Have been to many concerts and plays. The place is great for all venues. Anywhere on the bottom level are great seats. All the way in the back of the upper level --- not so good!

We saw The Wizard of Oz in January. It was absolutely delightful. Our ages ranged from 7 to 72. We were all thrilled. The production, sets lighting and sound were all Broadway worthy. It's great to have a venue like this in Fort Myers.

We attended several concerts by the SWFL Symphony and we enjoyed each one. There is not a bad seat in the auditorium. There are plenty of restrooms and a very nice refreshment area during intermission

Very comfortable theater with accommodations for handicapped and seniors. Excellent performances. Seats are comfortable with good views of the stage. Great place to see Broadway-type shows as well as concerts.

Had never been to this venue, and my expectation was a true theater. You know the kind: all seats have "good enough" sight lines and ample room, the building offers enough restrooms, and any food is kept to lobby & banned from theater proper. None of this was true here! Think "SILO" for all the seating (the mezz & balcony)... More

I love Bob Newhart's type of humor. He's still funny. I thought, though, that the show was a bit short (< 1.5 hours) for the cost of the tickets, $65 each. I understand that a man of his age may not be able to physically complete a bigger/longer show. He did have an orchestra and singer to fill the first... More

All three shows were top-rate and highly enjoyable. The music brought back many fond memories of the 60s and 70s. The Barbara Mann theater is a fine place to see/hear a musical... More

Went to show. Tickets said 7 o'clock, but we got there and was told that was an error, show starts at 7:30. Not a big deal except at 7:06 the doors still not open. You have many elderly people sitting on the floor, for what seems like no reason. Why not let them sit in all the empty seats. Makes... More
