Went to see Wendy Williams, never been there before, great place to go. The theater was cool had a sky with stars for the ceiling and had real ushers that were helping people find seats and when the lights went low the used flashlights. The parking was very convenient. I will be back again.

At Hobby Center this Saturday evening. Yes it's entrance for parking is under construction but it is handled very well. Follow signage for valet parking and staff will direct you safely and securely in and most importantly out at the late hour. Save those souvenir cups if your a returning patron for drinks to take inside the hall.

The Hobby Center is in a very convenient location in downtown Houston, especially when exiting off I-10 as you are traveling easterly. The façade of the building is very modern and trendy. I understand parking can be difficult, but we did not face that issue as we stayed at the nearby Lancaster Hotel which provided complimentary transportation for my wife... More

My wife and I went to the Hobby Center in Houston, Texas to see the Motown Musical and had a fantastic time. The location as well as parking, seating, and comfortability was excellent.

We saw a touring production of Cinderella during our visit- the show was great, and the venue was very beautiful and comfortable.

Great acoustics for plays or concerts. One of the perks is if you own a LEXUS automobile, then Valet parking is free.

The Hobby Center does many wonderful productions during the course of the year (we just saw Newsies). The acting was superb and the set was unbelievable. The only drawback is the parking. Allow for plenty of time to find a space as the closer parking lots fill up quickly. When leaving, expect to stand in line again just to get... More

I watched Dirty Dancing here and it was a really good production. The seats weren't bad and its a great theatre. Even if we sat higher up, we were able to see the stage well. The atmosphere was wonderful and really drew you in to the performing arts world.

We have been subscribers for a couple of years and we are always impressed by the quality of the performance, setting and staff. Convenient parking in the underground Tranquility Park with direct access. Downtown Houston offers a wide variety of dining before and after the show.

A lot of thought and planning went into this "new" performance place. Originally designed and built for Houston's premiere musical theater company Theater Under The Stars. Now it serves Broadway Across America, and small plays that aren't musicals. If there's a show in town and you think you're interested, go ahead and go. There's a first rate restaurant in the...
