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

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

I did not see a show but I did revisit a fond childhood memory of rolling down the hill at Miller theater. The place is just as special today as it was in 1976 when I saw it for the first time as a young boy. All of Hermann park is impressive but Miller Theater is jewel in the crown.

I was invited by my co-worker to attend an outdoor theater park classical music concert. The location has two sections. The seating section under the modern design pavilion, and the soft meadows that create a natural amphitheater seating arrangement. We brought our lawn chairs and snacks as enjoyed a grand display of various classical music. Afterwards, we when to one... More
