I attended a movie premiere at the Zach for an independent movie. The theater had great acoustics and comfortable seats. The building design however was really unattractive. The catering spaces in the entry were were comfortable and efficient. However at one point the heat from all the windows with no screening made the room an inferno.

My wife and I have season tickets and we love each production. This is truly a class act! We always have our favorite shows, but each one is special in their own way. Nice evening out.

Go see this fun play. One of a package of plays we bought and were not expecting much. Well to our delight and surprise this was a really good performance. If you have a few gray hairs it is even better. Kind of strikes close to home when you think about what they are portraying. As usual Zach's is well... More

Local theatre which produces a variety of entertaining and sometimes provocative plays. The new Topfer Theatre is an asset to the two original stages.

This is a great venue, there really is not a bad seat in the house. I have seen several great performances here! Drinks are a little pricey, but what else would you expect.

Reliably good community/equity productions -- especially the musicals under the direction of Dave Steakley. The new stage is terrific. Check it out. Parking can be an issue, so give yourself some extra time. Standards, but plenty of edgy new scripts.

Great place to expose the kids to something not happening on a screen. Staff and actors are awesome, facility is clean and inviting.

Had the pleasure of attending a DSACT benefit there...I had never been before...it was modern, lovely, well laid out and the temperature was perfect. This is important in Texas, as if it is hot out we tend to over or under chill you and if it is cold, well..we may fry you a bit....

We saw Les Mis and A Christmas Story and we were so impressed with the level of professionalism and the quality of the acting and sets -- quite a theatre! And what a view - if you stay afterwards you will be able to have a drink with the actors and check out the view of downtown from the upstairs... More
