Quality theater in a quaint New England town

We saw two terrific shows with top notch acting. Celebrity sightings both in the shows and at the local restaurants. Good dining options but not much else to do in town. Great... read more

Very good location for plays. Very cold air conditioning. Romance Novels for Dummies was not good. See another choice.

Amazing to see Broadway actors like Brenden F. O'Byrne and Leila Robbins in a small theatre in a new exciting play. Or see Marisa Tormei in a crackling production of a Tennessee Williams Classic. Always something good to see at Williamstown Theatre Festival

Each time I attend this theater in my home town I am dismayed that the audience is primarily out of towners. Affordable, enjoyable, and right in my back yard. So far the plays I have attended this year have been top notch. Famous actors mixed with locals and apprentices have captivated me at each performance. There isn't a bad seat... More

This large, comfortable, and attractive theater offers a variety of productions--from free readings of plays not yet in production, to premieres of plays by young playwrights, to revivals of classics such as The Rose Tattoo. I just participated in a weekend trip sponsored by the Princeton Adult School and the McCarter Theater that included 2 plays and one reading, as... More

Our annual visit to the Berkshires would not be complete without seeing at least one play. The surroundings are lovely and theatre is top notch. We just saw Marisa Tomei in The Rose Tattoo and it was a fabulous performance.

One of the great summer theatre venues in the country - saw two wonderful plays during our visit - The Rose Tattoo with Marisa Tomei (some parts good but the rest so-so) and a new play Cost of Living, a moving stirring and stunning piece of theater!

Just saw Rose Tattoo at the Williamstown Theater Festival. The venue is intimate yet the talented performers who are drawn to this theater make for a singularly outstanding experience. Marisa Tomeii is engertic, engaging, and perfect as the lead character and the large cast was fantastic to a person. Set design, music, all added to the effect. Highly recommend this... More

What a gem of a Festival! Was here to visit my son who is an Apprentice for the season. Saw "The Rose Tattoo" and was truly stunned and in awe of the cast and their performances. This was a beautiful production worthy of a Broadway engagement. If you are in town and can get to a show here - don't... More
