Small theater so there are only good seats. Sets are always amazing. Acting is always most enjoyable whether comedy or drama. Get the 'rush' season tickets to save a ton on season package and see all the main theater shows. Great value for the price. Even at full price, shows worth the money.

The Florida Rep should be part of your day or evening in Fort Myers. My husband and I have been attending their shows for several years and are now season subscribers. Situated near the harbor area, it affords an easy walk along the water, shops to suit many needs and dining experiences of many varieties. Spend an afternoon or spend... More

The Florida Rep is one of those well-hidden secrets in Fort Myers. The are nationally recognized as one of the best repertory theaters in the country and they deserve it.

What a great experience! I was asked by a friend to join her and see the play "Heartsongs". Knowing nothing about it, I was pleased to join her. I've seen many shows on Broadway, in Europe, and the wonderful "Barbara B Mann Theater". To my surprise, the show was a mix of comedy, drama, and sisterhood.... raw emotion. It's. Not... More

Great downtown location in an historic building can't be beat, esp with great restaurants right there for before or after. Parking a little bit of a chore, recommend valet lot across the street. Seating comfy, temperature good too. Have seen 3 plays - one mystery, two dramas. All excellent, great casting . Very very good local theater.

We have attended many productions in this quaint, comfortable little theater. The plays are at all times top notch and the actors are superb. Try to make at least one play while you are here. Parking is easy and have dinner in town before ... or after.

We have attended the Florida Rep in the Arcade theatre in downtown Fort Myers many times. Attended Clybourne Park today. Great acting as always. The most comfortable and lovely theatre in Fort Myers or Naples. They now serve mixed drinks, wine, beer, etc. before and at intermission. Parking is very convenient as it is across the street in a lot... More

This November we paid our second visit to the Florida Repertory Company at its home in the Historic Arcade Theatre in Fort Myers. Our last visit, on holiday a year or so ago, was to see an Alan Ayckbourn performed with real gusto and genuine feeling for this quintessentially British play. It was really great to see English characters through... More
