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 to add security or police to improve traffic flow and protect pedestrians. It takes far... More

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 in their parking lot after the performance. With all the cars trying to exit and... 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 saw Book of Mormons, which was very good. I had a LARGE man sitting next... More

I have attended many events at Barbara B Mann and thoroughly enjoyed them. However the ticket office has earned my negative review. I ordered tickets to a performance and chose the mail option for tickets so that I would receive a reminder of the performance. The tickets did not arrive and we did not go. When I received an e...

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.
