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 brought my girlfriend here as an present for her birthday since she has always wanted to see the Lion King play, and I have to say it was amazing!!!! From everything to the costume design, the music, the acting, the set up of the stage, and it was even comical in some parts of the shows, it was just... 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!

I took my family of four to the matinee show of the Lion King. My wife and kids (ages 6 & 8) loved the show! My kids' very first live theater. This is a huge production and heard it's the largest touring show in the US (15 trucks to hold all the gear!). Our seats were on the lower level... More

My wife and I enjoy the theater and saw that the Lion King was debuting the week we were in the Ft. Lauderdale area. We went to the facility box office and purchased tickets for opening night around noon. We bought seats in the front center orchestra, much to our amazement that they were available. After the purchase we explored... More

Broward Center is just wonderful, the location on the New river, the parking, facilities, decor, staff all great. The Center takes on the performance, and "Shen Yun" is an excellent performance. The curtain goes up, the radiance of the dancers, the mesmerizing handmade costumes, the animated backdrops, all give you a sense of beauty.The energy from the dazzling choreography, the... More
