I've seen many NSMT shows over the years and most have been very good. The past five years the theater has been under new management and I can now say that the shows are excellent. The talent and stage effects are Broadway worthy at every show that I have seen here in recent years. A great experience without going into... More

Have been to numerous programs at the theater and have enjoyed them. There is really no bad seat in the house due to the round theater. The only down side is the lack of women's bathrooms. The attendant does a great job getting people in and out but there is just not enough. If you pay an extra 10$ you... More

We are season tickets holders and have been for many years. The shows at NSMT never disappoint. We love that the venue is "theater in the round" as it makes you feel like a part of the show! The talent is also amazing!

Great venue on the North Shore, plenty of free parking and a great selection of shows. The past season we saw couple of shows and they were awesome. If you give yourselves some time before the show your can enjoy the hastle free parking and avoid the crowds. Same applies once the show is over, wait for 15-20 mins before... More

We have been to this iconic playhouse many times. They play many musicals, seasonal acts and concerts and children's theatre. The entire theatre was recently updated with AC and tremendous sound systems. The attendees tend to be older folks but that's OK. The younger people do not know what they are missing. Too busy on their phones? Speaking of which,... More

Unique circular venue, makes it a great place to see a show. Not a bad seat in the house as the performers play to all sides of the theater. Plenty of parking. Police assist with traffic making it pretty painless to get out of the lot after the show. Could use more staff or more stands for concessions, as the... More

Our family loves the Christmas season and we look for activities we can all enjoy. On Saturday December 10th we went to see A Christmas Carol at the Northshore Music Theater in Beverly Mass. Our group of 14 people, ages ranging from 8 years old to 80 enjoyed the play immensely. The special effects are awesome; the acting is superb... More

I took my husband to see "Singing in the Rain" for his birthday this past August and what a truly spectacular night out! I went to the show now knowing what to expect based on the fact that we generally visit shows at the major Boston based theatres or on Broadway. What to my surprise . . . this little... More

We've been here a bunch of times for plays, comedy and musicals. Tonight we saw West Side Story and really enjoyed it. They make great use of the round stage which is encircled by the audience.
