It is an event, even in these replay-on-demand times, to take in a live performance. We put on the right look, we put on our finest, we might even put on the Ritz. We make a night of it, with a little dinner before the show, a few drinks after.

The annual preview of South Florida's cultural arts season is your guide to a night on the town, the performances as well as the destinations. Through videos, photos, maps and our experts' recommendations, we offer a tour to South Florida's arts districts.

Our staff critics have also identified the events they are anticipating the most. From theater, to dance, to art and music, there is plenty to keep your calendar full.
