We went today with our high school class and had a wonderful experience! The show was amazing, and the after show questioning and answering time with cast& crew gave us a better perspective and appreciation of what you do!
The best plays with seasoned actors. Have been subscription goers for 17 years. Love the place.

On impulse, I signed up for Improv for Life class. What can I say? It blew me away! I really opened up to new possibility in my life and I'm so grateful for the lessons. :) Thanks, John.
Went to se Fun Home. The cast was fantastic!!!!
Great venue to catch great theater!!
It’s a small venue with a very homey feel. I give it a really good rating!
Great plays with local talent. A good night out!
not a bad seat in the house! great sound.
Quality drama, quality acting, St. Pete has finally hit the big time. This is world class theater; albeit, in a small venue.
A great experience from the point you walk in the lobby, to the Prologue before the show, to the magnificent production I saw. The company’s commitment and caring for the experience they want the audience to have is evident everywhere! More...

Love their productions! We see everyone we can.
Saturday eve was my first time attending American Stage to see Mama Mia. What a privilege to see this extraordinary ensemble of highly talented actors as they danced, sang and acted! It was so much fun to be in the audience surrounded by super-fans of the movie and Abba songs. I am still singing the songs in my head today. Please bring them back again next year for an encore performance! More...
Mamma Mia in the Park was amazing!
A St Petersburg treasure!

Always new. Well performed, but "The Roomate" has smoke used. What was that, anyway?
Wonderful stage. Not a bad seat in the house.
Excellent performance seeing Pipeline.
This theatre truly uses its unique and intimate space beautifully to capture the human experience. No seat is a bad seat. Love it love it love it
Great theatre experience.
Each show has been a unique gem. Amazing what is achieved with an intimate stage. Never disappointed.
American Stage produces powerful, necessary plays with world-class talent and production values. You will be transformed!
We have been going to the New Plays series this weekend. What an adventure!
This theater is unique. Every aspect of each performance is visible. The cozy set-up allows for every seat in the house to be a great seat, up close, personal and engaging.
Linda Jordan Inglis
Amazing professional actors with wonderful plays. We enjoy all their work! Join with a annual membership...best deal in town for entertainment.
It’s a great place to see fresh hard working talent.
Once again, we have experienced superb production quality at American Stage. Congratulations!
Excellent show “ Between Riverside and Crazy”. L. Peter Callendar and all the other actors gave a powerful performance delivering a non- stereotypical glimpse of what life could be like beyond Trump Towers !
Terrific pprofessional productions!
Great intimate setting where there’s no bad seat in the house. The plays that I’ve seen in this venue have been thought provoking and well done. The staff is very friendly. I highly encourage checking out a play at the American Stage. More...
Duane Edward Wright
Simple put, movies are great, but live theater awakens the mind, heart and soul.
Sylvia Gabe Richards
Fabulous show today. Great cast and very poignant.
This is just a magnificent play.. a must go see... you can’t go wrong... made me laugh.. cry.. all the emotions that anyone would feel. . I loved it.. and come to find out some of these people in the play were associated with ( my favorite of all time) The “Rasin In the Sun.”. To the cast... Thank you for your gift.. you are all very Special.. brovo to you all More...
Kim Harvey Myers
Very quaint theater in Downtown St. Pete. Their plays are always interesting and well done. The actors come from all over and make this theater the perfect little gem. The theater is small so you’re really a part of the experience— you kind of feel like you’re on the set of a tv filming. Check out one of their shows! 5 stars ⭐️ More...
Congratulations to the cast and crew on an excellent and engaging production of Much Ado About Nothing. Filled with lively, colorful and whimsical touches, all in service to the story. Highly recommended.
Hairspray in the park is a great show! Broadway quality performance here in St Pete. All the actors were spot on. This is a show not to miss. Grab your family and a picnic basket and enjoy! More...
My first time ever to this place..............what a pleasant surprise indeed!!!! First rate cast-every one of them. And flawless. ......and this was opening night! Two thumbs up! More...
I just moved back to the area. The first thing I did was get tickets for 5 of the shows & last night got all 6 for next season.
Great theater for these shows,
impressive set designs and top notch acting. I'd love to see August Wilson's plays repeated (missed 2). This season just baffled me....made me think for days. BRAVO. More...
