Saw the Cirque du Soleil here and it proved excellent. We had club sets thus valet and bites before. As for the bites, they were very basic and the room was quite crowded. Not a recommendation from me. The Club Seats are very good in location but much nicer in comfort. Once done, moving on...Not worth the extra for the... More

The Broward Center for the Performing Arts is conveniently located off of Broward Blvd East. Our party of four chose Tarpon Bend restaurant for any early lunch. The restaurant is within walking distance of the Center but the weather was iffy at best. We easily found metered parking on the same street as the restaurant and enjoyed lunch. A free... More

It is very hard to find a bad seat in the audience. Seating is comfortable and with a lot of leg room.

Growing up in NY, I've missed going to Broadway but with the shows that come to BCPA, I've been able to see many great Broadway shows, concerts, enjoyed the ballet, symphony and more. It's a beautiful venue on a gorgeous riverfront right in downtown Ft. Lauderdale.

We've seen many many different shows here from Doo Wop to Broadway Plays to everything in between and it struck me that I really love coming here. The location right near the river walk in downtown Fort Lauderdale is excellent, there are many choices of parking around the venue, there are a number of restaurants within walking distance (and now...

We held the 2014 ISS Gala Awards and Dinner here and the venue, service and food was outstanding. The "Dinner" was held outside, the weather kept fine. We had several food stations situated around the function, ranging from Sushi, Italian pizza, Salad bar, Red meat for the carnivores' and a Wok bar. It all worked very well and a great... More

We saw a concert here, and there really isn't a bad seat in the house. Layout is great and sound is very good. The venue itself is a classic theater layout and is very well maintained. My only issue is access to the entrance of the venue. Parking is a joke in parts of Downtown Ft Lauderdale (sparsely located and... More

This venue hosts many touring groups performing first class Broadway shows at a reasonable cost. They also host other entertainment acts. There is convenient parking and the theater now offers a very nice restaurant with a view of the Intercoastal waterway while you dine. There are many other restaurants within easy walking distance of the theatre.
