Exploring the Key West Theater Scene

Key West Theater

Top tier music, tributes, concerts, comedy, variety, and locally produced songwriters and events are setting the stage at the Key West Theater. What was once a place of worship, originally built in 1848 as the 1st Baptist Church of Key West, is now an intimate performing art and entertainment venue on the island. Welcome to the Key West Theater located on Eaton Street between Duval Street and Simonton.

Reviews are in…

“Where can you find an intimate venue like this in today’s world????!!!! We have seen two shows at this theater. There are no bad seats. We just returned from Patty Smythe and Scandal. We sat in the balcony. Your own private bar and bathroom. Easy for us to drive down as we live in SE FL. Gives us yet another reason to visit KW.” ~ Hpychk, Ft. Lauderdale, FL via TripAdvisor
