A beautiful, new, and very comfortable theatre right in downtown Williamstown MA. Parking is easy and there are plenty of restaurants, shops and other entertainment nearby. The Williams College is excellent, and free, we never miss it after eating at "The Purple Pub".

This theater has excellent shows. The acting is top notch. The performances I have seen have been outstanding. Love the location--on the campus of Williams College. The theater itself is one of the nicest facilities I have seen. Don't think there is a bad seat...More

The WTF has departed from tried- and-true to giving new works a place to flourish. Lots of fun, short runs, new talent, great all around experience.

It was another wonderful theater experience at the Williamstown Theatre Festival! Recently my daughter and I attended the play, "The Closet" which we thoroughly enjoyed. The talented cast did a superb job and kept the audience interested and laughing throughout the entire play. They always...More

I recently saw the WTF’s premiere of the musical, Lempicka, and continue to be disgusted at how this once great venue has fallen from grace. One would have thought that a show about the great artist, Tamara Lempicka, would have at least found a stunning...More

We saw the second production of the 2018 season- a musical Lempicka. It was excellent but then I have never been disappointed by a production at the WTF. See this remarkable play if you can

NBPINVT, thank you for trying to help. I check out your suggestion and the place looks great, just what we are looking for. Unfortunately, the end of the week we want to rent is already booked for three days. I'll look for something similar in that area. Thank you again.
