We have been attending shows at the BBM for 6 years, great theater, some really awesome Broadway shows, and diverse concerts. The only negative comment is the difficulty in purchasing tickets on line, more often than not the online system doesn’t work.

My family has seen a few shows at the theater including Wicked and a Christmas show. Any chance I can get to go back and see another show I will take it. The performances are excellent and well worth the price of tickets which are not expensive at all. There is not a bad seat in the theater. The theater... More

This is one of the few art "magnets" of the area, pulling in some good shows. The theatre is on the campus of Florida SouthernWestern State College. It's a nice theatre with good sight lines and sound. We've seen a number of shows here and the lineup throughout the year is pretty good. Certainly the best shows are in-season when... More

I'm encouraged to write about my experience at the Pink Floyd Experience (March 7, 2015), when I see the review dated April 2. Maybe Management needs to figure out how to deal with unruly drunks in the auditorium. Their yelling and constant talking through the show should not be permitted. Also the threat of having drinks spilled all over you... More

Went to see the Australian BeeGees tribute show since my wife and I are big fans from way back. Love the theatre and the staff are very courteous and helpful. As you would expect at a show like this there was going to be some spontaneous dancing, hopefully in the aisles and not in front of us in our seats.... More

We just saw the Texas Tenors at Barbara B Mann. They were excellent. Our tickets were given to us for Christmas from our daughter. Our seat choice was very good, center balcony. The volunteers that work there are very friendly and helpful with any questions, or help you may need. If you want a very nice evening out this would... More

Went to see the Doo Wop show and we were very entertained. Nice venue and even sitting in the nosebleed section was OK. The performance was quite good and brought back some great memories. We would try for better seats but would definitely go back.
