A world class venue. Fine sound system, good site lines and some wonderful shows. The only thing I do NOT like about Broward Center is that it is built VERY VERTICALLY and the higher up gives you a feeling of falling.

This is one of the nicest theaters I've been in, both of them and with the new additions this has made Broward Center a destination for good a evening for the arts of all kinds. They have done a beautiful job and should be seem by all.

We really enjoyed CSN at this fantastic venue. The Broward Center is a great place for concerts and plays. We both would have liked to hear more of our favorites from CSN. Thats why I did not give it an excellant. Still in all we love them.

The theatre is maintained very well. Wonderful to have shows stop in on tour here. There are two theatres. a larger one for more of the bigger broadway block busters that visit; and slightly smaller for more of the local venus that may play or those that are not as well known yet.

Not long after I first met my husband, we went to see Jersey Boys at the Broward arts Center. It was a special and romantic evening. There's really nothing like going to the theater. The Broward Center is beautiful and most of all comfortable. The sound system shined through the songs of the four seasons. During intermission we had a... More

Season ticket holder and love the shows at the Broward Center. The drinks are very overpriced. The sound system seems to have gotten better over the last 2 years

This was our second visit to this venue and once again we found it to be a really nice experience, except for how parking is handling in the public garage. They only take cash and do not put much enthusiasm into their work. This however is not a reflection on the venue itself which is beautiful, accommodating and comfortable.

Beautiful theatre with plenty of legroom. Ballet and theatre is worthy of Lincoln Center in NYC. Quality of ballet and theatre is outstanding. Amenities and special seating and before and after theatre food and drink are lovely. A great place for Floridians and New Yorkers!
