Came to see the productions of Cymbeline with friends in the month of July. Although I don't frequently see Shakespeare plays, I enjoyed this one very much. The theater itself is very nice and small and there are no bad seats in the house.

Attended a daytime performance of A Midsummer's Night Dream by Shakespeare and Co. at The Mount (Edith Wharton's home in Lenox, MA). It was excellent. Low key production with minimal set and costumes, but the acting was good, and the setting in an area called...More

This is a great theater venue and company. We saw a absolutely wonderful production of Shakespeare's Cymbeline. Nobody could walk out of this play and not like Shakespeare. If the rest of their productions are as good as this, the world should know.
