We went to see the Rockettes - opening night - at the Hobby center. It was a great performance and a really great venue. The center is layed out in such a way that after the perfromance, we were able to enjoy the ambiance of the crowd and decor from the upper levels....and then again in the lower. Great treat... More

I have seen 10+ musicals at the Hobby Center and it is great to see musicals here! My favorite musicals have been Wicked, Jersey Boys and Book of Mormon. The views are good even from the balcony. Sitting up close is nice as well. The prices compared to other cities are very reasonable. Highly recommend going here!

I took my mother to see the radio city rockettes. The facility was great. Every seat had a grand view of the performance.

This review is for the (Radio City Music Hall “Rockettes” Christmas Spectacular) in the Hobby Theater ~ Dec 2014. The Hobby parking garage filled up fast and was full 45 minutes prior to the show starting. This is the norm for Hobby Theater and other shows I have been to. I did noticed the Hobby was still accepting valet parking... More

We saw the Radio City Christmas Spectacular for the second time - first at Radio City a couple of years ago. It was a great show as expected, but since this about the venue, I will stick to it. Because it is a modern theatre, they incorporated all of the nice to haves not found in most theatres. The restrooms... More

We saw the noon matinee and it was fantastic. We arrived 35 minutes early and found ample parking in the garage for 10.00. They do have valet if you have people unable to walk very far. We had seats on row A of center mezzanine and loved it. However, there were about 15 steps going down to row A which... More

We saw The Rockettes, here and it was awesome! We loved it. Doesn't look like there is a bad seat in the house. Love the set up here.

We see shows at the Hobby Center multiple times a year and it is an excellent theatre and shows Houston can compete with New York. Parking is easy - it's $10 self park behind the enter and or $20 to valet. Self park as the valet takes time after the show. The theatre itself is beautiful and not small nor... More

We attended the Radio City show and sat in Row L Seats 11 and 12. These are very close to our season tickets in row M seats 5 & 6. The Hobby Center is a very good show venue. The onsite $10 parking garage is easily accessed from I45 via Rusk. It has 800 spaces and we have never had... More

I recently saw the touring Radio City Music Hall Christmas Spectacular here, We were seated in the Center Mezzanine and the seats had a good view of the stage for most of the scenes, although for some of the scenes the angle/perspective would have been better from the Orchestra section. Sound was not an issue (microphones). A couple of things... More
