The Adrienne Arsht Center for Performing Arts is a wonderful building with a great stage and excellent acoustics. I have attended operas and ballets there since it opened. The best seats are downstairs and the lower mezzanine. The box seats along the sides are uncomfortable as you have to turn your neck or entire body to see the stage. Othere... More

I was so happy to see this center opens in Miami. It brought a new wave of culture, adventure, knowledge etc.. Every show I went to see was memorable. From broadway show such as Adams family, Lion King to smaller production such as Summer Shorts, Bb King,the free gospel show, and many more. Once you arrived at the center ,... More

Great performance of The Donkey Show. It's an immersive version of Midsummer Night's Dream set in a 1970's disco. It's goofy, silly, sexy fun. It's probably more enjoyable if you know the source material well, but I think you could just go, and dance, and live out your Studio 54 fantasies

I was anxiously awaiting this musical but screwed up by not ordering my tickets early enough. Since I wanted really good seats they cost me a little more, but 7th row mezzanine dead center was soooooo worth it. This production was beyond my expectations. I loved the way the drummers were opposite each other in the first balcony. I had... More

I've been there to a few opera and jazz concerts. The place is beautiful and the staff is very friendly. Also the dinner at Prelude was a quite nice experience. The lamb ossobuco is fantastic!

I've been to this Auditorium a couple of times and regardless of where I sat the view of the stage was excellent! The shows were quality and the seats comfortable.

I love that we have a theater here in Miami however I was disappointed in their enforcement of theater etiquette. We saw the lion King here which was a beautiful show! It was distracting during the show when some one would enter the theater lights from the hall would shine through, or durning the performance ushers leading guests to their... More
