The Broward Center for the Performing Arts is an outstanding place. We usually attend many concerts and performances there each year. First, the setting for the Center is magnificent. It is located on a bend of the New River in downtown Fort Lauderdale. Our favorite ways of approaching the Center is to either walk the Riverwalk or arrive by Water... More

The sales staff & manager are unprofessional & inept. They lied about a show without knowing the details & when we found out they would not accept responsibility. They let us wait 1/2 hr in the blazing sun before the useless supervisor appeared. They should be ashamed of themselves. They have lost snowbirds who have been buying tickets since they... More

Saw the show called "Anything Goes" tonight. My wife and I have probably been to at least a 200 shows in New York, Chicago, and London. We would not recommend this show. This is a comedy show with a very nice one song. Problem is the comedy is at your most basic level like laughing over tripping over your own... More

I had my first visit to the Broward Center to see Kathy Griffin. I had heard the center was state of the art and beautiful, but I was blown away by it! It's modern, flows nicely and feels like a great European opera house with modern touches. Visually it's stunning. We had Club Level tickets that is on the Mezzanine... More

I went to the Broward Centre for the first time last night to see Kathy Griffin. She was hilarious! I was really impressed with the venue. The seating was comfortable and the theatre looked classy and new. The bar area was large and one could enjoy outdoor seating. Access to the parking area was quick and easy following the show.

We have season tickets for Broadway Across America at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts and each year the entire venue makes upgrades in both the physical plant and customer service. The shows are always enjoyable, and the evening itself is always a delight.

We were here visiting from out of state to see the Boz Scaggs concert. What a beautiful venue! We managed to get the lower level box seats. Incredible! We will definitely travel here again to see some other performance in the future. This venue reminded us of the Tobin Center we have here in beautiful San Antonio.

First time here. Beautiful theatre with elevators and rest rooms on all floors. Sound was great and there doesn't seem to be a bad seat in the house.

We attended the afternoon performance of Pippin. We were twelve rows center from the stage. Had a great view of the entire performance. Looking at the layout of the theatre during intermission, I don't think there really is a poor seat in this house.
