This was not our first visit to Barbara B Mann and it definitely won’t be our last. While the hall seats several hundred people there really isn’t a bad seat in the house. The acoustics are fabulous and the varied performances keep you coming back.

Great venue to see a show or play, definitely the best place in a 100 mile radius! They do a great job here and it is conveniently located near restaurants and always plenty of parking.

This was our first time at the BBMann. It was lovely--not a bad seat in the house, but very cold. I brought a light jacket, but still cold. Excellent venue!

On the campus of FSW (Florida Southwestern State) sits the very impressive Barbara Mann Arts Hall. The theatre is huge, with seating on both levels they easily accommodated a sold out crowd the night we attended. The Carol King Musical was awesome, but i will...More

I’ve never been to that particular concert. The dress code for the venue seems to be from very casual to dressy. I never wear jeans but dress pants or a dress is appropriate.
