Live Theatre

'62 Center for Theatre & Dance - Williamstown Theatre Festival Venue
No, I'm not talking about Grafton Town Meetings.  I'm referring to the professional live thespian variety.  I knew about the Williamstown Theatre Festival, but surfed the Web to find out what other nearby venues exist to add to my retirement bucket list which kicks off in June.   I'm excluding those to the west of the Plateau, since I'll be programming my vehicle's computer to avoid that direction whenever suitable alternatives exist to the east of the Plateau.  (We don't need to go there)
  • Oldcastle Theatre Company - Bennington, Vermont:  Formed by five New York actors in 1972.  Entering its 44th season, Oldcastle has put on over 300 productions.
  • Shakespeare & Company - Lenox, Massachusetts: "One of the largest Shakespeare festivals in the country.... past participants include actors from Moscow Arts Theatre, the Berliner Ensemble, the Royal Shakespeare Company, the National Theatre of Great Britain, The Shakespeare Festival of Stratford, Ontario, the Queensland Shakespeare Ensemble..."
  • Williamstown Theatre Festival - Williamstown, Massachusetts: Honored with the Tony Award for Outstanding Regional Theatre.  Draws really big name professional actors and actresses.  Not inexpensive, but most definitely world class theatre. On the campus of Williams College in the '62 Center for Theatre & Dance.
