Miller Outdoor always has great performances. So far, we saw the ballet perform Giselle and the symphony Gershwin. Both were wonderful. Its a great place to take a picnic and see a good, free performance. They also frequently have a food truck in addition to the concession stand which is a big improvement. The bathrooms are usually clean and there... More

I went to see "Hairspray" the musical with a friend. It was my first performance this season, such a wonderful venue to see a variety of art performances. I always sit in the theater and it is easy to get free assigned tickets the day of the performance. A wonderful benefit to have access to free cultural and art shows... More

Went with my niece and her 3 children ages 4-12 and saw the Magic Flute. It was designed for all ages . It was a good introduction to opera for those who haven't been. Subtitles shown on screen. We had covered seating which you can request in advance it is also free. I'm not for the grassy seating . Most... More

We went to see the Houston Ballet Company perform Giselle. Luckily the weather turned out to be a nice night. The assigned seating is nice, it is free and all you have to do in show up during lunch time and pick up your tickets. If you don't get tickets they open up the seating 5 minutes before the show...

Everyone has an opportunity to get great seats for great events, and the facilities are modern. The parking kinda sucks, but I guess you get what you pay for.

I really like this outdoor theater. I have gone about 5-10 times in my life and I have always enjoyed it. Bring a blanket and cold drinks.

Miller Outdoor Theatre is a wonder. I've been to many events here and it is picture perfect, especially on a nice evening. The schedule of shows can be found on their website. Tickets are only sold for the covered seats, but the best (and free!) way to enjoy Miller Theatre is to bring blankets or fold out chairs and sit... More

Every Friday & Saturday during the summer, The Miller Outdoor Theatre has Shakespear plays, rock tributes, operas, ballets - you name it. Quality entertainment for free. If you go to the box office on the day of the performance, you can pick up to 4 tickets for that day's performance. Otherwise, they release the seats 5 minutes before the show... More

we recently went to see Bella gaia .It was a great event even though we were caught in a horrendous storm. It is tough to stay dry if the wind is whipping around even with the covering. However the Miller Theater has numerous great events and is a hallmark in houston
