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.

This little theatre was the highlight of our trip. Definitely put it on your to-do list when visiting Key West. We reserved tickets online ahead of time for "Deathtrap" and everything went smoothly at Will Call. Local actors were memorable and endearing. Thank you guys...More

This venue was ideal for the play DeathTrap which we thoroughly enjoyed. Perfect location at Mallory Square. Plenty of restaurants to enjoy before or after. Will make this a regular stop in K.W.
