What a wonderful renovation. Came from Orlando to see Joshua Bell's incredible performance, and I am so glad to report that Broward finally has an acoustic theater worthy of such performers. Well done! Also, I was pleased with the handicapped accessibility, although having a wheelchair on the premise for those who might need a little help after using walkers/canes to... More

Loved the club level visit. Great food and drink. Very comfortable. No valet charge. And got to enjoy and relax after the show with coffee and desert. Highly recommend.

Saw the Cirque du Soleil here and it proved excellent. We had club sets thus valet and bites before. As for the bites, they were very basic and the room was quite crowded. Not a recommendation from me. The Club Seats are very good in location but much nicer in comfort. Once done, moving on...Not worth the extra for the... More

The Broward Center for the Performing Arts is conveniently located off of Broward Blvd East. Our party of four chose Tarpon Bend restaurant for any early lunch. The restaurant is within walking distance of the Center but the weather was iffy at best. We easily found metered parking on the same street as the restaurant and enjoyed lunch. A free... More

It is very hard to find a bad seat in the audience. Seating is comfortable and with a lot of leg room.

Growing up in NY, I've missed going to Broadway but with the shows that come to BCPA, I've been able to see many great Broadway shows, concerts, enjoyed the ballet, symphony and more. It's a beautiful venue on a gorgeous riverfront right in downtown Ft. Lauderdale.

We've seen many many different shows here from Doo Wop to Broadway Plays to everything in between and it struck me that I really love coming here. The location right near the river walk in downtown Fort Lauderdale is excellent, there are many choices of parking around the venue, there are a number of restaurants within walking distance (and now...

We held the 2014 ISS Gala Awards and Dinner here and the venue, service and food was outstanding. The "Dinner" was held outside, the weather kept fine. We had several food stations situated around the function, ranging from Sushi, Italian pizza, Salad bar, Red meat for the carnivores' and a Wok bar. It all worked very well and a great... More
