We enjoyed "Dividing the Estate"...about the family squabbles regarding their inheritance after the death of the parents. The actors were great, the acoustics in this old theater were wonderful...not a bad seat in the house...will definitely go back to see more plays here!

Saw a terrific presentation in their little theater featuring the tunes of Gershwin with tremendous talented performers who could not only sing, but dance and act at the same level as you would see in the Big Apple. Very impressive!

I personally like this theatre even though it is small & seating is fairly close (to one another & stage). Shows have been mostly good.

Florida Rep Theater presents wonderful plays--musicals, comedies, drama--in both their Main Stage and their smaller ArtStage from October to May. The perfomances by Equity actors--whether they make you cry, or laugh or think about soul-searching topics--will not disappoint. This past season has had many sold-out perfomances, so it is best to buy a season subscription as we did back in... More

My husband and I went with another couple after winning free tickets. We were pleasantly surprised. We had great seats in the second row, but it is a small theater with no obstructed views. The cast was very talented and put on a wonderful performance. The time went by quickly with no fidgeting in our seats! We will definitely go... More

Loved the theatre in the round. The music was fabulous. 5 persons so talented. I will definitely go back to future productions in this historic building in downtown Ft Myers.

5 top notch performers plus delightful music in a romantic setting. We hated to see the performance end! From beginning to end no actor/ singer could have been better.

Superb!! This was a terrific production from a 5 member cast in a very intimate theatre. The actors are top notch! Their singing, dancing, and piano accompaniment to George & Ira Gershwin's music and lyrics, is as good as it gets! One of the most enjoyable shows I have seen in quite some time. The trivia about George Gershwin you... More

I loved everything about this place, the ambiance, the actors, the play, the chairs-- yes, the old fashioned seats. It's so nice to find old theatres that retain the charm of yesteryear and this fits the bill. If I lived nearby, I would definitely subscribe for the season. The acting was exceptional. Overall, it was a treat and when in... More

Thoroughly charmed by the revue Fascinatin' Gershwin at the Rep. There are two theaters here; this show was in the smaller venue, making you part of the 1930's cocktail party set. The actors even include you from time to time, so look sharp (e.g., an askance glance accompanied by "I didn't know you'd be here!"). The production values were fabulous... More
