Best place in all of southwestern Florida to see a play

We are patrons of the Rep as well as volunteer ushers. We have been associated with the Rep for several years now and have never been disappointed in the performances presented in this historical theatre.

We've had a seasonal subscription to the Florida Rep Theater in downtown Fort Myers for years. Being from the NYC area, I've been very particular about the theater productions I've wanted to attend outside of NY. To date we've not been disappointed with any of the productions from this wonderful theater company. The actors are top notch, and the plays... More

Loved "spaghetti". One character who tells her story for 2 hours while cooking a dinner for 8. I Laughed and laughed. There is no bad seat in the very intimate theater. There are 4 tables who are served the dinner. I just sat the the audience and was happy.

A very nice, small theater, with convenient parking across the street, a bar with reasonably priced drinks, and just step from shops and restaurants. We saw a children's production of "Bye Bye Birdie", which was surprisingly entertaining. I was amazed at what they had accomplished with such a large group of children in just a few short weeks of theater... More

We recently attended the production of "I loved, I lost, I made spaghetti." It's a one woman show starring Michelle Damato. The small, intimate theater provides the viewer the feeling of being a part of the play. In fact 8 audience members actually participate in the meal which Michelle prepares while lamenting her love life. This is a truly entertaining... More

Fl rep has out done itself again!!! When my wife and I arrived there were four tables set up at the intimate stage with a placard on the table with our name on it. Michelle Damato as Guilia was outstanding. Her performance was exceptional and she cooked for us a three course meal that was great!!! We recommend the Rep... More

Over many years we have had the pleasure of attending the "Rep's" productions and have never been disappointed in the quality of the show or the selection of the material. On a limited budget Florida Rep does great job of lifting Southwest Florida out of the swamp of malls, chain restaurants, low IQ politics and faux-meranian architecture.

We have been season ticket holders for many years and each year the productions get better and better. This is a professional rep company and equal to anything we have seen on Broadway. A premier attraction for Southwest Florida.
