*disclaimer: thanks to my relationship with The Straz Center and the Tampa Bay Bloggers, I did receive the opportunity to see Anastasia in exchange for blog & social media love. all opinion are my own.
Anastasia is currently at The Straz, and you do not want to miss it! The costumes are extravagant, the set is visually mesmerizing, the stage is oozing with talent – needless to say, I loved it. Anastasia was a beautiful reminder to remember where you came from and not to turn away from a little adventure! You can catch the show now, until Sunday, May 12th – find your tickets here.
We all know that I don’t spoil the show – with all of the amazing shows arriving to The Straz, here are a few words of advice to consider before your next show at The Straz:
arrive early. If you know me, you know I’m not the best at arriving on time – but arriving early for a show is a must! Plan to get to The Straz early to make parking easier, plus, it will give you time to enjoy all The Straz has to offer.
grab a bite. Sounds silly, but I plan my food on days that I get to visit The Straz. I either eat a later lunch, grab a bite on the go, or there are a couple of options at The Straz to grab a bite. Typically, it is late once your show is over, and you don’t want your stomach growling.
the Riverwalk. Take time to enjoy the Riverwalk. There are places to eat, spots to grab a drink, or simply sit & enjoy the view.
do your research. I could not suggest this one more… Do a little research on the show you’re about to see prior to. Maybe don’t read every detail, but it is helpful to have a basic idea of the storyline. And I will attest, there have been a few shows where I wish I knew more of the storyline before finding my seat.
give back. Share your love for the Straz with friends. Post it on Facebook. Or even give a monetary gift to help The Straz Center, here.
sit back. relax. and enjoy! The upcoming season for The Straz is amazing. We’re very lucky to have such an amazing lineup for our enjoyment!
