“Reason to live here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

One of the best things about living in Key West is our arts and theater. The Waterfront Playhouse is one of those things. If you want to really see what Key West is about, try to catch a play at this playhouse.

“Nice little theater venue”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2013

A fun place to see a local production. Small air conditioned venue so all seats are good. Lots of leg room (I am 6' 4"). Nice outdoor bar for intermission and you can bring your drinks into the theatre.

“Burlesque”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2013

I really like the ambiance of the theater and the change of pace from the usual attractions of Key West. Not a big fan of Burlesque but a great introduction to the facility.

“Burlesque show”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013 via mobile

On our resent trip to Key West we took in a Key West Burlesque Show "Hero". October 20th kicking off Fantasy Fest. Definitely adult only but very tastefully done and so funny. A lot of audience participation. Check it out.
