I've only been there during the day without a concert. However it looks very cozy and clean. I heard that concert tickets are free but you have to pick 'em up in time. So check out the schedule and time for pre-sales. If you could not get a ticket for your lovely show, you go there anyway and pick a... More

Miller Outdoor Theater is a true Houston gem, with a calendar of events that brings the best performing arts shows (local, national and international) to the public for free. There is a covered seating area for which you can pick up tickets earlier in the day, in case you really want to sit in a chair. But the grassy hill... More

We took my grandson to see Frogz. The price was great (free) and the theater was clean. We will definitely be back for future shows.

If you are ever in the city and looking for something different, but incredibly awesome to do, Miller Outdoor Theater is the place I suggest you go! When my friends come to Houston this is one of the places I like to show off. It is an outdoor theater with a covered pavilion and seating. That is one perk about... More

Miller is always a great time with FREE shows. Fun way to bring a picnic and beverages for a great date or time with friends. My only complaint is the lack of shows as it cools down. I'd prefer to bundle up and head out but I guess not most of Houston does. The best shows are during the super... More

We LOVE this venue and consider it one of the best things about Houston. Free shows including top acts from all over the world including a broadway production, symphony, ballet, Chinese acrobats, Japanese drummers just to name a few. Seats are available - you can pick up free tickets day of performance or get empty seats immediately prior to the... More

Always a good show and always free to the public. Set on the hill and watch a play or listen to a concert.

If you are coming to visit Houston or are a resident of the city, you have to take advantage of attending a show at the MOT. You can pay to have seats, or you can join the masses on the hill with blankets and coolers enjoying a picnic while watching a show- for free! I personally really like the MoTown... More

Miller Theatre is a must if you spend any time in Houston. It is situated in Hermann Park in the Museum District. I have seen everything from Ballet, opera, symphony to great musicals and plays and cultural events. It closes for a few months in the winter, but most weekends something is on for all tastes. Did I mention that... More
