“A Theatre Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2013

A wonderful intimate theatre near downtown Sarasota. Every show I have seen has had a wonderful cast, full of energy, and great performances. We started going last year and have purchased tickets for 4 productioons this year. Looking forward to The whipping Man, Harry and Lena and Bubbling Brown Sugar. Purlie was wonderful. It is a great complement to the other theatre venus in Sarasota.

“Outstanding local theater”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

This place is a hidden gem in Sarasota. High energy, great performances. We go to one or two productions every year. Maybe it isn't so hidden, because it is getting difficult to get tickets as they often sell out. A "must do" in Sarasota if you can get tickets!

“Lots of talent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

Saw "Purlie" and the opening number was wonderful. After that, we really had a difficult time understanding some of the dialogue.. The actors were energetic and really did a great job. Unfortunately, the chairs did not agree with our backs and we had to leave at intermission.

“My favorite theater venue in this area!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

If you can snag a ticket to a WBTT production, do so!! I've been going for at least four years, and I always come away smiling. The performances are tight and really well done on so many levels. Nate Jacobs has nourished this troupe from the very beginning, and the growth has been phenomenal. I just saw Purlie, and once again I was so impressed with the acting, singing, choreographing, timing and overall production! It's general seating, so get there early, but even from the seats on the side, I've never been disappointed!

“Great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

A group of very talented vocalists and muscians that will make you want more. I have not had a bad experience at any of their performances and have been attending for the past 3 years.
