“Nutcracker ballet disappoints”
Reviewed December 27, 2012 via mobile

Compared to Nutcracker ballets played in Helsinki, Montreal and Toronto, the Moscow Ballet presentation at the Barbara B Mann was a real disappointment. The choreography and the performances were sub-par and the stage setting was skimpy. Moscow Ballet's involvement of local children into many of the scenes was, however, commendable.

We will not go back next year.

“Exceptionally Nice Program Offerings and Theater”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

We purchased season tickets (Broadway Package) last year after going to individual shows at the Barbara Mann for a couple years ... we have found exceptionally nice and a variety of program offerings ... Broadway Shows - Comedy - etc. The theater itself it quite nice and comfortable. Their staff are pleasant and helpful. Tickets are reasonably priced. Recommend.

“Good place to see performers.”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Not a bad seat in the house. Seen a great show there. You need to go there at least once. Not too pricy and you can get season tickets

“Acoustics Could be Better”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

Been to several shows through the years as they always have a nice variety of entertainment and shows. The only fall back is the sound system, especially when there is show with a British accent. It makes it very difficult to understand. I believe they have earphones available for use that you can request. Next time we have a problem following the words, we may give the earphones a chance.
