This versatile arts center offers a wide range of shows and concerts, including Broadway musicals, children’s theater, dance, jazz, and classical. Educational features are also available for both youngsters and adults, from the likes of Steve Trash, science ecologist, to works banned by the Nazis, to storytelling based on the love of Italian food – there is something for everyone, and the program is continuously evolving.

Last night was not the perfect night to wear my black velvet-bow in the front very high platform shoes. But they insisted to be taken to the Straz to watch “Mamma Mia!” despite the rain and the thunder. My accessories speak to me as if I was a Doctor Doolittle of a different kind… something like Doctor Do-occesories? Doctor DooFrills. We argued while I did my make-up. They won… only to complain much later about the water puddles and the lack of visibility once I sat down and the lights went off.

The Valet parking guys ran back and forth even in the rain. Solicitous. Friendly. Helpful. They had placed plastic chairs around for those who might need to sit down a bit when waiting for their car. Thoughtful. There were five different bars to buy from. No lines anywhere. I preordered my drink for the intermission. (Isn’t this service amazing?)

Double-whiskey neat ($14 dollars worth) in hand (yes, you got me. I did mention in another review I am only drinking on weekends. I pretended it was a Saturday… it kind of sounds like Tuesday and can be confusing.) I began to enjoy the fabulous night. My velvet shoes walked those stairs like it was a perilous runaway toward the front row of the Mezzanine. I felt like Cinderella walking down to the ball, but in reverse and away. Fierce. That is until I met my unsuspected match.

An attendant insisted cell phones needed to be put away even when my green-eyed one-person clique was using it to appease the awaited beginning of the play. (The show began a tad late, but it was the first show of the five-day season at the Straz. The ensemble must tweak and adjust accordingly.) The attendant, a woman who had taken a bit too much caffeine or was in need of a drink like mine, might have had her priorities wrong. She was inebriated with power. Fierce.

Interestingly enough… I was sitting in front of a pair of girlfriends who were mothers of?? Let’s just round up the number of kids to… let’s say eight? They ranged between the ages of five to twelve. Was the play and the theme of three-possible dads age appropriate? Perhaps… Might the mothers have thought of the possibility of not seating together in the corner chairs ignoring their kids feasible? Maybe. Could they have not loaded them with cocoa puffs? Perchance. But… they did not. All of these valid questions my shoes kept asking about. Needless to say, the attendant, who had had an issue with the glow of the cell phones bothering the other guests, was not bothered about the decibels of conversation among the kids. My shoes volunteered to help out with the problem. I ignored them.

The beginning of the musical experienced sound difficulty. Sophie began singing and one could barely hear her. The same happened with other cast members. Eventually it all got sorted out and fixed. The Morsani Hall never fails to provide with crisp and consistent sound. I have enjoyed many of the musicals they have presented in that particular hall or one of the smaller venues. The Straz is not limited to huge productions. It nests a restaurant, a coffee shop, a patio area, the fountain, the Riverwalk front. They work hard on the flow of patrons walking in and walking out. The staff aims to please, even if once in a while, one of them might be wired on too much caffeine.
