Julie's bites

Very nice performance center. Small but looks like areal old fashioned theater but with comfortable seats and good sound. Update: on my second visit I learned a bit more history. The theater was built in 1905, in 1930 it was converted to a movie house , in 2005 it was fully restored.

Pamela Mitchell

Such a beautiful venue! I came here for the free showing of 'its a wonderful life'. The temperature was perfect and very clean. Pricing is slightly high in my opinion for some of the performances and some of them are appropriately priced. It is definitely worth coming At least once. I can only imagine the acoustics!

Marybeth Kennedy

This magnificent old theater was beautifully renovated some years ago and once again brings live productions of music, dance, opera, and cinema to the Berkshires. Terrific venue!

The great place to see a live show or a piped in performance from somewhere else. Beautifully restored, the place has pretty good sound, and it's just fun to be there. Plus the town itself is fun to walk around before or after a show.

This is a beautiful venue. We saw Boston Early Music Festival's Versailles here. The acoustics were excellent the opera was interesting but not great. Attended the Berkshire Opera Festivals production of Don Pasquale. This was a fantastic performance, the singing was great, the acting was top notch and of course Donizetti was the king of rom coms so the opera was huge fun. After two performances here i can say it's a great venue, the acoustics are first rate and the building has been perfectly restored.

John McEnerney

We love this local historic venue and enjoy all the performances they provide throughout the year, especially the live HD broadcasts from the Metropolitan Opera. It is a beautifully restored theater with an intimate feel, ornately decorated, yet very tasteful, truly a cultural gem of the Berkshires.

Was there for a concert by Radio Deluxe in December! A beautiful historic Theater in downtown Great Barrington.

The Mahaiwe in Great Barrington is the perfect spot to see a live performance. The old/restored theater is beautiful, and the small-ish size makes any seat in the house a good one. The staff were all incredibly friendly, helpful and readily available to help you find your seat. I didn't see any type of concession stand or area, so plan ahead and eat before going in. There's no on-site parking, but parking spots in Great Barrington are usually easy to find. Ticket prices vary by artist/performance, but the concert that I went to had plenty of options including "cheap seats" at $30.

This is a beautiful theate! I saw a live video broadcast of a show here. We found the seating upstairs uncomfortable with limited legroom. I was able to find out at intermission at the box office where seats were open downstairs and found those seats much more comfortable. The theater was a bit warm, but when I let them know, they adjusted the temperature. I hope to return to see music performances.

John Gross

Mike Merrill

Hot night with Melissa! Love the intimacy of the Mahaiwe.

This place is a great place to see any performance. It's immaculately clean, has adequate restroom capacity, decent acoustics and, at least once, they were giving away beer in the basement. The venue seems to be supported by a loving cadre of volunteers and has good community support as well. Plus, Great Barrington is a nice place to spend a day before your performance. I prefer this theater to other, closer venues.

Margaret Katz

Beautiful building that seats 700 with first rate events, performers, artist, speakers. Today I heard Elizabeth Warren do a town hall meeting there. Outstanding Elizabeth Warren and we'll organized event.

This small Chinese restaurant has great food and fast service. I especially like the Hot & Sour Soup. Service is quick and pleasant. I like to add Chinese black mushrooms to my sliced beef with snow peapods. No problem at this restaurant; it's easily done for a small extra charge. Go there!
