“Broadway at your doorstep...here in Ft. Myers”

Barbara B Mann Performing Arts Hall
Ranked #39 of 121 things to do in Fort Myers
Attraction details
Reviewed October 18, 2012

The management brings in great shows...national touring companies of such shows as "Jersey Boys," and "Wicked." Seats are all good. Ushers are volunteers and very adept at their job. We are thrilled to be able to enjoy the beauty of southwest Florida and top quality entertainment without having to travel to the real Broadway or other prime show locations.

As season ticket holders, we go to as many shows as possible. There are great show performances every season, and a lot of variety.....from Broadway shows to big name entertainers. I have to disagree with some reviews about the great acoustics. Many times we are unable to understand what the performers are saying or singing...and it is not just us, others have the same complaint. It's not that we can't hear...the volume is more than sufficient, and even too loud at times, which seems to affect the clarity. The theater does provide listening devices if you do have trouble hearing...just ask for them before the show in the lobby area (under the stairs usually).

For the best prices, try to sit in front rows of balcony seating. The view of the stage is great from there at a more reasonable cost for the performance. Check online for seating charts if necessary. If you get too far back, you will be in nose bleed section and it will be difficult to see performers clearly.

This is a Ft. Myers definitely worth attending and won't detract from your beach time!!

We attended a Christmas show and were so impressed with the acoustics that the facility provides. We are fortunate to have this venue in the area.

For the price of the tickets I feel the seats could have been way better then what they are. Wooden seats are just pure back breakers, thank goodness for intermission. I should of put up a cushion stand during the intermission, or a chiropractor stand.
