Our group of seven attended the Weird Al show last Saturday and enjoyed the theater as much as the show. Loved them both. The theater is beautiful and rivals the best that Broadway has to offer. All seats are good (of course some are better than others) and the staff makes it easy to find your way around. We always... More

This place offers some really good entertainment value at far less than New York prices. I have gone there several times and would return again.

I have seen a few Broadway tours over the last few years at this center and it is one of the best South Florida has to offer. This place makes me feel like I am back in NYC theater! Parking is easy and ushers are very friendly. I would highly recommend!

Actually the Broward Center is a complex of performance spaces and bars and restaurants. Think of the Broward Center as the Lincoln Center for Broward County, with a similar center North in West Palm Beach, the Kravis Center, and the Arsht Center to the South in Miami. All offer top venues with comfortable seating, great sight lines, and convenient parking.

Visited here for a rock show and was very impressed. There’s a huge car park in walking distance, which was surprisingly quick to get in and out of. The auditorium itself is well laid out with excellent visibility and great acoustics. The sound system and visual effects were good, but I guess that arrives with bands so could vary show... More

Excellent. I had the opportunity to see the wonderful ballet Giselle with the amazing performance of Alexander Gudunov. Everything was magic about the place

In a way I'm glad to see here, and on that big search engine, other reviews about poor customer service. I acknowledge the staff seem to be all-volunteer, and kudos to them; but somehow we ended up with tickets that 2 other couples had... how can you sell the same seats to 3 parties? We were there first so we... More

The seating is set so there is no bad seat for sight and sound. Parking right across the street. Before show a stroll down the river walk is very nice. Fun tastey resturants walking distance less than 10 minutes

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
