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.

My gf and I watched Wicked and we absolutely loved it. Then, I purchased tickets (for her birthday) for HAIR, but unfortunately, we missed the show due to wrong scheduling on our part. We called and pleaded with the staff (as well as the manager) to work out something for us. Instead of helping us, all they could do was avoid all responsibilities. They claim that they are just a venue and are not profitting from the show, which is purely untruthful.
To make the matter worse, they were rude and blamed us for missing the show. First, they should never have blamed the customer even if the customer is wrong (esp. since we admitted to our fault). Second, I am sure they could have worked with us if they are really willing. Needless to say, my gf and I will never go to another show at that place. Unless you are perfect and have never been late in your life for whatever the reason may be, you can expect to lose your money and feel a big disappointment like us. I abhor writing reviews since most people do not report the truth (do not report their fault) and only one side of the story, and I would hate for my comment to be buried among them.
