“Best live theatre in town”
Reviewed January 4, 2012

in my humble opinion. Danny Weathers always puts together an entertaining season and isn't that what theater is all about? I've seen worse performances on Broadway. Truly one of Key West's best treasures and a bargain too.

“Very nice theatre”
Reviewed January 1, 2012

This is a special treat at Mallory Square. We caught on early dinner at Hot Tin Roof and then enjoyed a great show. Theatre lovers will truly enjoy Waterfront Playhouse.

“A MUST no matter what's playing when you're in Key West.”
Reviewed December 26, 2011

I plan my trips to Key West based on when there's a production. I like to be there for opening night because it's so festive, but that's not always possible. In any production, no matter what night, the casts are always superb and every play is expertly directed. It's a wonderful way to spend an evening in Key West. Beverages are available during intermission. You can see the entire season schedule and purchase tickets on line.
