Broward Center presents Backlot Live

Broward Center for the Performing Arts is taking its stage outside.

The performing arts center is launching Backlot Live, a newly converted seated event space at the Lillian S. Wells Backstage Parking Lot, an area usually reserved for the stars and their crews.

For additional safety, seating allows for 6 feet of physical distance, while tickets are available only in pods of two, four or six. Personal chairs, coolers and outside food and beverages are prohibited. Ticket sales benefit the Broward Center’s Road to Recovery Fund to support operations as the Center prepares for the day when the doors reopen, the curtain rises and the lights return to the Broward Center Stages.

Patrons can start enjoying the new space this month as comedian Rob Schneider is the first of several upcoming acts. See more information on the acts below.
