HOUSTON THEATER - HOUSTON THEATERS TEXAS TX

Houston TheaterHouston Theater - The Theater District in downtown Houston is a world class entertainment destination with over 2 million people visiting annually. The 17 block area is home to eight professional perfoming arts organizations and five beautiful theaters. The Wortham Theater Center has two theaters with elaborate lobbies and ample space for the performers and supporting personnel. The 2,367 seat Alice and George Brown Theater is home to the Houston Ballet, the Houston Grand Opera and Theater Under the Stars. Its sister theater, the Lillie and Roy Cullen seats 1100,offers enough space for smaller productions of the ballet and opera. The Alley Theater is just down the street from the Wortham and has a castle like appearance with its nine towers and open air terraces. The inside is just as elegant with a grand spiral staircase. The Alley has two stages,the Large, which seats 824 and the Neuhaus Arena, which can accomodate 296 patrons.

Jones Hall is a spectacular place to go with 60 foot ceilings, teakwood and marble accents and crimson colored carpet to lead you to your seats. The height of the ceiling is not the only magnificent thing about it. It can actually move so the theater can shrink down to 1800 seats, or expand for larger gatherings to 3,00o seats. It is home to the Houston Symphony, Society for the Performing Arts, and the Houston Broadway Series. Around the corner from Jones Hall is the Hobby Center for the Performing Arts. Opened in May of 2002, Theater Under the Stars and the Houston Broadway Series perform here. Within the Hobby Center is Sarofim Hall, a delightfully ornate 2650 seater and the Zilkha Hall, smaller with only 500 seats, but it has a full orchestra pit. The Verizon Wireless Theater has concerts year long of many types. From classical and jazz to pop/rock, it is always alive with music. All of the theaters offer parking in monitored garages that are often attached or directly across the street. The Hobby Center has on site parking and valet service. Parking rates will vary, so check with the theater before you go to see a show.

With all of these great Theaters in Houston and internationally acclaimed companies to perform the shows, catching a matinee or spending an evening in the Houston Theater District is surely a treat.
