We went to see "Taking Steps". It was an afternoon well spent. Great comedy and what I loved the most was the cast took time after the show to take questions.

Very nice theatre and a very well done production. Our family went to see Stepping Stairs. The set was very neat and created the image of multiple rooms within the same set by the actions of the actors. This part was really well done and...More

The show was great. We have been to many theatres throughout the country. This was a small theatre but very well run. The presentation was very good. The seats were comfortable and the atmosphere was good. We enjoyed the show.

We experienced the excellent production of Ragtime two weeks ago while on vacation. Just an amazing show with a perfect cast. The Barrington Stage Company blew us away.

Every show we see at Barrington Stage is filled with excellence. The actors are often members of Actor's Equity. The productions have attention to detail; great sets, scenery, music, lighting. The RAGTIME performance we saw recently was real Broadway quality.

Wonderful production of "The Birds". The story was based on Daphne du Maurier's short story, which I haven't read. This production had very little in common with the Hitchcock movie though (great movie, btw!). The acting and set were great, and we really enjoyed the...More

We went to see Ragtime and we were definitely impressed with the stage and the venue. It was much larger (size of a decent Broadway theater) than we expected and it was lovely. The seats were comfortable with more room between rows than typical, the...More
