Before talking came into vogue, most communication was conducted via song and dance, with brokers whistling out the prices of shares and shoppers ordering at the deli counter with tap routines about pimiento loaf.

The newly renovated Mahaffey Theater showcases a wide range of performances, from traditional Broadway musicals to sensational acrobatics and comedy shows.

The Mahaffey Theater
Just minutes from downtown's bustling shops and overlooking the glassy waters of Tampa Bay, The Mahaffey Theater's picturesque building hosts some of Florida's most entertaining art and performance offerings. Originally built in 1965, the renovated building's floor-to-ceiling glass façade pierces the night with softly glowing light, cordially inviting patrons inside and awakening desires in moths that can never be fulfilled. The box-style seating of the theater ensures clear sightlines for all patrons, and its excellent acoustics make the venue suitable for both thunderous rock bands and delicate chamber ensembles.
