The Miller Outdoor Theater offers so many cultural options to see & experience. Performance change every year. Best part is it's free! Bring your dinner, drinks, a game and have a picnic on the lawn with friends and family. Both before and during the show. Great date local.

Every time I attend a show here it's so enjoyable that I vow to go more often! The entertainment runs the gamut from rock to Shakespeare and everything in between and it's always FREE!

A great place to watch a movie, a play, or a symphony... there is always something showing at the theatre. If you want to sit in theatre type chairs you sometimes have to pay a small fee... otherwise there are areas for picnic blankets, or chairs that you can bring yourself. You can bring food, your dog, your kids, beer,... More

What an amazing place and how lucky houston is to have this gem. The planners that built this facility were so far ahead of their time with an amazing almost timeless facility.

Absolute gem- the hill, the sunset, the atmosphere. Having worked backstage with the a number of shows, the technical crew is just amazing - very knowledgeable and helpful

Nowhere else in this country. Jefferson Starship, Ballet Folklorico, Shakespeare, Nutcracker, Swan Lake, Japanese Drums, Chinese dance modern and classical, ABBA, Annie Get Your Gun Live, Etc. Etc. Come at noon to get free tickets or sit on the hill also for free. Come early to park (pain). But FREE!

Got really lucky with the weather. Nice breeze sitting in our seats. We took in wine and snacks (no glass bottles!). Acoustics were very good. Audience was very good also. Lovely Houston Symphony performances. Eight months out of the year we can enjoy this! THIS is why we live in Houston!

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
