From off-Broadway Plays, to the Southwest Florida Symphony Orchestra, to various Comedians and other concerts, this venue offers something to please nearly everyone that is a fan of the arts! Bring a sweater; the air conditioning was definitely running on high!

This venue is located on college campus, consequently, tricky to get in and out easily. It has good acoustics but somewhat convoluted access n seating. Performance was entertaining , although not New York Bdwy. Quality. If you go, spring for pricier tickets on lower level.

Attended a Joe Bonamassa concert. This is a beautiful venue with wonderful sound, comfortable seats and other amenities . Seats approximately 2500-3000. Would consider attending future events here

We enjoyed Book of Mormon. Although the theatre is looking dated I thought the seating and sight lines were good. However, it does need more restrooms. But, my major complaint was the parking and the generally unsafe conditions in the parking lot. They desperately need...More

Nice facility. Parking is close, but crossing streets is problematic. Not the most comfortable seating. Good acoustics. They have great national tour shows. Overall, a great community facility.

Really enjoyed the performance of Book of Mormon at Barbara Mann last night. We sat orchestra right and the seats were excellent. The performance was a bit "blue" but very funny and not offensive [at least to us]. B.Mann could use an off-duty police officer...More

I have gone to BB Mann many times over the years. This year I was taken aback by the intensity of the security! What a change from last year. It says so much about the times we live in, and it is very sad. I...More

We like parking around back but if there's another event on campus that night at the new arena you'll be searching for a parking spot so leave plenty of time then. But it looks like April 5 should be easy parking.
