no bad seats here and the acoustics are perfect. No wonder this theater is rated one of the ten best in the world.

High quality acting. The show was great and the seats were terrific. We were able to get 1/2 price tickets which is the way to go!

We've been attending the Berkshire Theater Group offerings for a number of years now in Stockbridge and found their productions really great. This year we took the granddaughters to see the Little Shop of Horrors at the Colonial. The theater is an restored old vaudeville theater and is really nice.

The show was really excellent. The theatre is similar to Northampton Academy of Music theatre, but with more comfortable and better sized seating and layout. Holds a large number of people, and has more than ample toilets. Parking (limited) RIGHT next door and easy access to the Berkshire Museum half a block away.

This is one lovely theatre and amazingly spent thirty years as a stationery supply store until it was restored to its former glory. Worth it to ask for a quick tour during the day when no performance is on. The annex in the old service station is a fabulous refurb, too.

This is a very nice theatre to take in a show, you can see from any location and the volunteers that work there are extremely helpful. You can also get beer and wine in the lobby!
