Barrington Stage Company (BSC) is a regional theatre company in The Berkshires of Western Massachusetts. It was co-founded in 1995 by Artistic Director, Julianne Boyd, and former Managing Director Susan Sperber in Sheffield, Massachusetts.

In 2004, BSC developed, workshopped and premiered the hit musical The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. Following the successful Broadway run, which nabbed two Tony Awards for Best Book and Best Featured Actor, BSC made the move to a more permanent home in Pittsfield, Massachusetts.

The company which was previously housed in the Consolati Performing Arts Center at Mount Everett High School in Sheffield, Massachusetts, purchased and renovated the Berkshire Music Hall in downtown in 2005. The venue was renamed the Boyd-Quinson Mainstage after its renovation. The 520-seat Mainstage Theatre is now located at 30 Union Street. In 2012 the company purchased an old VFW building on Linden St in Pittsfield turning it into the Sydelle and Lee Blatt Performing Arts Center . The Blatt Center includes the St. Germain Stage (formerly known as Stage 2) and a 99-seat space dubbed Mr. Finn's Cabaret. Additionally, the company acquired the Wolfson Theater Center which serves as the company's administrative offices and a rehearsal space in the center of the City of Pittsfield today.

  • The performance was completed under a large white tent - (not sure if it would happen in bad weather). But it was a nice night out after being cooped up with quarantine. A huge challenge for this...  more »
  • I hesitated at first to share my review, for a feared it might make my future ticket purchases more difficult, but they deserve the accolades and I am delighted to share them with all.  more »
  • Cute little theater. Seats are comfortable, spacious, and clean. Bathrooms were clean. Snack bar has a few selections of candy, water, and sodas. Staff were friendly. Stage was not very large, but decent for the area. Parking is available around pittsfield, does not have it's own parking area.
  • The best theatre company in the Berkshires, they're singing talent and choreography are rivaled only by Broadway itself!
