This place is a great place to go any day...well, not if its raining. They are always having something going on from all sorts of genres. There are concession stands with snacks and the prices are reasonable for everything. You can either show up the morning of to grab tickets to sit under the pavilion, or just arrive an hour... More

Between here and Discovery Green you'll always find something for the family. If you're just out and about, you could stop by and there will be something going on here, if not you can run on the hill and watch people exercise. It's one of the highlights of Houston.

This place is great for a date night, or a chill night with friends. Make sure you bring a blanket to sit on, and plenty of booze if that's your thing. There is also a vendor open selling food which helps support the theater. I would take some snacks just in case you don't see anything you like. Parking is... More

Great seating. Excellent performance. The only drawback was the wind dying down and the fans didn't help.

Pack up a picnic basket and relax with family or friends on the grassy hill, watch a top notch performance or listen to a wonderful musical. All for free. We have gone for close to a dozen times over the years and have never encounter any problem. Absolutely love it.

Check the schedule, ride the train, bring a basket of goodies, a bottle or 2 of wine and find a spot to watch a good show. This is Houston at its finest.

If you really must, you can get tickets for the reserved seating under the Amphitheatre; but I prefer to take a blanket and sit on the grassy hill with a picnic basket. It is open seating on the hill, first come first served and your dog on a leash is welcome as long as they are sociable and you pick... More

We often go after work on a Friday or during the week. This time we went Saturday evening to watch "Best little W***house in Texas" As usual we sat on the hill and ate a picnic and had a lovely evening. There are never any mosquitoes (how do they do that?). If you haven't tried it I recommend that you... More

We love Miller Outdoor Theater! We have seen 70s shows, plays, Motown great, Elvis impersonations, Latino explosions, and other festivals here. We like to sit on the grass and take it all in. We have also sat in the ticketed area, which is nice too. Great place to go to be outside, having fun, and relaxing with everyone else.

I was at the Miller Outdoor Theatre today for a performance. Without notice, a guy sitting next to me grabbed me and shoved me out of my seat so that his wife could sit there instead. He didn't even ask me to move beforehand. I told the management and they did absolutely nothing about it. There were multiple witnesses who... More
