Broward Center for the Performing Arts
The Broward Center for the Performing Arts is an amazing venue which offers South Florida an amazing place to see performance art. There are an impressive amount of shows that run through the performing arts center ranging from plays and musicals to music performances by orchestras, dance troupes, and even other musical performing artists. The origins of this fine performing arts center began with Fort Lauderdale’s War Memorial Auditorium and the Parker Playhouse which were built in the 1940’s and 1950’s respectively. These venues served their purpose in their time, but with the growing need for more advanced features and a growing performing arts culture there needed to be a venue available which met the community’s needs. Compared to the older venues, which have not gone away but have become affiliates of the new center, the Broward Center for the Performing Arts has many more seats ready to accommodate the public, larger backstage and meeting areas, and more than one stage for a variety of performance needs. The Broward Center for the Performing Arts is also a part of the Points of Culture and Points of Culture Abroad which serves as a catalyst in the broadening of Brazilian culture around the world. This affiliation with the Points of Culture allows the center to have a great connection with performing arts companies which perform amazing dance shows, music related performances, and more in the Brazilian fashion. These amazing performances are only part of what the center offers. They help show just how diverse the center really is, and strives to be even more diverse while providing many more shows of different varieties. Spend an evening entertained by some amazing performers from all walks of life and many diverse cultures at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts and get immersed in the experience.