Saw 'The Producers' tonight, it was terrific! A must see!
Janeche Hellevang Petrou
A Raisin in the Sun- One of the most riveting performances I have ever experienced - anywhere in the world. A must.
It's a gem in StPete. , Well written, well directed plays with brilliant performances. And all in the heart of downtown St Pete! I didn't like the adaptation of "Much Ado About Nothing" that much but looking forward to the rest of the season. More...
Connie Quinn Harkinson
Very comfortable and cozy not a bad seat in the house
Randy Teagan Grunge Payne
it was a great show. BUT if you can make a announcement before hand, that women who put on loads of perfume, could make others cough or sneeze or other wise be allergic as i was last night. i stood up wind and still could not control my sneeze or coughing. just a friendly reminder....that even though you sit outside, still dont mean you have to cover yourself with it. but great show!!!! love me some matt and scott! More...
American Stage is a point of pride in Tampa Bay with first-rate productions that reflect current trends and ideas, revive classics, offer contemporary humor and cutting-edge artistry, all performed by and staged by professionals who make the experience authentic and immersive. What's more, the company offers comfortable seating and the assistance of a friendly, efficient staff. My personal wish: That the company adopt a black box theater company in residence to perform more low-budget, vanguard fare. Not sure how or where this can be done, but make it so! More...
Both leads deliver a poignant and realistic performance throughout the play that speak to the vast injustices and violations of privacy experienced by documented citizens and undocumented immigrants alike!
Jodi Choate O'Meara
I have been a member of American Stage for the last several years. It is a fantastic date night- the plays are well done and the seats are perfect in every place in the house.
After a visit or two, every guest feels like family.
This past play, The Royale, was one of the best plays I have ever seen here or anywhere. The acting, directing and effects were absolutely top-notch! It left me speechless, moved and best of all, thinking of the complexities of society. I love American Stage for all it offers. More...
Great show! Yes it was a “rehearsal” but other than a couple of microphone issues as good as any performance. Cast and crew are outstanding.
Beautiful set, incredibly written and portrayed by a professional and talented cast, director, and stage manager. So happy to have found my way to this theatre.
Cody Hunter Farkas
I love this place with all my heart. I got to see A Raisin In the Sun and it was amazing!! I even got to do a summer workshop for American Stage!
Saw this show this afternoon and it blew us away. The show was excellent and the individual performances were way beyond our expectations. Highly recommend this show and this theater. We will be making the trek to St. Pete more often!! More...
Jen Lanes Gozlan
The AST is the only theater commited to professional dramatic productions in Tampa Bay. There is not a bad seat in the house and shows are thought provoking.
I recommend the theater highly.
Today's production of Strait of Gibraltar, while effective, is more mixed. Effective at confronting the Constitutionality (or lack thereof) of the Patriot Act, but committing a stereo typically unflattering view of the Jewish mother in the process. Simply unnecessary to achieve the writers ends. That said, a solid performance by the actors involved. More...
Loren Bergus Bennett
The play bad Jews was amazing while it Had some comedy because the characters could be very funny, it had a very deep spiritual remembrance of the holocaust and what it meant to future generations And how if we don’t live to tell about how it will just be a very bad memory and forgotten about.
Rebecca A. Geanaros
I attended a performance of "The Producers" on Sunday, May 6th at Demen's Landing. Along with a friend and my dog we were instantly swept into the musical story line and completely engaged and charmed with each of the superb actors' characters. The music, costumes, stage props and background effectively helped propel us through the musical from beginning to end. I especially enjoy St. Petersburg for all its artistic communities and I deeply appreciate the presence of American Stage as a integral part of it. Thank you for a wonderful night of song, dance, humor and story. Kudos to all involved for an outstanding production!!! More...
Outstanding venue spilling over with extraordinary talent!
Robin Gooley Taylor
Bad Jews was a fabulous play!! The actors were superb and the theater is a beautiful place! This was my first play here but definitely not my last
All seats are great. Easy to hear and see. Often their plays get you to think, which I always enjoy!
Bad Jews was fabulous!!! Incredible cast!
Jen Lanes Gozlan
The AST is the only theater commited to professional dramatic productions in Tampa Bay. There is not a bad seat in the house and shows are thought provoking. I recommend the theater highly.
