“From the great Philadelphia Orchestra to popular and rock music -- something for everyone!”
Reviewed July 3, 2013 via mobile

The Mann Center has definitely improved the concert going experience in the last couple of years. From the parking attendants to the food to the musical offerings -- all improved greatly. Yes, it can be warm on summer nights but what is better then wonderful music under the stars or even under their roof? It is convenient to drive there and parking is ample! Take a picnic for the lawn or enjoy food from the concessions or restaurant. Great view of the city skyline.

“Fun venue. Cool location.”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

I like the way the space is distributed here. They have the seats and stage, but from the lawn you can see everything just fine! I like that the lawn is easy to get around. You aren't cramped in and stuck in the middle; they have a nice little area right behind the lawn with food vendors and restrooms. From this area you can still see the stage which is cool. I really like the set up of the Mann. I also love the location! Right in the middle of Fairmount. It is lovely :D

“Too hot in humid Philadelphia”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

It's an old outdoor theatre, parking is terrible and when it's hot; there is no air. Sorry, we didn't enjoy, but it's an outside venue

“Hard to see”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

Even though top dollar was paid, visibility to the stage was poor. It is outside and cold if it is spring and you are on the lawn. The 'under the roof' seating is very tight and not elevated enough to see over the person in front of you.

“Magnificent Mann”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

Nicest place anywhere to see/hear a concert on a beautiful summer's eve. We saw Bob Dylan there last summer and are anticipating a new season as the warmer weather starts to arrive.
