Wonderful production and interpretation of The Tempest performed in an outdoor theater. Even fun for the kids. Shakespeare is alive and well.

We saw the last production of The Tempest for the season. The actors were outstanding, as was the whole production - staging, interpretation, music.... I found the whole thing emotionally powerful and aesthetically satisfying

I look forward to summertime in the Berkshires, including the productions at Shakespeare &Company. They do a great job year after year. The current production of The Tempest is no exception. Staged in an outdoor garden with an intimate audience, it was a delightful performance.

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.
