This review is NOT for the squeamish. I go to the Barbara Mann quite often; they put on an excellent mix of music and shows. Going again tomorrow as it happens. All seats have a good view (was in the balcony last night). Sound good for instruments but you will not hear lyrics , if that is important to you.Staff... More

First time here, while I thought the theatre was ok, the sound equipment had so much feed back it was ridiculous, I felt bad for the group playing.

I attended a performance on the Nutcracker by the Moscow Ballet in December 2014. I was excited to see the live performance because I had not seen one in a while. The headlines "Moscow Ballet" made the tickets worth it in my mind - ranging from $100 to $300. I was disappointed. I felt it was not worth the money... More

But. The music was too loud. Patrons were allowed to their seats even in front rows up to 20 minutes after begin of the performance. Needed audience education: don't talk and lough during the performance. New seating is less comfortable than original seating which lasted for well over 20 years. Location is excellent, parking is ample.

A very intimate center, with good valet parking and a very friendly and accommodating staff. The only small issue was the number and size of their bathrooms. They should expand those, but overall it was a great experience to see The Tenors from Canada! Wow, what a show!

Went to see Lewis Blacks "Rant" and wasn't able to enjoy the experience because of the sound system. I've been there a number of times and swore "never again". I think they borrow the sound equipment from the Edison Museum.The mike stand looked like it was a solid cast iron with the mike permanently attached so when Lewis or his... More

We had the opportunity to go to this theatre again, this time to see a performance by Lewis Black. Everything about this is an A+. The local is easy to get to, plenty of places nearby to eat before the show, the organized way the staff handle the hundreds of attendees, the great seats, and comfortable too. Even FREE parking!...

We try to do as many performances as possible. Our all time favorite was Jersey Boys. We've never left unhappy. Always feel that we got our money's worth for the night. This is the best culture available in Fort Myers.

Have been there several times and the evenings are always wonderful. The staff, ushers and facility is excellent with the seating coming in very close to the same. My only comment is that the audio seems to vary quite a bit from performance to performance. Seat selection?
