“Great Talent, Creativity and good food too”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014

We have been heading to the Carousel from Windham with friends who love the easy going, fun-filled atmosphere as much as we do. This is our fourth summer and the talent was excellent, so well suited to the caberet numbers and also the original and very creative play that featured a wonderful assortment of pop tunes. The dinner selections as well were just right for this easy going evening.

“A Wholesome Way to Pass an Evening in Boothbay Harbor”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2014

Our hats are off to the performers (who double as waiters) who give the performance their all in an erstwhile theater performance. Our family of 5 (including 3 teenagers) shared some laughs and were impressed by the performers dedication despite the fact that there's a pretty large portion of kitschy theatrical numbers served up.

The only untruth in advertising is the characterization by the Theater that it offered "fine dining". The food is fine but is not "fine dining": sandwich fare offered in plastic picnic-like containers does not constitute fine dining.

One suggestion: it's understandable that the owner / artistic director desires his few minutes in the sun. But his ridiculously schmaltzy song performance is not only painful to endure, but its cheap self-indulgence cheapens the serious effort of the performers themselves.

If you approach the evening with undemanding expectations, it's a couple hours of carefree entertainment.

We make it a point to go to the Carousel every summer when we go to Boothbay Harbor. It is always a good show.
