Great theatre with big talent!

I have been going to the Alley for about 25 years. Their acting company is first rate and never a disappointment with a play.

The Alley Theater is doing a delightful presentation of The Foreigner at their temporary University of Houston location. Playing through Aug 9 it is a must see! Took out- of- town guests and we all thought it was such fun! The Houston company is a marvelous group of actors with great versatility and timing. Some adult content so I would... More

We've been season subscribers to the Alley Theatre for at least 20 years. Widely variable repertoire from Williams to Shakespeare to Foote. I love seeing the same actors in the company doing different roles and different genres. My wife says they're like chameleons...changing from role to role, play to play. Excellent acting, clever props, superb directing and unreal sets. As... More

We were visiting Houston and went to view this company of actors perform "The Foreigner". The set was pleasing and the acting was fairly good for this type of theater. We'd attend again.

The last performance of The Alley at UH for the season is The Foreigner. It has many of the regular cast and each one does an outstanding job. This is a great show to take out of town guests to or just to enjoy an evening with your spouse. It is extremely funny and very well done. Don't miss it!

Houston's premiere theatre always makes for an entertaining evening out. While I have thoroughly enjoyed the more intimate setting of the theatre at UH, I am ready for the big reveal of the refurbished downtown home later this fall. Excellent theater that intrigues, compels, and entertains.

There is hardly ever a bad experience here. Season tickets are a must for any serious theatre goer. the stable of players is the best this side of Broadway.

"As You Like It" is hard to mess up. It has a plot and script that has endured for centuries. Well, the Alley continues to be inconsistent yet again. The show was updated in an anachronistic fashion that had the audience wondering what century was the setting for the play. Certainly not Shakespearean times and certainly not modern day. The...

My husband and I have attended Alley productions off & on over the years, but decided to become season subscription holders 2 or 3 years ago. We have not been disappointed in any production! Drama, comedy, mystery -- all well done. I especially appreciate the ones that make you think and prompt discussion afterwards. My only complaint was that the... More

The Alley is currently being refurbished. Plays are now being performed at the University of Houston. The acting is always top notch. The theater is well supported by the citizens of Houston.
