This place is an under-discovered gem, putting on lots of shows each year, many of which are more upbeat or fun than other performances elsewhere. The pricing is reasonable and you can buy some wine or popcorn or other treats there to enjoy along with the show. Highly recommended.

Recently caught “Frankie & Johnny in the Claire de Lune” and was more than pleasantly surprised at the quality of the production. The actors were absolutely amazing. This is a small, intimate theater without a bad seat. Seating is assigned, which is greatly preferable. Parking is no issue, and there are several wonderful restaurants for before or after the show... More

My wife and I with another couple recently went to see "The Sunshine Boys" at this very underrated but top notch theater group in Warren, Rhode Island. Often times, actors from Trinity are in the production. We were happy to see Ed Shea directing this Neil Simon play and were thrilled to see the main actors, Bob Colonna and F.... More

I go to a great deal of theatre. From Broadway in NYC to my local companies. I love supporting small theatres. This was my first time at 2nd story. We saw Sunshine Boys--a friend was in the cast. This place & actors did not disappoint. Great seating, good acoustics & wonderful performances. We will be back with friends.

Enjoyable play - theater in the round setting...professional group of actors. A/C was a welcomed treat plus guests could take beverages (alcohol/non alcohol) to their seats...no restrictions! Great historic building...it's a gem.

Clever productions with new and surprising adaptations that keep you coming back. Creative use of the theater stage to enhance and revitalize older shows and opened our eyes to newer productions. The price is right too- The motto is tell two friends, word of mouth has built membership, but worth coming to single plays too. Impressive cast. Cannot believe it... More

I was visiting my Mom & she really enjoys going to this local theatre. We got there early to get a parking spot in the adjacent lot. They have a small pub inside the theater serving drinks & popcorn. They have 2 theatres,one upstairs & the other downstairs. There is an elevator for those that have trouble with steps. Seating... More
