On the campus of FSW (Florida Southwestern State) sits the very impressive Barbara Mann Arts Hall. The theatre is huge, with seating on both levels they easily accommodated a sold out crowd the night we attended. The Carol King Musical was awesome, but i will...More

Romantic & Beyond was a great concert by the Southwest Florida Symphony. It featured Itamar Zorman playing the violin, he was fantastic. The venue is well suited for any type of performance.

We saw the Celtic Women concert here and both the sound and the sight lines were very good. I think the facility is a fine home for the local orchestras and traveling performance groups. On the other hand it is narrow and long so you...More

I’ve never been to that particular concert. The dress code for the venue seems to be from very casual to dressy. I never wear jeans but dress pants or a dress is appropriate.

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.
