Massachusetts enjoys a rich heritage of outstanding theaters, and the tradition continues today.

Visit Cape Cod and take in America’s oldest professional summer theater — the Cape Playhouse in Dennis. For a big-city theater fix, the American Repertory Theatre (ART) in Cambridge is a nationally acclaimed company, and Boston University’s Huntington Theater is a professional theater featuring comedies and classics in two of the city’s best theater spaces.

See the stars live on stage at Barrington Stage Company, where new works and old favorites are performed in Western Massachusetts. North of Boston, catch works from emerging playwrights at the Gloucester Stage Company. The Bard lives on in Western Massachusetts at Shakespeare and Company.
