Visited here for a rock show and was very impressed. There’s a huge car park in walking distance, which was surprisingly quick to get in and out of. The auditorium itself is well laid out with excellent visibility and great acoustics. The sound system and visual effects were good, but I guess that arrives with bands so could vary show... More

Excellent. I had the opportunity to see the wonderful ballet Giselle with the amazing performance of Alexander Gudunov. Everything was magic about the place

In a way I'm glad to see here, and on that big search engine, other reviews about poor customer service. I acknowledge the staff seem to be all-volunteer, and kudos to them; but somehow we ended up with tickets that 2 other couples had... how can you sell the same seats to 3 parties? We were there first so we... More

The seating is set so there is no bad seat for sight and sound. Parking right across the street. Before show a stroll down the river walk is very nice. Fun tastey resturants walking distance less than 10 minutes

The Broward Center for the Performing Arts is an outstanding place. We usually attend many concerts and performances there each year. First, the setting for the Center is magnificent. It is located on a bend of the New River in downtown Fort Lauderdale. Our favorite ways of approaching the Center is to either walk the Riverwalk or arrive by Water... More

The sales staff & manager are unprofessional & inept. They lied about a show without knowing the details & when we found out they would not accept responsibility. They let us wait 1/2 hr in the blazing sun before the useless supervisor appeared. They should be ashamed of themselves. They have lost snowbirds who have been buying tickets since they... More

Saw the show called "Anything Goes" tonight. My wife and I have probably been to at least a 200 shows in New York, Chicago, and London. We would not recommend this show. This is a comedy show with a very nice one song. Problem is the comedy is at your most basic level like laughing over tripping over your own... More

I had my first visit to the Broward Center to see Kathy Griffin. I had heard the center was state of the art and beautiful, but I was blown away by it! It's modern, flows nicely and feels like a great European opera house with modern touches. Visually it's stunning. We had Club Level tickets that is on the Mezzanine... More

I went to the Broward Centre for the first time last night to see Kathy Griffin. She was hilarious! I was really impressed with the venue. The seating was comfortable and the theatre looked classy and new. The bar area was large and one could enjoy outdoor seating. Access to the parking area was quick and easy following the show.

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.
