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.

They have an amazing lineup of Broadway shows that come every season. But the venue itself leaves a little room for improvement.

Excellent Performing Arts Hall. All seats are very good for viewing and acoustics are excellent. Not a huge auditorium seating.

We've been to three performances. 'Wicked' was totally non-understandable even though we were in the first row of the balcony. Most of the people behind us left after the intermission. Went to see Bob Newhart. Got orchestra seats and could hear him. Tickets and all advertising, including that day's paper said show starting at 7. Lobby packed by 6:45. Doors... More
