Jason Mraz coming to the Mahaffey Theater in St. Petersburg

Jason Mraz is coming from the Great White Way to the Sunshine City.

The pop singer-songwriter will embark on a solo acoustic tour next spring that includes several stops in Florida — including a March 17 date at the Mahaffey Theater in St. Petersburg. (He'll also be at Orlando's Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts on March 13 if that's a little closer to your neck of the woods.)

Mraz, whose hit singles include I'm Yours and The Remedy, will be fresh off a just-extended run in the Broadway musical Waitress, based on the Keri Russell movie. He hasn't performed locally since 2015, so we'll have to see if all that stage training comes through in his solo performance.

Tickets to the Mahaffey show start at $59.50 and go on sale at 10 a.m. Dec. 15. For more info, call the box office at (727) 893-7832/
