Shakespeare and Company is performing “The Canterville Ghost” at the new Elayne Bernstein Theater in Lenox Massachusetts. We attended last night’s preview and loved it. Michael Hammond is brilliant as Sir Simon the Spellbinder. The supporting cast was talented and versatile. The play runs about 90 minutes without intermission.
This was our first trip to the Elayne Bernstein Theater and we were very impressed. The facility is beautiful and we look forward to future visits. The theater is in a large wide room but the audience is very close to the performers, which makes for an intimate experience. The staging and quality of the performance overcome the modern and minimalist decor. The one drawback is the seats. Although padded they are not very comfortable for larger people.
The play runs through November 9th, so book your room at Brook Farm Inn, order your tickets from Shakespeare and Company, and enjoy the fall foliage in the Berkshires.
