The Broward Center for the Performing Arts is getting a $50 million revamp, including a new 40,000 square foot education center with a studio theater, and a two story waterfront pavilion on the New River with a banquet hall, conference rooms, and a restaurant. The piece de resistance, however, and the plan's most unique feature, is a Club Level, with a soundproof lounge, full bar, food service, and spots to casually watch the show while hobnobbing with other Marie Antoinette types, without having to worry about disturbing anyone. It was inspired, apparently, by skyboxes at sports stadiums, but it sounds just as much like a royal box, certainly a novelty in the ever more democratizing world of the performing arts.