Go see A Raisin in the Sun— it’s been extended one week. Excellent cast, excellent production, excellent play!
We attended a dress rehearsal of Raisin in the Sun; great venue, comfortable seating, and strong performance by talented cast!
Great group! Fun performances & professional classes. We enjoy the variety!
See it. Everything about this production was right, and the story is important.
Every play seems better than the last! Just saw The Royale, loved it!!!
Absolutely amazing performances!!! When so many talented people get together it couldn't be any other result or any disappointment. Can't wait for a new season. Bravo to all who made this happened and thank you for bringing laugh, joy and live to our community! More...
Great performances!!! Magic of theater will bring my friends and me many more times to this place!
A great place to watch a play it is small and intimate. We will definitely be going back.
Very Intimate Experience! We saw "Sex with Strangers" it was a very emotional, gripping and funny performance! Gave me goosebumps in more ways than one!
Excellent venue. Looking forward to more visits there.
Very entertaining....very comfortable and show was awesome...will definitely go again excellent well done show
I've been attending American Stage for fifteen years. The productions have always been interesting and thoughtful. I've not liked each play equally of course, but the quality of each production has been high.
American Stage is one of my very favorite places. Their productions are fun, interesting and thought provoking. Excellent acting and set design as well as a great atmosphere. #seasonticketholders #wouldntmissone More...
Well put together. Great job Saint Pete !!! I thought St Pete was boring. It was actually quite nice �
The Golden Gurlz live made my year! It was amazing.
Lois Czeh Fries
I am so grateful to have a profesional theater like American Stage here. Have been a patron for 20 years or more. Just saw the "Invisible Hand" and appreciated the performances. The Adam Smith philosophy is not mine, however. Altruism is alive and well. More...
Quoting Hal Freedman, here: "Last (Friday) night we went to the opening of 'The Invisible Hand at American Stage'. Incredibly powerful, gripping and thought provoking. The mix of Capitalism and Terrorism; greed and saving your own skin; unintended consequences!" More...
I thoroughly enjoyed Hairspray at American stage in the park. Great upbeat and funny show. The actors really enjoying what they do. Kudos to American stage!
I would not have changed a thing. We had such fun. Thank you American Stage!
Attended the American Stage production of Hairspray. Getting to see these productions in an outdoor setting on Saint Petersburg waterfront adds to the fun. If you get the chance go see Hairspray! More...
Michael Gasper DiBernardo
Awesome group of performers. My wife and I enjoy the plays you put on and what a great outdoor venue to do it in. My only wish is that their would be more outdoor plays .
As Always a stellar night under the stars with great friends and an Awesome production of Hairspray
I could not stop dancing. The music and the performers were superb!
Anastasia C. Hiotis
Bravo American Stage!! Hairspray was outstanding, and Pride Night was fabulous!! What a treasure for our community. A must see for all!
Always first rate. American Stage consistent quality and I'd love to be involved.
Mary Ellen Fitzpatrick Ifft
Fantastic from beginning to end, great voices, very entertaining
Informed Consent was thought provoking and moving, outstanding performances. Very kind staff helped us with missing tickets.
I really enjoyed myself yesterday. And i do plan on going to another show.
This is a very nice intimate theater. I try to make at least 3-4 plays a year. The plays and the performers are awesome. I have been going to this theater for the past 12 years and have never been disappointed. More...
I thoroughly enjoy performances in this intimate setting provided at the American Stage. And last night I was fortunate enough to see Joe Turner's Come & Gone from the front row. This was another excellent August Wilson play! More...
Khari Ky Brown
Actors were great. The stage, props and backdrops were maximized. This combination makes for a great performance.
great evening....the theater is small and intimate allowing the actors to be almost within reach. We enjoyed the production Joe Turner Come and Gone and would go again to the American Stage.
The staff is helpful, professional while still being friendly. The theatre is clean, inviting and comfortable. I have been several times and the experience has consistently been positive. Every performance I have attended has been EXCELLENT! More...
An absolute treasure to have such a professional amazing theater right in downtown St. Petersburg. They produce some of the best place I have ever seen. So much local talent also performing with national talent. Never been disappointed! More...
