Cold but the fountains at the Straz Center were warm and colorful

We had the good fortune to enjoy an early date night to celebrate Valentine's Day - it's Sunday, the 14th!! - and went to the Straz Center for the Performing Arts to see the musical Godspell. It was performed in my favorite space at the center, the Jaeb Theater. Of the four theaters, this one is next to the smallest in size,
but is the most interesting of all. There are two balconies and the floor surrounding the stage. Everyone sits at small round tables for four, and our seats this evening were at the front, directly at the stage.
The performers came off stage several times onto raised staging in the middle of the audience and it made for a great evening of music of the 1970s made new, dance and song. Even the staging and musicians get my thumbs up for being just right. I highly recommend that you see Godspell; it runs though May 16th.
After the show we walked out toward the Hillsborough River and I took the fountain, gift shop and walkway. It was a really fun night and except for the temperature in the 40s, it was perfect.


  1. Sounds like a wonderful night indeed. Happy Valentine's Day!

    Oh, and I love the fountain! :)

  2. I've never seen the show, but I know some of the music and I envy your opportunity to share this with your love!

    Great photo, too!
