Our facilities feature ADA-approved signage, handrails and automatic door openers.

A second entry is located at the bottom of the driveway entrance, immediately across from the Arts & Entertainment Parking Garage.

Patrons with limited mobility may be dropped off in front of the Au-Rene and Amaturo Theaters via the front driveway.

Open Captioned (OC) Performances

Arlene Romoff, president of the Hearing Loss Association of New Jersey, and author of two books explains, “Open captioned performances are a wonderful opportunity to experience the joys of live theatre without missing a word. It has allowed me and others with hearing loss to attend the wonderful productions at the Broward Center with dignity.”

Charlotte Roth, a long time advocate for people with hearing loss believes that Broward Center offers miracles: “Open captioned live theater brings all the magic of Broadway to me and to others who have a hearing loss. Come and be part of the miracle. How sweet it is!”
