“Nice Performing Hall”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is where all the "traveling" and high end Broadway style shows come to play in Fort Myers. Nice performance hall. Have seen multiple shows here and enjoyed them all.

“A Great Theater”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

This theatre brings in Broadway shows ...The tickets are reasonable ...the seating comfortable ...they do have balcony seating with steps ..my only negative remark would be,the best seating is held by season ticket holders so I usually don't get the seats I would prefer....

“Broadway Sized Stage”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

BB Mann has all of the big touring Broadway Shows. Due to their Broadway Sized stage they can accommodate a full stage of actors and effects, even Phantom of the Opera's Chandelier opening scene and the boat canals, So the theater always has the best..

“This is no Phil”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

This theater is a huge wannabe Kennedy Center for the
arts. The seating is very uncomfortable and old. The sound system is totally inadequate. The lighting is poor. It is very expensive for what is received as entertainment. One should go to the Phil in Naples and compare the two.

I suggest that this facility be demolished and rebuilt properly.

“ALWAYS SOMETHIING NEW ON THE STAGE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

Yes there are bad seats in the house. When you sit in the double letters in the balcony. The music or spoken word are not clear up there. They do offer hearing aids, but not binoculers. The stairs up are not the safest. Two people fell tonight, one up the stairs and one down the stairs with drinks in their hands. Too bad 2 patrons were covered in Wine.
The quality of the shows are great and I try not to miss many shows
