Bring your ear plugs if you are a baby boomer

Great venue, however the acoustics are very loud! Recommend bringing your ear plugs or sit in the back....the very back!

Tha BEST venue in town for music and theater. Not a bad seat in the house, acoustics are GREAT, and parking is FREE and easy. I wish they would have more Rock N Roll acts but its hard to draw Rock to Fort Myers. Chris the box office manager is the BEST! He has never let me down on a... More

We recently saw the Maks & Val - I did it my way tour at the Barbara B Mann. I love the intimacy of the theater. Seats were comfortable. The only issue was the traffic getting out of the venue. It was a nightmare and took almost an hour. I would have left earlier if I knew it would be... More

Amazing show in every way. Great music, amazing choreography and beautiful costumes. High end Las Vegas quality show. Max and Val spoke to the audience which was a plus. Wish I could see this show again. If you seats are not close to the stage take binoculars. I did and it made all the difference! Congratulations to Max, Val and... More

Loved the music of ABBA, but had difficulty hearing the singers. The acoustics were way off. Have been to other concerts at BBM & noticed problems with their sound system.

I swore I would never attend another concert at BB Mann several years ago. After going to Steely Dan, Earth Wind and Fire, and Boz Scaggs over the past decade, I always walk out going "that sound was dreadful". I got talked into going to the Styx concert on May 10th. I was hoping for something different. It disappointing once... More

My wife and I have been season ticket holders for seven years or more so obviously we are very happy with the show quality. We have never seen a poor one. Naturally some are better than others depending on your taste. It took us a few years to find ourselves on the list strata high enough to select the excellent... More

We took our daughter and our daughter to the Illusionists on Sunday, April 10th. It was fantastic! My wife had purchase tickets online and we had seen reviews about how tired the hall was and how the sound system was not working properly so we were a bit tentative paying nearly $300 for tickets to this show. We found the... More

BBMann is a bit unusual in that most of the seats are in the balcony, not on the main level, and the hall is fairly narrow. The main level stops just under the front of the balcony, and the balcony goes way up above the lobby. Tip: pay the extra money to sit in the orchestra, boxes, or front of... More
