We recently saw The Betrothed at Chester Theater and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The play was not the typical frothy and light summer material but a challenging and unusual fairytale like excursion into serious issues. The acting was excellent (especially the woman playing the female parts), set unique and the theatre intimate with no bad seats.
We highly recommend staying for the post theatre chat as the interchange helped explain and amplify the play and its message. As many said we rather wish we'd had the chat before so we could comprehend the denser aspects of the play. We will return as we like to be pushed and like to see the cutting edges of theatre. Well worth the short trip east from the centre of the Berkshires.

We have our first opportunity to see a play in this tiny town in the Bershires. Every seat in the small/intimate theatre has a great view of the stage. They just purchaesd new seats which were also very comfortable. The production was casted broadway actors from New York. I highly recommend this theatre. We also recommend dinner at the "The Dream Away Lodge" in Becket before the play.
