We attended an 80's concert here this past weekend. It was a great facility. Our concert was supposed to be at another location and was switched to here. Great sitting, friendly staff and good drinks.

Parker Playbouse is old and lovely. There is a lot to be said for the theater, and some detractors that one might expect from a venue of its age. The lobby is filled with murals and statues you can’t help but try to see them...More

I have to say for such an old theater, they have great seats, comfortable, easy to walk through without stepping on toes, can see the stage from all over. They need to upgrade the bathrooms. And very dark parking area, couldn't see where to park.

Only 26 rows so that every seat has a clear view of the stage. Sound system is excellent. Many tickets can be bought off price. The best rockers and singers are here. Part of the broward Center complex. Good restaurants nearby. Parking is a mess...More
