“Get some culture in Miami”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

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 than that, I truly enjoy performances there. The live music is wonderful as well as the singers, dancers, costumes and scenery.

You can park in their theater parking $15 or valet park for $20-25. I park in one of the parking lots nearby for $8-10, depending on the performance; there is also meter parking.

Beverages and food are sold before the show and during intermission; there are not cheap, but most theater food is expensive. All in all, its a great venue for perfomances.

“Loved every show from beginning to end”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

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 , you feel privileged! You lift your head to the ceiling and stay in awe. It is beautifully done and the work flow is well organized. the ushers do their job really well, welcome you, walk you to your seats, and the magic begins!
No matter where you sit, each time I attend a show I feel transported to another dimension for 3 hours. I recommend you take your children , family and friends. They also have free activities in the plaza or free concert as well. Miami has finally a renowned cultural place! So go.

“The donkey show”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

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

“Lion King”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

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 chills, tears and smiles throughout this entire show. LOVED IT.
