Located near Las Olas Blvd., so after the show there is plenty to do. The Au Renne theater was modern and very comfortable. Be careful if you have seats high up, a lot of stair to navigate.

The venue is beautiful and state of the art, its a great location, great facilities, professional staff, comfortable, and easy parking. We attend 6 or 7 shows per year at the Kravis Center or the Adrienne Arsht Center. Right now is a holiday favorite, George Balanchine's "The Nutcracker", staring the Miami City Ballet, its a winter wonderland of dancing snowflakes,... More

Broward Center for the performing arts is one of the best venues South Florida has to offer, nothing short of spectacular. Easy access from any where , plenty of parking, great people, the volunteers are always in good spirits and willing to help, the acoustic is perfect, great view of the stage no matter where you choose to sit.

I see anywhere from 6-12 shows at the Broward Center per year. Ticketing process is quick and efficient, staff is extremely professional, and the drinks are stiff! Great for a date night, girls night, or just a night for a show!

Went to see the 20th anniversary of Rent, very talented cast. The center has great seats and sound system. The only drawback is the restrooms, both men's and women's. Definitely too small for its size.

We saw Rent over the weekend. Great musical, made better by the awesome theatre. Easy to find. Easy to park. Attendants were very helpful. I didn't have any refreshments but they looked amazing. I saw people with flavored popcorn and champagne!! This is a definitely a place I will visit again!

Just there last night for an intimate radio play evening at the Abdo Theater - great performance, intimate environment, friendly staff. Other theaters there hold many hundreds and several thousand for major concerts, Broadway shows and world class performers. Parking is a premium issue and if you don't want to Valet you may need to walk a block or two.... More

This is our second visit to the wonderful venue. Saw "Newsies" last year and the Symphony of the Americas yesterday. The parking is very handy although a bit pricey. The staff (volunteer ushers) are so pleasant and pleased that you are there. Acoustics are excellent! Do yourself a favor and arrive early for a performance and walk down to the... More
