Theatre-goers of Providence should not miss the plays at 2nd Story Theatre in Warren. The plays are often unusual, the acting is superb and the sets are always detailed and well done. This local company commands quite a presence and is a great value. Preview nights are around $10 and regular seats are around $30. There is a great bar... More

I happened upon a play review last October, and bought a ticket to see 'Enron'. It was such a good performance, my wife and I have been 4 more times to other plays here, and we're going this week to 4000 Miles. I hope to spread the word, we are taking 2 couples with us!

We came in without reservations and there were no seats available. However, they immediately found some chairs that they put very close to the stage so we could sit down. Very efficient bar service as well.

If you go understanding that this is community theater and the actors are not paid, you will enjoy it. They put on a good show whatever the play.

The venue is great and the acting is terrific. We have enjoyed every play we have seen at Second Story. The people are friendly and there is not a bad seat in the house.

2nd Story Theatre is beyond fantastic in every way. The programming is thoughtful without becoming obtuse and snobbish. The cast is topnotch, giving heart and soul to performances -- after they've sold popcorn and greeted you before the show. In other words, this is a multi-tasking group of energetic, bright, sweet people. Never ever in my many, many trips to... More

cozy theatre seats that are close to the stage! The play "A bright new Boise" was interesting! Made us think of what could be! The actors were very good.

What a gem of a place. You would think you were seeing a Broadway Play. The theater is on the smaller side making you feel you are part of the play. They put on true quality performances. If you have not been there you will not de disappointed.
