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.

We saw the Rockettes and they lit up the stage with their talent and props.
I have also seen children's productions from the camps run in the summer.
There are an aray of shows and talent that come through Tampa no need to travel!

I saw a great production of Porgy and Bess. The building is just to industrial for me to like. The seating was also a little tight.

The Straz is a beautiful new arts center in downtown Tampa. It's right on the river and has easy access to parking. They have indoor and outdoor dining before the show. It's beautiful inside, too. The staff is very friendly and cooperative. We arrived early and the let us in to use the restroom before the show. I can't say enough good things about the Straz.

Love going to Straz Center. Especially combining dinner at Maestro's and then the show. Getting out of parking lot and on to interstate is pretty quick as well.
