I recently saw Aida here. I cannot express how amazing the performance once. I was in a small intimate theater (I heard they have other theaters in the building that may be bigger). which enhanced the performance. The theater seems to have great Broadway shows all year long so those that go will probably see a a popular titles. Being... More

My wife and I just made the trip from Miami Beach to Fort Lauderdale to see Neil Sedaka in concert. The venue was extraordinary with comfortable seating and great sight lines for each patron. The acoustics in the building are superb and the design and appointments are certainly upscale. There is a sandwich counter inside that was unknown to us... More

Upon arriving at the valet entrance driveway, it was closed due to a "special event". I do valet due to my partner's inability to walk far. Luckily the security detail let me drop off my partner. My complaint is that there was no notice of this special event as I would have arrived earlier. The show started at 7:30pm and... More

Any event at the Broward Center, check if Lyn Farmer is giving a pre-event wine taste and lecture. Wonderful hour, always delightful, and remarkably informative. Don't miss it.

Great experience at BCPA, if I go there again I'll make sure I spend a few extra bucks and get a better seat. Parking available, safe location. Flew in from out of town to see a favorite artist, it's centrally located to interstate and downtown, comfortable seats.

The main theatre is excellent for shows and major concerts. The acoustics are terrific. Parking is $12 - a ripoff. There are several pubs a couple of blocks away. The Amaturo Theater is great for smaller performances with equally fine acoustics. Very helpful staff.

Went to see Disney's The Little Mermaid. Found reasonable parking right across the street. Lovely entrance-way with lit up trees and walkway. Great customer service, drinks and snacks were available in the lobby before the show. Restrooms were a little too far from our seats, but very clean. Orchestra seats provided a great view but I do wish rows were... More
