“Often hosts free concerts and events!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

I went to a free Queen cover band concert. The place was pretty packed, but we found a nice spot on the lawn. Parking was ample and free. A lot of people brought drinks and food with them, so just an FYI, you can bring in your own food to some events (of course, check the details for the specific event first). So really, you have nothing to lose by checking out a free performance there. The theater itself was a nice sized ampitheater, and I will definitely visit again if something is going on there that I want to see--regardless if its free or not.

“Summer Free Concerts are the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

Although they have activities and concerts all year round, my favorite time of the year to visit the Miller Outdoor Theatre is during the Summer free concerts and/or plays. Great for the family or for a couple, or just if you are there solo. THey also have great fireworks in New Years and 4th of July (yes, free)

“Shed The Evening Garderobe for Jeans”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

This was my first trip to Houston and what a pleasant surprise when my friends took me to see La Boheme. And Free!! It was extremely well organised, an auditorium, a great big hill divided into the front for those on picnic blankets and the back for those with chairs. We went early to get a great spot on the hill. Extremely disciplined crowd with picnic baskets, children, and dogs!!! A great atmosphere, in great weather. Pleasant!! Indeed such a great idea to make opera accessible for everybody. A great performance by Andrea Carroll as Musetta. The Miller Outdoor theater is definitely on my itinerary on my next USA trip.
