First-rate productions with Broadway actors in a great venue, located in the prettiest town in the Berkshires. Love coming early and relaxing in the lounge chairs outside the theatre. Book tix early as they are often sold out.

Just saw Romance musical there and loved it. Some weak parts in the writing but the music and lyrics and production very enjoyable. We always love coming here. Both theatres in the building are small enough that any seat is good.

The WTF concept works every time for me. The play we saw was a musical with the added feature of original movie clips used to enhance the story. The costumes, voices, acting, and creativity of the story were all top notch. The set was creative...More

It is such a treat to go to Williamstown Theatre Festival. The facilities are outstanding. Saw three shows this season… Two were good and one was just OK. Can't win them all! The staff is always terrific as well.
