A medium sized theatre with big time performance. Adequate parking. Easily accessible. It's not the most upscale theater in Sarasota but, the performance ("The Marvelous Wonderettes") was superb. Good music and sound performances. As a plus, ticket prices a exceptionally reasonable.

Been to several of their Broadway shows and never been disappointed. Easy to park at the theatre or on the street. Very comfortable seating, but auditorium always on the chilly side. Can thoroughly recommend.

Just saw Sweet Charity. It was an energetic and well done performance. A real delight. The theatre is comfortable with good sight lines. The staging was very good. We will add this to our theatre experiences when in Sarasota.

Depends on the show. Most shows start at 7 or 8pm. And are usually 2 -3 hours depending on which show it is. ON the players website they usually show how long each show is.
