This little theater is a gem.....in an old firehouse. I have been a season ticket holder for 4 years and love all the shows.

We subscribed this year with our friends and love it. Each performance is unique and entertaining. This is local theater at its best. Only a couple of shows left for the season, so it is not too late to check them out.

Wonderful, small, intimate, professional theater. We have had season tickets for 3 years, seen every production, and never had a bad experience. If you find yourself within 50 miles of Norwich the Spirit of Broadway Theater should be on your list of places to spend an evening.

This nationally known theater focuses on producing brand-new musical works. Some are good, some maybe not so much, but always entertaining and well done.

Great musicals always and with a lot of variety. Not your standard Broadway shows. Small intimate theater with 70 seats. Great entertainment value.

We went to SoB again last Friday. We always have a blast there, but the show that's currently running is hilarious! Go see it now! We were wiping away the tears. Thanks for a fun Friday night out!

Small innovative theater staging full professional productions of new musicals! The theater is in its 17th year, and has a connection with New York that brings quality actors and production staff to this small New England town. The fully staged productions are held in a three quarter black box theater seating around 70, and there isn't a bad seat in... More

All the plays here are musicals and most of them are being staged for the first time. The building is as unique as are the plays. A former 3 bay firehouse with one the slide poles still in place. The theater is small, 74 seats, but provides the audience the feeling of actually being part of the set. The plays... More

This is a small theater in downtown Norwich that produces full, new musicals throughout the year. The quality of the shows, and the caliber of the actors make this first class. The theater is small, 74 seats, making all the seats good ones. The Director, Brett Bernardini, throws himself into every project, and his enthusiasm is contagious. The audience makes... More
