Why does theater have to be so crude? Nice playhouse but whoever selects their productions needs to take a pill.

“Outstanding Talent”
Reviewed January 19, 2012

Every year we go to Key West, we take a play at the Waterfront. So get a ticket and sit back for a terrific performance. Key West has Broadway and West End (London) talent, but so you owe it to your self and others to go to a production.

“Amazing! Way more than expected! Must see!”
Reviewed January 19, 2012

We made our first trip to Key West in January and weren't sure what to expect. We decided to add the Waterfront Playhouse to our itinerary and found it to be the one entertainment attraction that stood way out above the others. When we heard the play was three hours and had two intermissions, we said to ourselves that it had better be good to keep us there. Well, we could have gone much, much longer. It was better than broadway. The performance was spell binding and we only wish we had this quality of entertainment available here. Don't go to Key West and miss the Waterfront Playhouse.!

“They bring in some top-class actors”
Reviewed January 17, 2012

I was here a long time ago, and saw Lee Meriweather perform. She was cat woman in Batman. Nothing was playing the days I was here, but if there had been, I'd definitely tried to get tickets. Very well respected, and comfortable seats.

“Osage County”
Reviewed January 13, 2012

Really good performance of this wonderful play. The lead was outstanding. Had good seats and enjoyed running into people the next day all over town who were talking about the play. Fun!
