The new theater at Miramar Regional Park is being built on the hopes that it will bring national events and major concerts to the venue. Filling 5,000 seats is a big undertaking.
Mizner Park Amphitheater in Boca Raton is smaller -- 3,400 seats. When it opened in 2002, it had trouble booking events. The non-profit that ran the theater then moved its operations to the City of Boca Raton.
The City of Miramar is running the new theater and trying to fill seats by working with the ticket vendor Live Nation.