A visit to American Stage has become a part of our family tradition while visiting the Gulf Coast in January. We enjoy the feeling of intimacy with the action on stage ,being drawn not just emotionally into the action, but almost physically as well. We have seen the last two productions of August Wilson's plays and the performances have been " over the top sensational". I have a sense of what life in a racially divided city in the 20th century must have been like for those who were struggling to survive and care for their families. I would commend this theater and its productions to anyone who appreciates the art of live theater. More...
Thomas L. Shanklin
August willsons play, Joe Turnere has come and gone. FABULOUS. DO NOT MISS IT.
Fantastic. Joe Turners come and gone. My first play interested in going to more. The cast fabulous. The staff perfect �
Jamie Kinneer Curley
Had a wonderful Christmas eve with my daughters in this intimate little theatre. The show was amazing! �
It was awesome!! A nice Christmas play to see !
As I am the only person on planet Earth who had never seen the movie, I loved everything about this production. Please do yourself a favor and treat yourself to seeing "It's A Wonderful Life". The actors were excellent and enjoyed giving us a superb performance. My thanks for a production well done. More...
Great Place for plays Love The American Stage. A must try if you have not been.
See my "review"--GREAT! Great performances, great set and costumes, great political ads. This was a fun show!
Tartuffe was thought provoking and inspiring! I highly recommend it! I will definitely be back!
If you miss Tartuffe, you will be missing a play that, even though adapted (by American Stage's commission to Robert Caisley) from a 400 year old French Farce by Moliere, is as topical and meaningful as today's headlines! I mean today's, since a few lines may be added that even I have not seen. It harpoons and lampoons the current political climate from both sides of the aisle! Just see it...everything clicks from the cast to the set to the wonderful adaptation! More...
Amazing production of Good People! Excellent and talented actors, story and direction. Great space. I enjoyed seeing Tartuffe and looking forward to returning in the future. Worth checking out this space! Thank you American Stage � More...
Great space with talented actors. I greatly enjoyed seeing Tartuffe and looking forward to returning in the future. Worth checking out this space!
Great theatre, great classes, great adult education and opportunities for kids! American Stage is a fantastic community participant and resource!
I thoroughly enjoyed Good People. The cast was superb. Maggie's role was a difficult one but Rebecca Fines mastered it.
Quality productions, excellent acting and a comfortable venue. Always a pleasure.
Great start to the 2016-17 season with production of Good People. Excellent actors, story and direction. If you attend but one play this year, treat yourself to this one.
Best stage management ever, shows are so smooth. Five stars !
Spamalot is an excellent show, but the noise from the Rowdies game (Ralph's Mob drums) and the cigar smoke enveloping us in the lawn area were distracting & disgusting. I went home humming happily, but nauseous from fumes. More...
Why cant i use a legless chair in the legless chair section? My back cant do blanket style.
Jennifer Ashley Snow
American Stage has the BEST Improv Program and their plays are fantastic! American Stage is my most favorite theatre in Florida.
Elithia V Stanfield
Attended the matinee today, fantastic performance!
Sally Day Butler
American Stage's JITNEY is a wonderful production of a powerful play. I recommend it to all. One of my favorite August Wilson plays.
This was my first experience at American Stage and it won't be my last... I really enjoyed. Great Actors
J Monique Baker
I love the way the story captured the essence of common everyday things in the lives of regular everyday people
Karen Dugan Koven
The was a perfect holiday treat! This play captured the spirit of the movie in a fascinating way. How fun to watch the sound effects guy and this multi-talented cast!
Was a perfect night to get together with friends and enjoy a great show
Had a wonderful time! I will definitely be coming back to watch more performances.
Very entertaining adaptation of It's a Wonderful Life with a talented cast. Thank you Stephanie Gularte for bringing this play to American Stage Theater.
Wonderful time and a fantastic show!!!! We laughed and laughed. Can't wait to go again.
Nicole Norris Heath
So good every time...they never disappoint! Can't wait for the next performance in the park ♡♡♡

American stage you are fantastic I am giving you 5 stars, plus I've been to between 4 and 7 of your place and they were all fantastic.
What a delight! Can't wait to go again! The theater is beautiful, seats are very comfortable and there really is not a bad seat! The acting was first class. Second American Stage play for me, and first time at this theater. I'm hooked for life More...
