Mgr walked around explaining to customers before the ticket office opened, that there are only 500 tix available for Dance Theater of Harlem performance. Did he adjust the theater's policy of 4 tix per person? Nope. Saw an elderly group of 4 waving their 4 tix each. After driving up from San Antonio, standing in line for over an hr...my... More

Miller Outdoor Theatre is a place that I had been wanting to go but could never actually schedule it, I am glad I did. We went for a movie in the park, the atmosphere is so laid back, the park grounds are beautiful, parking is ample. Make sure you take a picnic as the concession stands were not all that... More

Houston can get hot in summer for sure but Miller Outdoor host some pretty cool venues. I attended the summer symphony last month. It was such a nice event. It is a place for everyone, young, old, couples, families, people with pets etc... Great for a stroll or just people watching.

F-R-E-E, FREE! Miller Theatre puts on great events that are free to patrons 100 percent of the time due to generous funding by individuals and companies around the city. All you have to do is show up when tickets are released (or, for highly anticipated events, begin to queue in the hour(s) beforehand) and wait in line to snag some.... More

Miller Outdoor Theater is a staple in Greater Houston hosting many free theatrical events for the entire family. A great night out under the stars with wholesome family entertainment in Hermann Park.

We have attended two free concerts here and enjooed each one. You are allowed to bring your own food and drink Ino glass) and the pavillion is spacious and clean. We will attend concerts here just as often as they have them.

Saw Lionel Richie at the Miller Outdoor Theatre this weekend and it was awesome. Hot, but that's Texas! You couldn't fit another person in the venue and everyone was singing, dancing and having a great time. Very well maintained and the food and drink choices are good....

This is a MUST go to place in Houston. Especially when the weather cools off a bit. I've visited several times & have never been disappointed. The free admission, outdoor BYOB&B(Blanket & picnic Basket) set up makes it great for families, friends getting together & even date nights! You're able to enjoy all areas of the arts: dance, music, drama... More

What a great resource that most people, including myself, don't use enough. We saw Jefferson Starship last week and they were awesome. On the 4th they had a concert and fireworks. On Saturday they had a "Frozen" singalong for those so inclined to think of snowmen in the summer. Most people sit on the lawn which requires no tickets or... More

My boyfriend and I visited the theatre to listen to the Houston Symphony for the 4th of July. It was a bit of a challenge to find parking. We noticed groups gathered at the picnic tables on our way to the mound of the theatre that looked like they were having a wonderful time. Unfortunately, that's where the fun stopped.... More
