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.

High energy, fun dancing and powerful singing. Won't be in my top 10 musicals as it was predictable but entertaining nonetheless.

We have season tickets and we will never let them go! Whether you buy the whole package for the season, or just one show at a time, this is a must for Houstonians and beyond. We love the shows, and it's always a great night out. Terrific talent! Don't forget to make reservations at Artista to eat dinner if you... More

I have been to numerous TUTS shows over a 15 year period. The theater is really world class, and there is a nice variety of shows, all done very professionally. Among my favorites are the ones that include children from the Humphries school, which the Houston theater school for children. There is a nice area to get drinks before the... More
