Latest Event Updates

UPDATED March 21, 2020 at 8:45 AM

With the best interests of the South Florida community in mind, all public performances at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts and Parker Playhouse will be postponed or cancelled through April 16, 2020. This decision was based on the mandate from our local officials on March 13, 2020 to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

"The well being of our guests, artists, staff and volunteers is of paramount importance," said Kelley Shanley, Broward Center President & CEO. "Our mission is to serve the community through engagement in the arts, and in these challenging times, our community will be best served by postponing our performances. We appreciate the continued leadership of our public officials and we remain prepared to respond to evolving circumstances."

Please keep your original tickets. All previously purchased tickets will be honored on the new performance dateYou always have the option for a refund when the new date is announced. With very few exceptions, most performances are postponed, not cancelled. We are working diligently with presenting partners and artist management to reschedule performances that were originally scheduled through April 16, 2020. Please give us the next few weeks to announce new dates before requesting a refund.
