We saw dorrance dancers on a very hot afternoon. They were terrific. Outstanding talented dancers made the temperature seem minor. This was a Great show at a great site. Never saw a poor performance at Jacobs pillow.

My dance-loving friends and the beautiful grounds are what bring me back every year. A performance in the Shawn Theater on Aug. 7th left us scratching our heads and was a poor value: $69 to watch a troupe of bare-chested men from Paris for an...More

The venue for Jacob's Pillow Dance is beautiful, with stages on both sides of the road. There are free performances as well as paid ones and I'd advise coming early, both to secure parking and to get a seat for the free shows. Many of...More

This year's visit to Jacob's Pillow was our 5th. There are 3 stages - the Duke and the Shawn, which are conventional theaters, and the spectacular outside stage called Inside Out, which seems to hover at the edge of an overlook of the Berkshires. While...More

Fabulous dancing! Appeals to everyone! A long way from our home, but every time we visit the Berkshires, we get a culture fix at Tanglewood, Williamstown Theater, The Clark Museum, and Jacob's Pillow! A beautiful environment, and superb dancing!

Call Jacob's Pillow at 413-243-0745 to check the schedule and ticket availability.
I have 55 seniors coming 10:30 Thursday June 16th. I know there isn't any tour available. Can we walk the property and look into the house.Do we have to pay admission. how much is it to buy a park pass for seniors. Can we hire someone else to give us a private tour for about 45 minutes. Your help would be greatly appreciated. We are coming from central NJ and it will take us 2 hours or more. We have lunch at CIA 11:45. thank you R
