What a cool place to experience live theater! The venue is small enough for an intimate experience yet large enough to bring in the good stuff. We have had several experiences at the WaterFront, and they have all been wonderful.

Bigger than the Red Barn, this venue also presents great plays, as well as variety acts. It's a fun placr to visit.

One of the best things about living in Key West is our arts and theater. The Waterfront Playhouse is one of those things. If you want to really see what Key West is about, try to catch a play at this playhouse.

A fun place to see a local production. Small air conditioned venue so all seats are good. Lots of leg room (I am 6' 4"). Nice outdoor bar for intermission and you can bring your drinks into the theatre.

I really like the ambiance of the theater and the change of pace from the usual attractions of Key West. Not a big fan of Burlesque but a great introduction to the facility.
