COME EARLY, RELAX AND ENJOY
We recommend planning your travel so that you arrive at the Broward Center no later than 45-60 minutes before show time. You should then budget about 15 minutes to park walk to the theater, and clear security.
Arriving early also give you time to relax and enjoy the pre-theater experience. Mingle with friends, enjoy food and drink specials up to 60 minutes prior to the show and settle in. Seating areas open 30 minutes prior to show time.
Most shows require that our ushers hold late arrivals in the lobby until a suitable pause in the program. The timing of allowing late arrivals into the seating area is determined by the show and designed to cause as little disruption as possible.
THERE IS NO DRESS CODE
While going to the Broward Center is certainly a special occasion, there is no required dress code. Some guests enjoy dressing up and making a special night of it, and you can too, but most of all we want our guests to be comfortable.
We would ask you to politely consider other guests’ possible allergic reactions when applying fragrances like perfumes or colognes, as the Broward Center is a closed area with many people in close proximity to each other.
