Owner description: The Straz Center began as a dream by visionary citizens of Tampa who persevered to bring to reality one of the finest performing arts centers in the nation. It is many things to many people and it’s more than just a building, more than just a performing arts center. It is a presenter, a producer, an educator, a community partner and an economic engine for the Tampa Bay area. It is a cornerstone of the Tampa Bay community. The Straz Center creates a regional economic impact of more than $100 million each year. To our local economy it can mean more tourists staying in hotels, eating in restaurants, shopping in stores and visiting other venues when they are here. At both the local and national level, it provides access to more than 700,000 people of all ages, abilities and cultures each year. It also provides jobs for artists and other professionals who have a passion for the arts and for our mission.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

loved the scenery, landscaping and waterfalls...took lots of pictures, strolled along the waterfrong before dinner and show. Ate at Maestro's Cafe. Experienced a variety of food and drink. Had great seats, loved the show. Would recommend this center and this show. Easy to find.

“Well maintained, staffed and located center”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

My family and I love coming here for performances.

The location is very convenient, parking is close by, the staff are numerous and every show seems to be well attended and organized.

We've seen several shows here for adults and children and every time we want to go to more.

Excellent overall!

“Beautiful Facility”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

The Straz Center is a great place to see top quality theater. We are always amazed that the actors we have seen in shows there are not doing their parts on Broadway.

“Wonderful, experiance!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

We loved being able to see a broadway show in the sunshine state. The only complaint is finding parking, can take up lots of your time.

This center for performing arts has a great variety of shows from comedians, to magicians, to Broadway shows. The Straz has good seating and is clean. Great place to see a show!
