We have season tickets for Broadway Across America at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts and each year the entire venue makes upgrades in both the physical plant and customer service. The shows are always enjoyable, and the evening itself is always a delight.

We were here visiting from out of state to see the Boz Scaggs concert. What a beautiful venue! We managed to get the lower level box seats. Incredible! We will definitely travel here again to see some other performance in the future. This venue reminded us of the Tobin Center we have here in beautiful San Antonio.

First time here. Beautiful theatre with elevators and rest rooms on all floors. Sound was great and there doesn't seem to be a bad seat in the house.

We attended the afternoon performance of Pippin. We were twelve rows center from the stage. Had a great view of the entire performance. Looking at the layout of the theatre during intermission, I don't think there really is a poor seat in this house.

I hate to let more people in on this, but if you go for the Club level you will elevate the experience exponentially. It is more expensive, but includes a buffet dinner (limited choices but good), and drinks for the hour before the show, drinks and some food at intermission, and coffee and dessert after. Plus free valet. Absolutely a... More

What can I say. I've always liked Broward Center for the Performing Arts. It's a clean and very attractive building. Pretty much all of the seats are great.

A great performing arts venue. Both big and smaller theaters. Monthly Gold Coast Jazz concerts are a must do and Broward Center attracts great musicians....Elvis Costello's recent concert was outstanding!

I go to alot of Broadway shows here. I saw Trisha Yearwood. All the shows are top notch. The drinks are expensive, except $2 coffee (only hot) and $5-11 snacks. Valet is $20, Garage parking for events is $12. They close the skywalk and no-one will answer the buzzer if you are late and you will be locked out and... More

First time in this theater, first time ever to see Itzhak Perlman live and both were an unforgettable experience. The entire complex is gorgeous and the service is great, the sound, the lighting and the performer itself were perfect. Looking forward to return very soon.
