Tonight was my first visit to the Mahaffey Theater, but it won’t be my last! What a beautiful venue for a show! The facility is well-staffed with friendly people and even offers valet parking for events for only $15! Perfect night at G3!

No they are not allowed. It could have been the show I went to wouldn’t allow them. I’m not sure if that is policy of the Theater.
