For consistently flawless performances this troupe and theatre takes the prize for us. A season ticket is a must for anyone who enjoys live performances of great plays.

We have seen many plays at the Alley. Everyone has been outstanding ... the acting is very professional, the sets are outstanding as is the lighting and sound. The theater is small enough that you cannot find a bad seat.

Have gone to three shows here and have enjoyed all of them. The productions are very high quality and because the stages are small every seat is good. If you are a student this is an especially good deal.

As most reviewers have noted this is a great little theatre producing quality productions in the theatre district in downtown Houston. Attended an Agatha Cristie production of 'Hollow' and it was thoroughly enjoyable. Steep seating means that the view is very good from most locations but I would avoid the front 2 or 3 rows and the seats on the extreme sides. It is always a pleasure to have a night out at the theatre and this one does not disappoint.

Just attended "Sherlock Holmes and the adventures is the Suicide Club". Excellent cast, comfortable seats. I can't wait for the 2013-14 season. More great shows coming up!
