Not a bad seat in the house.

Saw Ann there. Loved it! Austin is lucky to have a venue like the Zach Theater. Hope to enjoy other productions there!

My husband and I have season tickets, we have loved most of the choices, As they say You can please everyone all of the time. If in town and you see a show, check it out. The Acting is 100 percent. Seating great, And affordable. Forget London/ NYC unless you want to take out a mortgage... (Have seen many shows... More

I was in Austin on business and persuaded my travel mate to attend "ann" with me - great show ( I had wanted to see it since it was on Broadway) and great theater ! We were in the last row, which was high enough to avoid Texas hair blockage ! The staff was friendly and the crowd was lively!... More

With all the emphasis that Austin, as a city, seems to place on the arts and cultural events, I was very surprised that the Zach is barely larger than an average community theatre. The stadium style seating provides excellent site lines to the stage, but the seats are narrow and lack adequate arm and leg room. The ladie's restrooms are... More

Small family theater, very cozy. The traveling performance was adored by my daughter. The cast stayed after for photo ops!

This is a wonderful theatre to visit. We saw "Ann" this past Saturday and it is a do not miss. There is a wonderful area to sit if you get to the theatre early, and there is a little lounge area with a full bar, assortment of snacks (including cheese flights - highly recommend to share) and a piano player....

OMG! Go see this show! Holland Taylor is amazing - she has brought Ann Richards back to life. For those of us who lived through Ann's greatest political successes, this presentation was funny and heartwarming. I was reminded of what a passionate and strong woman Ann was.

Holland Taylor makes the former governor of Texas come alive. Humor, insight and strong political beliefs come thru in this one person show. The Topfer Theatre is a great venue as it is smallish and intimate and not a bad seat in the house. Very enjoyable night in Austin!

The ZachTheatre in Austin is just the right size to view a musical theatre presentation. Their creative staff wrote a version of Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" that is very entertaining. Their actors' musical performances were outstanding. I counted at least seven numbers that I would put at the top of the performances that I've ever heard. Many talented performers in... More

Treat yourself to a moving experience. Outstanding musicals. Superb casting. Great seating. Friendly atmosphere. Preshow entertainment and concessions. Top notch service. Staff is very accommodating. You won't believe the talent that Austin produces. Children's productions will be enjoyed by all ages. Dress up or down. This is Austin at its best. Get there early to appreciate the setting.
