Don't hesitate to purchase tickets on the side areas of this Hubbard theatre at the Alley. We went to see "A Night with Janis Joplin" last night and not only was it an amazing show but the seats were perfect! Comfortable and easy to move around. We purchased our tickets a day or so prior to the show and they... More

Saw a great show. Theater is conducive to smaller intimate performances. A nice feature is that you can pre-order drinks and snacks to have waiting for you at intermission.

The renovation is great. the Alley Theatre is a first class operation that attracts great shows. Normally we attend "Summer Chills" but this year we sent to the Janis Joplin show which was great. I have never been disappointed with any show we have seen (over the past 15 years).

Our second time to see a show at the Alley Theater. Don't recall what the first one was - it was a couple years ago. This one was a tribute to Janus Joplin. Show was excellent. Great vocals and music. It is nice to see the Alley kept alive. It was recently remodeled. It is a great place to see... More

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
