Owner description: Located in the heart of beautiful Downtown St. Petersburg,the Progress Energy Center for the Arts—Mahaffey Theater is a 2,031 seat cultural jewel featuring elegant ballroom space, spectacular waterfront views, and European box-style seating. Just steps away from the culturally vibrant Downtown and minutes away from white sandy beaches and world-famous museums, the Mahaffey hosts top-quality national and international artists and performances – Broadway, classical, pop, rock, comedy, dance, family, and the renowned Florida Orchestra.

“Great Venue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

Great theater - easy to get to and out of. Free parking unless you want valet parking. We say Penn & Teller - Not so good when they did card tricks - couldn't really see unless you were in first 10-20 rows. They used a screen, but not the same. Theater is big, so if there are details in the act be sure to get a seat close to the stage.

“MAHAFFEY THEATER IS FIRST CLASS”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2012

We had the great pleasure of attending the Roberta Flak concert a week or so ago. The venue is lovely. You can walk to dining prior to the event and that was fantastic! We parked at Mahaffey and the walk to drinks and dinner. The staff is friendly and professional. The venue, in doors and out doors, is simply beautiful . Not a bad seat in the house, truly! Can't recommend Mahaffey enough! Wonderful evening!
