For a small theater, it offers some great performances at reasonable prices. However, it's locale in downtown Norwich is a drawback. The area is a little seedy and I don't always feel comfortable patronizing an establishment downtown at night.

OMG! If you want to laugh, you have to see this show. Leave the kids at home and check it out. Nothing like a little red-necked humor to get you laughing! Another wonderful show at the best little theater in the area! Don't wait too long, it's only playing here until October 5!

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
