Tampa's Carol Morsani Hall is part of the Straz Center, which opened in 1987. It is one of five theaters within the complex, in addition to a Rehearsal Hall and Riverwalk. Seating 2,610 audience members along with a 60-foot-high proscenium and an 11-story backstage, this large performance venue has played host to Broadway-touring productions, ballets, concerts and Opera Tampa shows. The hall also has a 42-ton concert wall that can be lowered for singing and musical performances. The hall, an opera house, is shaped like a horseshoe and is comprised of an orchestra, mezzanine, balcony and gallery level. Due to its size, acoustics and sight lines, many Broadway shows have come to the Morsani Hall, including Anastasia, Dear Evan Hansen and Kinky Boots.
