If you are lucky enough to be in Key West while there is a show at the Waterfront, then go. Run, do not walk. This little theater consistently puts on some of the most entertaining live theater I have seen. Leading Ladies was hilarious and I can't wait to see Xanadu in March!

Great variety of shows, great acting, great value. Located next to Mallory Square, in the heart of Key West's historic district.

A small intimate (150 seat) theatre in the centre of town. We saw Other Desert Cities and really enjoyed the play. The acting was excellent with the pace and rhythm of the drama well conveyed.

We have never been disappointed in any of the performances at the Waterfront. We look forward to seeing what is being offered each season. The variety in performances is very good and we enjoy each actor in his or her role.

We saw "Other Desert Cities" on February 9th and loved it. First time attending this theater. It is a small and intimate space that seems smaller than its 150 seats. Very comfortable chairs, and the acting was top notch. I didn't expect the twist at the end! I will definitely check this out again next time I'm in town. I wish i had known about this theater earlier. A great alternative to the overwrought bar scene that seems to define Duval.
