Fodor's Review

After a $40 million remodel and expansion in 2014, Fort Lauderdale's 2,700-seat architectural gem is better than ever. More than 500 events unfold annually here, including Broadway-style musicals, plays, dance, symphony, opera, rock, film, lectures, comedy, and children's theater. As part of the renovation, the theaters were brought up to the highest technological standards and new dining and entertainment areas were added, including the restaurant Marti's New River Bistro. An enclosed elevated walkway links the centerpiece of Fort Lauderdale's arts district to a parking garage across the street.
