“Very inconvenient”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

It is very inconvenient to get to all the areas that you want to in order just to catch a performance and the parking is terrible and far away!

“fantastic facility”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

Usually in downtown parking is always expensive and a pain. the Wortham center has made it cheap and easy. The inside of this facility is breath-taking every time i visit. The shows that go on here are world-class. The staff is eager to help. Always come in december for the Nut Cracker!

“Excellent venue for the fine arts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

Over the years, I've had the opportunity to visit the Wortham Center to attend events like the Holiday Choir, the Ballet and the Opera.

The Wortham Center is the perfect venue in Texas for taking in Fine Arts productions.

-The decor is simple yet very elegant.
-The main foyer is beautiful. You really feel like you've left Houston when you walk in here. Just takes you away to another place
-Service is always very good
-Good parking is available and close to the Wortham.
-The theater has excellent acoustics and all the productions I've seen here have been nothing less than exellent.

The only nitpick I have with the Wortham is that everything is very, very expensive. They charge way too much for food and drinks.

“Outstanding Facility”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

We have attended operas and many major cities and the Wortham Center is one of the best! Open waiting area with food, drinks, shopping and really comfy seating. The Escalator is an efficient way to move a lot of people quickly. No waiting for a slow mover. the hall is really good and all seats have good views and sound.

“GEORGEOUS and EXTREMELY TOP SCALE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

When you think of grandeur, the Wortham comes to mind. They even serve dinner before your evening experience. The food was very good but it made the evening a great event, and going to this fabulous theater will give you a feeling of opulence. Get the dinner too.
