“A Local Treasure”

Wonderful utilization of a vintage property which has been updated into the greatest playhouse We have ever attended. The season is full of great shows plus many events throughout the year.

“Loved it so much!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2013

We purchased tickets for a play there and it was absolutely wonderful. It's a rather historic place and how neat is it that it is right there on the water at Mallory Square. I would highly encourage anybody artistic or otherwise (I'm otherwise) to take in a play there. It was a wonderful evening and a wonderful experience.

“Surprisingly wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

This little theatre was the highlight of our trip. Definitely put it on your to-do list when visiting Key West. We reserved tickets online ahead of time for "Deathtrap" and everything went smoothly at Will Call. Local actors were memorable and endearing. Thank you guys for a wonderful night!

“Top rate acting in a intimate venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013

This venue was ideal for the play DeathTrap which we thoroughly enjoyed. Perfect location at Mallory Square. Plenty of restaurants to enjoy before or after. Will make this a regular stop in K.W.
