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?

The shows provided for the season weren't that good, previous seasons have been better. Going to a single show this year, "Blue Man Group"

Enjoyed plays here in the past...my folks were senior volunteers here and they loved working at Barbara Mann. Excellent programs for young and old citizens. Great for families. A jewel of a resource for all.

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.
