“Great innovative theater”
Review of Spirit of Broadway - CLOSED

Spirit of Broadway
Attraction details
Reviewed 4 March 2014

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 the house. Refreshments are available, and the delicious desserts can be enjoyed in the theater during the show.

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 are always super and with the guidance of Founding Artistic
Direector, Brett Bernardini, the attendees always see a great production..
Everyone should make it a point of getting to see many on the productions here at prices about
one quarter of those in NY.

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 a difference also. Recently they produced a show about Benedict Arnold, There was much controversy about this production, but Brett Bernardini believed it could be an asset to the City of Norwich and persevered. After the initial production, the audience was asked for feed back. This show was just a stage reading, since the controversy had delayed their ability to be completely ready. The writers will get the feed back and rework the production. The finalized show will be performed in the summer. These shows are written by first quality writers, who knows, you might see it here first, and later Broadway, NYC!!

This is my third year of going to this theater and I love it. I purchased (again) Season Tickets because it's such a great value. It's a small theater and there isn't a bad seat in the house. I enjoy going to Asian Thai on Main St.for dinner before the play then it's just a cou[le of minutes to Spirit of Broadway. Save room for desert during intermission, they are home made..DELISH!
