“Great Night Out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

My wife always enjoy making the trip downtown to have dinner and see a show. Make reservations at Artista for dinner and go early. Have a nice dinner inside Hobby Center then go in and enjoy a show. It is a great date night.

“Broadway in Houston!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

The Hobby Center has 2 excellent theaters and regularly hosts musicals before their Broadway tenure. It is a new theater, with great acoustics, comfortable seating, and a variety of food/drink options for those who arrive early.

“The Jersey Boys was terrific”

The story of the 4 seasons was told in this Broadway series. Excellent seats and great place except for the bathroom lines at intermission.
