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.

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.

We were in the Nikos theater. Although I did not enjoy the play I saw I really enjoyed the venue. Parking was free and easy. Great space to wait for the show to start. Comfortable seats and great sight lines Will return for another production

everyone writes (deservedly!!!) about the main stage productions, but a well planned visit to the WTF can be so much more. Whether Friday afternoon play readings to late night cabaret to directors workshops to so much more, this is really an institution that deserves your...More
