“Fun evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

The Opera House has been beautifully restored. We had tickets for an evening performance to see Jeanne Robertson, a comic. Our seats were on the third level so we were looking down at the stage. We could see and hear everything but if you are afraid of heights this is not the place to be. There are a lot of stairs and only one elevator that holds six people so I recommend you get to the theater at least 30 minutes early to avoid a wait if you must ride the elevator up. I thought it was well worth the price of the ticket to see a performance in the Opera House.

“Great shows!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

The shows we have seen at The Grand have always been fun and family-friendly. You can visit their website, www.thegrand.com, for a full schedule. We just saw Jeanne Robertson and she was a real hoot!

“Great Venue for Entertainment in Galveston!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

We have enjoyed numerous performances at the 1894 Opera House. We are seniors and most of the acts there appeal to us. Our top acts have been Neil Sedaka, Oakridge Boys and Sinbad. This venue is great for any type entertainment and you are very close to the action. Not a bad seat in the house!

“Beautiful interior”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Interesting self-guided tour and you could stay as long as you wish, sitting in different areas of the theatre. Beautiful old building.
