“Poor acoustics and forget show times!”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

We've been to three performances. 'Wicked' was totally non-understandable even though we were in the first row of the balcony. Most of the people behind us left after the intermission. Went to see Bob Newhart. Got orchestra seats and could hear him. Tickets and all advertising, including that day's paper said show starting at 7. Lobby packed by 6:45. Doors didn't open until 7:30 with show starting at 8. Won't waste our money again. Did see Jersey boys - same seats as Wicked and that was fine but hit or miss, too expensive for a miss!

“The best!”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

You can always count on a good show at the BBM. And there isn't a bad seat in the house. Thank goodness it's in Fort Myers!

“Rock Concert”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

We went to see Scotty McCrery in March and it was a lot of fun. People of all ages were there and he gave a wonderful show. They came from all over the state, and my daughter came from Georgia to see him. It was a wonderful evening for all.

“Amazing Night Out”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

My daughter and I spent the evening watching one of their performances. It was spectacular, enjoying, awesome, the most relaxing night. The hall was well kept, clean lobby and bathroom. The staff was friendly. We plan to visit more often.

Recently Remodeled! Very clean, not to big, every seat is good! Good sound for concerts! All the shows have been great. We have been going there since it opened. Great place & much needed in Ft. Myers!
