The offerings found here are many and varied. The Broadway touring shows are so well done. There are many other productions to enjoy, the acoustics are exceptional and the Hall is very attractive. Located in South Ft. Myers which is very busy at any time of day so if dinner before the show is a priority make sure to make... More

I guess the theater took one of the prior reviews to heart. They turned off many of the speakers for the first half of the Lovin' Spoonful concert so that you could not make out the lyrics in the back half of the hall. Luckily they corrected this before the Lovin' Spoonful came on. This is totally unacceptable for a... More

Went here for a tribute to Elvis concert with Chris Macdonald, Great concert hall, great aquostics and easy accessibility. Parking was easy and they also have valet. Every seat is a good one, no problems seeing the stage from any seat.

We saw a show here last night and as always it was wonderful. The accoustics are perfect here. The seats are comfortable and you can see from all angles on the first floor. In the balcony areas, it is a little tricky. The farther back you go the less you can see. They do have a full bar and offer... More

Having lived in Ft. Myers for many years, I have been to numerous performances at bbmann. Last evening we went to the Gino Vanelli concert and opted to leave half way through. The noise (music) was deafening! Lyrics were indistinguishable! A most unpleasant evening. This small venue does not lend itself well to "rock concerts" due to the poor acoustics.

Let me start by saying the venue, The Barbara Mann, was very nice and easy to find. We went to the Kenny G concert, which was billed as a Christmas concert. So, we get there and the hall was nice, but no holiday decorations at all. None! I thought this would be a good way to get into the spirit.... More

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
