The most recent visit by my wife and myself was last night. Riverdance performed. It was great. We loved it. Many people in the audience wore covid masks. Parking was a problem. We parked at a garage across the street, where it cost us $15 to park our car.

Harry Connick. Jr was amazing, and the only reason I’m giving this venue a 4 instead of a 5 was that exiting the venue was very difficult, long lines waiting inside on the catwalk to the parking garage. It appeared as if it needed more exits. Getting out of the parking lot was also very long. We were not in a rush, so we were not overly concerned, however in comparison to other venues we’ve visited, this by far seemed lengthy. Staff were very friendly and made sure everyone was wearing masks correctly. You were not able to enter without a mask properly worn. The inside was beautiful, we had seats in the balcony, and sound probably would be better below. Lastly, the seats were snug, and we are only 5’7 and 5’9, can’t imagine anyone 6’ or taller with long legs -be comfortable. Maybe as you move up in price the seats have more room like airplanes????

We have been season ticketholders for the Broadway series forever. Fortunately, we have tickets in Row J, sometimes 6 or 8 rows from the stage depending on the performance.

Very good sound system and comfortable seats.

Located in downtown Ft Lauderdale with its own parking garage. Tons of very good restaurants nearby.

"To Kill a Mockingbird" could easily have been the best performance I have seen in my life. The actors were all AMAZING full of passion and no one missed a beat. We were lucky enough to be sitting in the front row and could see their tears and their angst. I have loved this story forever, but this interpretation beats the book and beats the movie hands down. Richard Thomas just killed it. His energy and his ability to transform was most impressive . I'd say John Boy still has it, and still gives it his all! Thank you to the cast and thank you to Broward Center for bringing this gift to us.

Being subscribers for years, we were thrilled to return to see Broadway plays at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts. They have an excellent protocol for all attendees.

The venue is great with a very sound system and comfortable seats.

Wonderful new design of the "classic" Opera House. Excellent seating, sight lines and stage. Adjacent parking lot is conveient but pricey for area ($15 per performance). Operas are not amplified and only very strong voices are clearly heard. Frequently the orchestra is drowning out the singers. Fix would be easy.

The theater is beautiful and well located. The problem was the management’s decision to keep the air temperature extremely cold. We had front row seats and were freezing cold even with sweaters and a sweatshirt. People around us were cold and even the ushers were saying they were cold. Unfortunately, we preferred to leave at intermission instead of continuing to shiver. We have seen a lot of Broadway. This is the coldest we have ever been in any theater ever. The management could save a fortunate on air conditioning instead of selling pins to raise money.

"Great Venue"

Went to see a musical at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts. Very good sound system and seats. We have been season subscribers for years.

The only negative is the rest rooms, too small for the size of the theater.

There is a wonderful store that does framing as well as sells art by the name of Naked Walls. It is run by Barry Cohen, whose expertise in framing and helpfulness goes unsurpassed. The store itself is like an art gallery, thus it's name 'Naked Wall'. I brought in 5 museum prints from NYC and had them all framed here. I highly recommend. They are located in the Publix shopping center at 7431-57 West Atlantic Avenue.

What a wonderful concert with Ambrosia, John Ford Coley, Peter from Player, and the last performer slips my mind, but it was an awesome concert. Hearing the songs that I've listened to for many years, and being in such an awesome Performing Arts building. The Performing Arts Center was a fabulous place and the music sounded great! It was a pleasure to be able to see these bands perform in person. I wouldn't have missed it for anything! What a great night!
