My husband & I went to see Robin Williams, rest his soul, & David Steinburg. The seating was very comfortable & ushers were very helpful, as it was our first time there. I would've expected the audio to be a bit higher, especially with that many seniors there. We were pleasantly surprised at the organization & didn't feel like we... More

Have many well known artists from the 50's to today performing. And, from time to time have well known speakers during the discussion tours to SW Florida too.

They have an amazing lineup of Broadway shows that come every season. But the venue itself leaves a little room for improvement.

Excellent Performing Arts Hall. All seats are very good for viewing and acoustics are excellent. Not a huge auditorium seating.

We've been to three performances. 'Wicked' was totally non-understandable even though we were in the first row of the balcony. Most of the people behind us left after the intermission. Went to see Bob Newhart. Got orchestra seats and could hear him. Tickets and all advertising, including that day's paper said show starting at 7. Lobby packed by 6:45. Doors... More

You can always count on a good show at the BBM. And there isn't a bad seat in the house. Thank goodness it's in Fort Myers!

We went to see Scotty McCrery in March and it was a lot of fun. People of all ages were there and he gave a wonderful show. They came from all over the state, and my daughter came from Georgia to see him. It was a wonderful evening for all.

My daughter and I spent the evening watching one of their performances. It was spectacular, enjoying, awesome, the most relaxing night. The hall was well kept, clean lobby and bathroom. The staff was friendly. We plan to visit more often.

Reserve your seat in Orchestra and enjoy an up close and intimate show. Warm and welcoming, BB Mann is a great theater. Beware of row ZZ ... it's 'up there' ... sound is good everywhere, but the higher you go, the more you'll need glasses. I have seen Cats, Phantom of the Opera, Robert Cray, Nutcracker, rock bands, local orchestras... More
