“My Favorite Place in Houston”
Reviewed January 16, 2013 via mobile

This place is one of my favorites in town!!
The free events during the summertime keep getting better each year!
Since seating is on a hill, you get great views of the event from every angle.
It is very romantic, usually we plan picnics with my boyfriend. You could bring your blanket, wine, cheese, fruits and enjoy!
It is a great spot as well for fellowship with friends and family. Kids and dogs everywhere. :)
Lovely memories in this place!

“The Best Things in Houston are Free”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

Every summer, dozens of local arts and culture organizations vie for time on the MIller Outdoor stage. In the free seats or on the hilltop, you can enjoy Shakespeare, Musicals, Dance events, film screenings, programs for children, festivals and so much more. A romantic picnic, a place where the kids can play, an outing with friends, Miller welcomes all kinds of special moments with open arms and no entrance fee. When you visit Houston, check out the schedule, it varies, and try to catch an event. Free seating under a roof is available in advance, but usually it's not full, and you can get a seat right before the show. The hill has two sections: chair or no chair. You can bring any food you want, coolers, etc., or buy franks and chips and cokes, etc., on site. Just relax and have fun!

“Great Outdoor Space”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

This is a great place for the whole family to enjoy a free evening. The action is hard to see from the grass sometimes, but if you know the story, it is still enjoyable It's nice to see so many take advantage of a venue like this.

“A Gem in the Park”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

All Houstonians should plan on attending an event at Miller Outdoor Theater at least once. The pleasure of the experience is very nearly related to the weather of the evening you are attending. There are seats under a roofed area that do suggest the presence of air conditioning but the best experience is in the open air on the hill looking over the theater. Bring a blanket, something to eat and drink and let the kids play on the grassy hill.
