Having attended the Florida Rep theatre several times in the last few years with family and friends, we have always had a great experience. This is a wonderful theatre experience in Fort Myers, and an excellent asset for this city. The Arcade theatre is a great venue, the plays are always entertaining and well performed, there is free parking across... More

We preordered and printed tickets online. We found nearby street parking on a Thursday evening prior to dinner; river district has lots of nearby dining options. Theater is small, seats a little dated but reasonably comfortable. Set / sound / lighting and acting were all top notch. Didn't care for the play (The Cocktail Hour) despite rave review from Wall...

We chose the Sunday afternoon showing of the Seafarer in the small theater. It was a self proclaimed black comedy with a Christmas theme. It was very well acted. The small theater allowed for up close and personal seating. You felt like you were in the room with the performers. This is a unique venue to watch a play unfold... More

This was our first journey to the Florida Rep and I must say that for a small theatre the show was amazing. There is not a bad seat in the house although the seats need some upgrading. We were treated to A Christmas story and the show followed the actual movie fairly close. There were some things done differently but... More

The best acting in Southwest Florida. I go 2 to 3 times a year. The set design is always spot on. There really is not a bad seat in the Theater. The historic theater gives it a great feel. Highly recommend to residents and visitors.

My wife and I attended the play "A Christmas Story" at the Florida Repertory Theater. This is a wonderful venue that combines a beautiful old building with a modest size stage and seating. The seats are mostly comfortable and there is not a bad seat anywhere. We will return again and again. This play was very good also.
