Well produced plays in a great atmosphere. Steps from MallorySquare and cruise docks. Plan ahead and go on line to see what is going to be performed when youre there. Several different plays a season, Easy to order on line. If youre driving, parking right next door.

Everything! Michael Boyer did a great set and Danny Weathers direction is amazing! We had a fabulous time and were supremely scared! The waterfront playhouse has a lot of history and hosts the mystery fest yearly! It is one of the great attractions in key west!

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.

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.
