We have been to the Wortham many times for the ballet and special events. The kids loved the escalator entrance with the fanciful guards, the food we could order nefore the show, and the artists.

Great place to see The Nutcracker each year. First rate interior and acoustics. Parking nearby and you can usually find reasonably priced tickets if you look around.

There is a complex of theaters in wortham. We saw Branford Marsalis in the more intimate Cullen. Wonderful facility with a great artistic director. Tickets were reasonably priced. Parking is a bit tricky or expensive. Sound quality was excellent. There was a lot going on the night my girlfriend and I went. The opera was happening in the neighboring theater.... More

From the outside of this building, although it covers a city block, doesn't give the passersby an appreciation for what is inside. When you walk in the grand entrance you'll be instantly hoisted up an escalator leaving the bustling street behind. Even though all modern ticket taking amenities are used here you will think you've traveled in time to a... More

My first visit to the Wortham Center will not be my last!!! What a beautiful venue. I attended an event in the small auditorium and didn't realize until later that there were twice as many people in the large auditorium. The ushers were friendly and well organized. The bathrooms were clean and plentiful. GREAT JOB to all who made the... More

The Wortham Center was massive looking from the outside. We went to see the Nutcracker. There were events in both theatres that night and the employees seemed to be very organized. We had no problems in getting to the correct theatre and finding our seats. Very enjoyable.

Wow! The Houston ballet preformed for one NITE at the Jubilee last week and it was fabulous. How difficult is it to dance one performance one NITE! Words cannot describe how talented the HB IS. We were asked for dinner with the dancers on stage after the ballet and what a treat. Lucky Houston JAW

We have gone to the Wortham to see the ballet for 9 years now. We love it!. The tree at Christmas time is amazing!!! The food is expensive, like $3 for a regular size bottle of water but good. Service is outstanding. Everyone is very helpful. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because of the seating. If... More

My daughter and I went to see the Houston Ballet perform Shakespeare's comedy, A Midsummer Night's Dream. The Wortham is always a pleasure because of its acoustics and visibility from every comfortable seat. I love the elegant lobby, the grand escalator, the red carpets everywhere, the helpful ushers and staff, the yummy food and drinks. I especially enjoy the easy... More
