Impressive offerings, many in number, in this small Berkshire village. Enough to satisfy a New York theater goer. Prices are modest.

We saw the play "Accomplice" which was very good. The whole theater has six rows. I selected the last row which had the aisle in front of me so I had plenty of leg room. Teachers get 20% off the ticket price.

I have seen a lot of theater in my time. I live in NYC, and travel to London. I must say that I have never seen better than here at Shakespeare and Co. The level of acting is as good as anthing I have seen anywhere. Plus, the setting in bucolic Lenox is so lovely.

Just saw The Beauty Queen of Leenane at Shakespeare and Company. A stunning play, very well performed in a beautiful intimate space. We hope to come back again soon.

I do not know what they were trying to prove with this show, but they failed in every way. I was terribly dissapointed with this program.
