Our dear friend performed in an orchestra while we were in FL. This venue is fabulous in which to watch performances. Nice facilities, parking etc.

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

We had terrific seats and have been looking forward to seeing Jersey Boys at B. B. Mann for nearly 5 months. We loved the music but we were not prepared for the profanity with the constant use of the "F" word throughout the production. If you are taking children to see Jersey Boys, this could be a concern. The show... More

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.
