Attraction details
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.

Nice venue. But the valet parking is expensive...lot of parking available nearby. Stand alone bars, a good restaurant.. Lucky if you find a sandwich in the cafe, mostly junk snacks.

Many different performers and artists come here. Theaters are reasonable comfortable and sound is great. Many hotels and restaurants nearby so you don't have to mess with parking.

We took friends from England to see "s Wonderful. The show was not up to the level we are used to at the Center. They tried to the show to the music ala Mama Mia but failed. It may be that the music was to varied.

Good value and a nice venue. We saw S'wonderful ~ all the singers were very good, and one gal belted it out of the park! Nice seating arrangement, also.

Not only does the Straz Center provide great entertainment from musicals to operas, concerts to theater performances and dance, it also sits directly on the water and visitors can stroll along the boardwalk or sit outdoors to enjoy a light dinner or drink before their show.
