Key West Theater presents: Jimmie Vaughan
Founding member of the Fabulous Thunderbirds and brother of Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimmie was one of the leading Austin, Texas guitarists of the late ’70s and ’80s, responsible for opening the national market up for gritty roadhouse blues and R&B. Influenced by guitarists like Freddie King, B.B. King, and Albert King, Vaughan developed a tough, lean sound that became one of the most recognizable sounds of ’70s and ’80s blues and blues-rock. Doors open 7 p.m., show starts 8 p.m.

Key West Theater presents: Broadway Backwards
Your favorite local performers prove gender doesn’t matter, but love does as they explore and embrace the great songs of musical theater with a twist: the men sing songs intended for women and vice versa without changing pro-nouns. All proceeds to benefit the Key West High School Drama Club & Key West Theater production of “Legally Blonde”. Doors open 6:30 p.m., show starts 7 p.m.
Apr. 5, 2018
Key West Theater and Rams Head Productions present: Keller Williams
Since he first appeared on the scene in the early ‘90s, Keller Williams has defined the term independent artist. And his 16 recordings tell only half the story. Keller built his reputation initially on his engaging live performances, no two of which are ever alike. Williams’ solo live shows—and his ability to improvise to his determinedly quirky tunes despite the absence of an actual band—quickly became the stuff of legend, and his audience grew exponentially when word spread about this exciting, unpredictable performer. Doors open 7 p.m., show starts 8 p.m.
Apr. 6, 2018
Key West Theater presents: The Outlaws
American southern rock and country rock band performing for over 40 years, best known for their 1975 hit “There Goes Another Love Song” and extended guitar jam “Green Grass and High Tides” from their 1975 debut album, plus their 1980 cover of the Stan Jones classic “(Ghost) Riders in the Sky”. Doors open 7 p.m., show starts 8 p.m.

March 29 to April 04 Waterfront Playhouse presents: Avenue Q
Once is never enough with Avenue Q! Since the show was such a tremendous hit in the 2016/17 season, the Waterfront is bringing back this monster hit for 3 weeks only. Avenue Q is the winner of the Tony “Triple Crown” for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book. Avenue Q tells the story of Princeton, a recent college grad. He and his friends struggle to find decent jobs, stable relationships and a purpose in life in a musical that is hilariously timeless.
