We came for the Summer Shorts show at the Carnival Studio theater. It's a nice intimate venue. I would recommend coming early, because most of the seats are general admission; couples and groups coming in close to showtime were separated. We also found that by coming early, parking was not a problem. We found a lot across the street from... More

Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts is a very nicely renovated theatre, spacious and if there is a nice play in town (eg. Broadway etc.), I would recommend to go and watch the spectacle at this theatre. The only bad thing about it, it is freezing cold inside ! Does not matter if there is heatwave outside, inside it...

I just want to thank the staff at the box office for being so understanding and patient with us. We had tickets for the show on the 20th that got evacuated and then lost our replacement tickets, and they happily and understandingly replaced our tickets. The performing arts center is beautiful! We really enjoyed it-not a bad view in the... More

We saw the Disney travelling company of The Lion King in this beautiful venue. We dined there pre-theater as well and had a great time!

If you ever come across a show by Dennis Watkins, definitely go see it. Just saw Death and Harry Houdini at the Adrienne Arsht Center and it was superb!!! It has a little bit of everything, magic, dancing and singing. Some of the magic would leave you speechless. Is a parlour-style magic show where you can drink wine or beer... More

Free tours are offered Saturday and Monday at noon, in English and Spanish. They have outstanding performances by Florida Grand opera, Miami City Ballet, The Cleveland Orchestra, Broadway across America,( to name a... More

The Carnival Center for Performing Arts was designed by the same team that designs the cruise ship auditoriums, it is cavernous, incredibly steep and the seats are horribly uncomfortable. The grade is so steep that if you suffer from vertigo, please make sure to buy orchestra seats. As an afterthought, they had to add safety railings to keep patrons from... More
