This was our first trip down to the venue from Palm Beach County. Easy ride, easy to find and we went early enough to park in the parking garage across the street and get a bite to eat before the show. The venue is gorgeous. Our seats were terrific. The sound was great. The ushers were helpful. And exiting the... More

This place is close to the perfect place to see a concert. It is big enough (2,900, I think) to draw good artists. But it is not too big to have any bad seats. The place is classy and clean. There are abundant bathrooms and bars. There are nice balconies that one can step out on for smoking or just... More

I went to see Motown The Musical at this venue and fell in love. This is a really nice looking theater, I had a box seat and loved it. The show was awesome, I missed it when I was in New York but was so glad I got to see it here. I love the location of this venue, its... More

Saw this play yesterday as a matinee. I saw it in New York City two years ago. Very good. The talent of Clifton Oliver as Barry Gordon Jr. was phenomenal. The voice of Diana Ross played by Allison Semmes was spot on. Her speech, mannerisms, style of dress, were just terrific. The Jackson Five were also portrayed excellent from what... More

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
