Went to see Bob Dylan last night, Bob and his band were great! However, the whole experience was really ruined by the security at the event. As at many venues today there was no photography, video or cell phones allowed during the show. That is fine. However, security took it to a whole new level with aisle monitors going up... More

They charge more than NYC prices for a performance and the seats are all sold out before you can buy them. Bad parking, ok setting, but why charge so mush.

We thought the sound was great. The concert itself was awesome! 2 complaints: 1) Drink Concession: wine was $7. It was (no exaggeration) MAYBE 3 ounces, which is about 2 sips. Cheap Pinot too. The guy behind us wanted to get 2 portions in one cup which would have been $14. But no, the lady said she would have to... More

Fantastic intimate venue to see a wide variety of events. They have concerts, comedians and tons of other shows. We saw O.A.R. last night and it was absolutely perfect. They have a full liquor bar which seems to get the crowd pretty loose.

Any seat in the house is OK for the music performances and are quite inexpensive in the balcony especially. But the selection of performers brings us back here at least once a month in season. Parking is easy and getting in and out is easy. Usually shows are nice and early at 7 pm too which gets us home at... More

Great show by Ron, his wife and Alex Reymundo. The only down side was the sound system was weak in the upper levels. Much of the stand up dialog could not be heard,

Tha BEST venue in town for music and theater. Not a bad seat in the house, acoustics are GREAT, and parking is FREE and easy. I wish they would have more Rock N Roll acts but its hard to draw Rock to Fort Myers. Chris the box office manager is the BEST! He has never let me down on a... More

We recently saw the Maks & Val - I did it my way tour at the Barbara B Mann. I love the intimacy of the theater. Seats were comfortable. The only issue was the traffic getting out of the venue. It was a nightmare and took almost an hour. I would have left earlier if I knew it would be... More
