“Marry Poppins at Mann Performing Arts Hall”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

From entry to exit, this was a well managed and operated facility on the day of our visit. The campus of Edison State College is very attractive and accessible. I was fortunate to have Center Stage tickets about 13 rows from the orchestra pit. The accoustics and sight picture were absolutely wonderful. The greeter/ushers were extremely nice and helpful. My wife was very impressed with the foresight to have a staff member stationed to speed up operations in the ladies restroom during intermission.

“Pleasantly surprised with the show and theatre”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

We attended an open house there that included a backstage tour. The following week we saw a concert there that we enjoyed very much. We are seeing another show there in March. We recently relocated to SW Florida from Chicago. We are used to fine theatres and we were pleasantly surprised with Barbara Mann. The lobby is very elegant, the seating is comfortable and ticket prices are reasonable. We chose main floor seats both times. All the ushers are knowledgeable and courteous. Their calendar offers a wide variety of selections, from concerts to plays, to comedians ( Jerry Sienfeld) , so there is something for all tastes.

Reviewed January 13, 2013

Great theatre no matter whether you are seeing a play, a dance recital, orchestra performance, or a concert by Paul Todd it is a perfect venue to enjoy theatre at its best. Great acoustics. I've never been disappointed.

“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.
