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

The center was absolutely beautiful. I had the privilege of performing with 250 other musicians on stage for the LGBA 2014 conference of bands and I will never forget it. The center was very accomodating with sufficient dressing rooms and excellent service. Easy to find. A beautiful venue that I hope someday I will have the privilege of performing in... 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.

Came with the family on Sunday to enjoy Elmo. Not sure who had more fun me or the kids. In any event the theatre is clean, the ushers are all sweet senior citizens ready to please and the stage is easy to see.

I had a fantastic time at a recent Broadway show. I took my children to see "Annie" last week and I thoroughly enjoyed my overall experience. The Broward Center is very clean and offers and the docents are friendly. They offered snacks and drink that are a little pricey, but convenient. The production, itself, was well done, and I will...

Went to see Ringo Starr and his All Star Band. We thought the venue was beautiful. The theater, Au Rene, was comfortable and the site lines from where we sat were great. Nice to see a concert such as this in a real theater, rather than a place like the Hard Rock, where the seats are all on the same... More

New place called Marti's recently opened for food/drinks before showtime, a little expensive (beer $9.00). get a theatre subscription for the best plays in the area.

We went to see ANNIE, a musical which we thoroughly enjoyed. The theater itself is beautiful. We have been seated in several locations for different performances and have found that the Mezzanine seems to be the best bang for your buck. One of the nice amenities is the wine and food bar for light fare. This is especially nice if... More
