Got a chance to see the renovation of this wonderful theater. Have been going to the Alley for decades. Even better now with a larger stage and improved seating. Saw 'A Night with Janis Joplin' .... do not miss it. Wonderful show if you love 60s and 70s music.

Alley has been remodeled and looks great. Everything is nice, clean, and seats are great, feel like you are on top of the entertainers. Parking is directly across the street and easily accessed.

Had a great time attending a play with family. Nicely renovated and comfortable space. Great to view performance art and not sure there was a bad seat in the house.

We were just in town for a few days and got last minute tickets. We purchased tickets on-line and then picked them up at the box office. Parking was easy for $10 in a garage across Texas Street. There is a tunnel between the garage and the theatre. We reserved fairly high up in the middle section and still felt... More

We recently attended Spider's Web at the Alley Theatre, an ExxonMobile "Summer Chills" mystery by Agatha Christie - which proved to be an excellent, most entertaining (including humorous) performance from start to finish. Things went smoothly. The new theatre is very nice, every seat good. We hadn't been to the theatre for years; wish we still lived in Houston so... More

This was our first experience at the Alley Theatre which was completely renovated last year. Saw Agatha Christie's Spider's Web. Everything from the ensemble's pitch-perfect performance to the direction, comfort of the seats, stage which can be viewed easily from any place in the stadium-seat theater made for a wonderful evening. The responsive audience laughed for three hours. We had... More

Enjoyed our visit taking in the Alley Theatre's performance of Agatha Christie's Spider's Web. Beautiful lobby. Theatre itself appeared to offer good views regardless of your seating choice because of the excellent design. The cast was very good. Supported well by the theatre staff. When you go bring along light jacket or wrap. They keep the place cool - right... More

The entire facility has been renovated awhile back and looks and feels terrific. There really isn't a bad seat in the house but the closer seats are well worth the extra cost. Valet parking is $16, and parking across in the parking lot was $10. There is a tunnel directly to the elevator to bring you to the ticket office.... More

Easy parking. Easy access in/out. They keep it a bit cool, so take a scarf or throw. All seats were good. Nice, new, clean.
