Owner description: The Straz Center began as a dream by visionary citizens of Tampa who persevered to bring to reality one of the finest performing arts centers in the nation. It is many things to many people and it’s more than just a building, more than just a performing arts center. It is a presenter, a producer, an educator, a community partner and an economic engine for the Tampa Bay area. It is a cornerstone of the Tampa Bay community. The Straz Center creates a regional economic impact of more than $100 million each year. To our local economy it can mean more tourists staying in hotels, eating in restaurants, shopping in stores and visiting other venues when they are here. At both the local and national level, it provides access to more than 700,000 people of all ages, abilities and cultures each year. It also provides jobs for artists and other professionals who have a passion for the arts and for our mission.

The Performing Art Center is excellent. We have attended several performances and always found high quality shows in a relax, friendly, and enjoyable theater. Parking options are good. An food and drinks availability before and during intermission are also good.
If you have been at the Straz Center try it and have a wonderful evening.

Lots of convenient parking, a beautiful riverside location, modern interior, comfortable seating, including many boxes with good visibility. From broadway shows to Flordia Orchestra to standups like LouisCK & Jerry Seinfeld this house showcases them all.

This venue has multiple theaters, all of them provide terrific seating for every show. We saw So You Think You Can Dance here on December 4, 2012 and were impressed with the efficient way the staff handled a packed house, from taking tickets, to seating people, intermission drinks and bathroom breaks to exiting. There were never any long waits, the place is designed for the best theater experience possible. I have visited the smaller theaters in the past and have had the same type of great experience. A must-visit venue for the theater enthusiast!

My husband and I saw a show here on our anniversary.
The seating was great. The beauty of the building was spectacular, and during intermission it was easy getting a glass of wine, using the facilitys, and returning to our seats. The performing arts center was a part of the best anniversary, ever!
