The Miller Outdoor Theatre features a diverse array of entertainment throughout the season (closing by mid November). Very family friendly, especially on the hill behind the seating area with lawn chairs or a picnic blanket. Everything from Shakespeare, to Opera, to motown, to Cambodian circus performers, can be see on various evenings throughout the spring-fall. Arrive early to get a... More

Lots of various concerts and music events. Some are free and some cost money but are very affordable. Summers can be warm and humid but fall and spring are the best times. Bring food for a picnic on the lawn.

This a must place to visit when in Houston. Most presentations are free and for all audiences. Clean setting, security everywhere & pretty well organized.

My family loves the Miller Outdoor Theater. They do free shows for kids on the summer that are excellent. I've never been disappointed.

Nice Shakespearean play. I enjoyed picnic on the lawn while watching the performance. The weather was nice and no mosquitoes. Everything was perfect.

Great performances in a beautiful setting, and best of all it's free. We spent two decades in Houston before discovering, or at least taking advantage of this gem. Don't make the same mistake.

An added bonus to the already great Hermann Park. Free shows are scheduled almost all the time. Get tickets to reserved seats from 10:30 to 1 on the day of the show and again an hour before the show starts, or just bring your food and beverages and lay a blanket on the grass. Reserved seating area is covered and... More

I can't review this place for concerts but if you have young kids, I would choose somewhere else to be for 4th of July. Whatever they say the start time is, the fireworks don't start until 1030. Right before the fireworks, they set off cannons that will potentially traumatize your kid. Then they do it again. You can't hear any... More
