“First Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

Our first visit was November 1 to see "Social Security" which we enjoyed. The actors were superb, the script hilarious, production very professional. We intend to return each and every month throughout the season. There is not a bad seat in the house and free parking is offered in the parking lot to the north side toward the river.

“Social Security”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

This was a nice tight little play. Actors were pros and therefore an enjoyable experience. We've been to many plays both amateur and professional in Chicago and touring companies as well. This was an unexpected pleasure and we'd go again. The company is housed in an odd location and it was a bit hard for us to find being from out of town and unfamiliar with the area. I was impressed by the number of donors listed in the program. Many, many grey hairs in the audience, not that that is bad!

“A real find in Fort Myers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

After spending a couple of winters in Fort Myers, we discovered the Florida Repertory Theatre. Since then, we have enjoyed many plays in both the "big" theater and the smaller one. The acting is excellent and the sets are extremely well-done. They do a good variety of shows, ranging from serious to farce. The theater itself is in a restored arcade and is located in downtown Fort Myers, so there are lots of options for dinner before or after the show. My only caveat would be that it is often quite chilly in the larger theater, so take a sweater or jacket. Overall, this is professional, enjoyable theater.

“Best buy in town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

The Florida Rep is consistent in presenting the best entertainment in Ft. Myers. The shows are entertaining and professional. Comfortable theater with convenient parking. I have been a season subscriber for years and look forward to every show.

“An unexpected gem--great theatre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

Coming from NY, I have seen numerous theatre shows on and off Broadway. The shows at the FL Rep are every bit as good as Broadway. In the 30+ shows that I've seen here, there has not been a single one that hasn't had excellent, professional acting and set design. I highly recommend this theatre for anyone who loves theatre.
