The theatre is maintained very well. Wonderful to have shows stop in on tour here. There are two theatres. a larger one for more of the bigger broadway block busters that visit; and slightly smaller for more of the local venus that may play or those that are not as well known yet.

Not long after I first met my husband, we went to see Jersey Boys at the Broward arts Center. It was a special and romantic evening. There's really nothing like going to the theater.

This was our second visit to this venue and once again we found it to be a really nice experience, except for how parking is handling in the public garage. They only take cash and do not put much enthusiasm into their work. This however is not a reflection on the venue itself which is beautiful, accommodating and comfortable.

Beautiful theatre with plenty of legroom. Ballet and theatre is worthy of Lincoln Center in NYC. Quality of ballet and theatre is outstanding. Amenities and special seating and before and after theatre food and drink are lovely. A great place for Floridians and New Yorkers!

I've never had a bad experience at this small city arts center. I've sat in every part of the complex and can only say nice things about it.

Love going to the Broward Center for the Performing Arts and enjoying top notch shows. We go to a few shows a year and are looking forward to Annie coming up this fall. Prefer seating in lower orchestra area for best views.

The Broward Center is a top notch theatre venue. It hosts a wide variety of shows from musicals to modern dance and classical ballet, to comedians to touring Broadway shows. I have seen many performances here and have never been disappointed. The venue itself is beautiful and very classy. There is the choice of valet parking or a nearby garage.... More
