There couldn't be a bad seat in the house. The facility is colorful, easy to reach and provides a variety of programs that appeal to a variety of interests. Covered parking is available across the street but residential side roads are free. If you choose to use the parking lot be sure to arrive very early as there is frequently... More

We saw Alvin Ailey Dance last week. Sensational Show and Theater. But... $15 for parking, $12 for a small glass of wine, ticketmaster $$$ addons to buy online all equal almost the price of a third ticket. Maybe that's why the show was not sold out as in the past and why no one was at the bar at intermission.... More

My husband and I went with a group to see the show Tiny and Tony's Wedding at the Abdo New River Room. This is a dinner theater. This room is part of the Broward Center for the Performing Arts. The facility is new and beautiful. Everything was very clean. The show was a lot of fun. The food was average... More

As a season subscriber for the past 10 years, I totally enjoy this venue, it's ease of parking, as well as the Broadway Across America package. Great shows locally....who could ask for more!

Saw the lion king here. Great sight lines even from the bad seats. Parking was convenient and not terribly overpriced. Overall it was a very nice experience

We took our grandsons to see LK tonight. It was magnificent! But stay away from the souvenir counter on the lower level of the lobby. I went to it to purchase a Simba stuffed animal ($35) and program ($10). This was how I was greeted: ". . . and how can we help you before we SHUT DOWN for the... More

Brought a friend to see Lion King in Fort Lauderdale, January 2015, the second time for me. Play was fabulous; my only complaint was the costumes for the lions. The male and female lions were dressed like natives rather than lions. My friend kept waiting for the lions to appear. On Broadway, they were definitely dressed more like lions. The... More

I have loved the movie always, but this production really blew my mind! The music was wonderful and the characters and costumes were awesome! The arts center is beautiful with comfortable seating and lighting. Special effects of live... More

we have been here twice in the recent few month. Attended different musical events. My only concern is the air conditioning. It is very efficient so plan on being very cool. Bring a sweater or jacket!
