Compare to the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, Kravis is more grand. It also very stuffy and caters to a very old population. I prefer Broward Center, more down to earth but too far for us.

We attended the Miami City Ballet's Nutcracker in December and were pleased overall with the experience. Parking was ample, adjacent to the theater and free. They also provide valet parking. The premises are elegant and the seating offers good views from everywhere. The only complaint we have concerns the concession services. The lines were prohibitively long, they were sold out...

Wonderful theater with great sight lines and good acoustics for such a large hall. The only problem is leaving. Long lines form for valet parking, and exit from the parking garage can take 15-20 minutes.

Kravis Center for the Performing Arts is state of the art. It is a beautiful facility that offers a varied choice of performances during the year. There is something for everyone and its a lovely experience. My only complaint with ticketing is that its user-friendly online site never seems to give the run time for performances!

I love this theater. It has a magnificent lobby that it 3 stories tall. Great sound system. My only complaint is the space between the rows is very tight.

The theater is beautiful and everyone that works there was incredibly helpful and nice. The seats are very small and crammed. Which is unfortunate because I purchased a package that included 6 or 7 shows.

If there's something playing at the Kravis and you can get good tickets - GO! This venue has grown over the years. It is truly a first-class experience no matter what you see.

I've been coming to the kravis since it was built, and now it's expanded and still lovely and well maintained Parking tip:: If your parking in the parking garage the 3rd floor is actually the level of the main entrance and you won't have to take the stairs or elevator

The Center was directly across from our hotel.. Parking was free and access to the facility and meeting space was great. The conference room layout was very conducive to our meeting.
