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".

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.

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
