Owner description: Located in the heart of beautiful Downtown St. Petersburg,the Progress Energy Center for the Arts—Mahaffey Theater is a 2,031 seat cultural jewel featuring elegant ballroom space, spectacular waterfront views, and European box-style seating. Just steps away from the culturally vibrant Downtown and minutes away from white sandy beaches and world-famous museums, the Mahaffey hosts top-quality national and international artists and performances – Broadway, classical, pop, rock, comedy, dance, family, and the renowned Florida Orchestra. Additionally, the theater supports the highly successful Class Acts program, which enables school children to experience the performing arts through in-theater performances as well as in-school outreach and extension programs.

This is a true treasure in St Pete. Sitting right at the harbors edge in down town. The moment you drive into the parking lot- you notice how clean, and well maintained the grounds and the building are. Everyone of the staff and the volunteers truly care about the theater , the show and the customers. There are drink serving and snacks available. Lots of great seating in and out to enjoy your pre- show drinks.
Once inside the theater- IT WAS SO PRETTY. The building is maintained to a premium the levels are so pretty, the woodwork well cared for. There is not a bad seat in the whole house. The sound is outstanding!!! Way to Go St Pete!!!!!!!

Mahaffey Theater has a great variety of shows to see throughout the year. The theater is nice and clean. You can great deals on tickets here. I've gone to many shows here including America's Got Talent last year.

Ralphie May? Who'd a thunk it? Very nice venue, great location down on the water. Easy parking $5.00 on site. A little congestion getting out with a young girl waving a flag to direct traffice who may not have been old enough to drive herself.....gotta question whether or not a more experienced person would have been beter and done a quicker job in that spot. Everything else was great! Will definitely come back up the coast from Naples for more shows.

Had a great time at the Mahaffey Theater. Good location close to everything downtown St Pete and the venue is beautiful. Looks like you could see well from any seats in the house. Sound was great and the property is awesome.

Beautiful surroundings. Great sound. Excellent staff. It reminds,you of the old time theaters. Not a bad seat in the house. Before your event, stroll along the waterfront and relax.
