You will always be guaranteed a top notched experience by very talented performers. The staff is extremely courteous and gracious. As with most theater venues, the drinks and snacks are pricey.

Have seen many performances here and have always had a great time. The staff is friendly and helpful, although a little expensive on the drinks and snacks.

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.

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
