We celebrate the singers and songs of the Great American Songbook from the 1940's-1970's.Enjoy a light supper of Soup, Deli-Sandwich, Coffee and Dessert, while our Cast, who are also the wait-staff sing a cabaret. Then with dessert in front of you, watch as the curtain goes up on an original Comedy.

“Hello? Is anyone here?”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012

Made a reservation a week in advance. Drove hundreds of miles to get here. Arrived on time to a locked building. We had to call them to find they cancelled the show tonight. They say support the arts, but if they don't even have the professionalism to call everyone who made reservations, maybe they should stay closed. If you're foolish enough to still go here, have alternate plans for the night. We had to eat at the pizza place across the street.

“A Musical evening in Boothbay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

The whole experience is very relaxing as you spend an evening ordering, then eating a light meal as your servers regularly detour to the stage to serenade you with music from the Barbara Streisand or Cole Porter era. When the meal is done, the servers (5-6 post-college age singers and dancers) change into their theatrical attire and put on a 45 minute show. We went on two occasions, the first show was a Beach Boys themed performance, and the second time in September was a hilarious murder mystery with the performers running on and off stage as they changed costume to represent various roles. It's a great treat when you need a night away from the nautical/harbor/lobster themes that predominate in Boothbay Harbor.

“So much fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2012

Just one of those things you "have to" do when you're in Boothbay. What a fun time - food has been simplified to just soups and sandwiches which is great because you can't mess it up and you know it's fresh. The entertainment is great - the performers are very talented, polite and very attentive as servers so you're well taken care of, it's just an overall great experience. While the servers are waiting on your table they bounce back and forth to singing caboret songs until your meal is complete. Then they change in costumes quickly and perform an original one-act original musical play which is hilarious!!!! Fun for all ages and priced just right, the Carousel is a "can't miss" evening out.

“Just go”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2012

My wife and I have attended at least one show a year here since the mid-90's. We have never been disappointed and have introduced many friends to this unique experience.
We are going twice this year, mostly to hear Rob sing Sara Lee. He has brought a real fun and enjoyable twist to to the productions. We can't say enough good things about one of our more unique local businesses.
