We went to "An American in Paris", the tony-winning musical adaptation of the classic film. We love it. Beautiful dancing! Live orchestra! What a treat! The facility is great, however, the parking is not as straight forward as you think. We did okay though . But our friend could not find it. They use Valet parking instead.

Always top notch performances, newest shows plus classics. It is easy to park and the ushers are wonderful. We have been to many shows: "Les Miserable", "Wicked", "The Lion King", "My Fair Lady", "Phantom" and enjoyed them all.

This is a review of the facility and not any one particular performance. The Hobby Center is well situated with very easy access on and of the downtown section of I45. Parking within close walking distance is readily available - typically $12 varying by event. For the more adventurous (or eco-conscious) the green line of the Houston Metro terminates one... More

I have seen several plays here, and I much prefer it to the Alley Theatre, but that is a matter of personal opinion as Alley sometimes has productions that TUTS does not. Very clean, easy to navigate and comfortable seats!

Season holder for years. It's a great deal. Includes free drinks and there is free valet parking for Lexus owners. You do have to wait a little for the valet parking after the show but it is well organized and moves quickly. My children are also big fans. We took the nine year old and six year old grandchildren to... More

Visited many times, easy access, friendly staff, great shows. I'm tall and there's plenty legroom. It's a theatre, what more can I say.

We have been season ticket holders for years. Each season brings outstanding plays for a variety of audiences. Tickets are reasonably priced. This just adds to Houston's city of Arts.
