Venue FAQs

Wondering if your seats are together when they are not consecutively numbered? Many theaters split their seating into “left”, “right”, and “center” sections, and they often assign odd numbers to one side and even numbers to the other for organizational purposes. For example, seats 1 and 3, or 23 and 25 would be next to each other on one side, while 2 and 4,  34 and 36 would be next to each other on the opposite side of the theater. The middle/center section tends to be a three-digit number, like 100, and is numbered consecutively, 101-102-103-104.

Limited view seats generally have a partial view of the stage due to the viewing angle in the theatre. Obstructed view seats have a partially blocked view of the stage due to objects such as columns, railings, or sound equipment.

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.

We recommend that you arrive at the venue at a minimum of 45-60minutes before the performance to allow plenty of time to park and get seated. Doors will open between 30minutes prior to start of the show and may vary on show-by-show basis.

Please arrive on time out of courtesy for the performers and your fellow audience members. Arriving late may result in seating holds or alternate seating within the theater. Admission or re-admission of latecomers is ultimately subject to the producers’ discretion and guidelines for each individual show.
