Good venue but concession stand prices are high
Feb 2020
This is a good venue and the seats are very comfortable. I have always found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. Seat prices can be a tad steep sometimes but that's just supply and demand. There is valet parking available, alternatively there are numerous car parks nearby.

I found the prices for drinks very expensive, $13 for a small glass of wine, my suggestion would be to go somewhere else beforehand and save yourself a few dollars.

good show, good venue
Jan 2020
Parking here is right on site. Good food before the show. Get here a little early to sit down. Good bathroom situation. There is actual time and enough of them to go during intermission. Venue is a nice size. The show can be big, but you don't feel far away even if you are in the last seat.

I have seen numerous Broadway productions at the Hobby Center. Each time, I am reminded of what an amazing venue it is and how Houstonians are very fortunate to have such a beautiful venue in their city. I have been to theaters is other major cities in the US and the Hobby Center is Houston is as first class as they get.

Hobby center is a great place to see a show. Parking is easy, many lots within a few blocks we paid $12. Theater is beautiful, nice and open lobby. Seats are comfortable and didn't feel packed in. We saw Elf the musical which was also great.

Aladdin amazing performance
Jun 2019 • Couples
A Disney show that was outstanding, the performance by all was truly memorable. Story telling at its best with the set and props( magic carpet) was amazing. The best performance we have seen in a long while. Excellent job.

Hobby Center has wonderful shows
Nov 2018
I would give Hobby Center a 5 star because the shows are World Class! All though I expect the ticket prices to be considerably higher in New York, I would hope we don't have to pay as much in my home town. Ticket prices and bathroom lines are my complaint! Some levels you must go up or down to find a bathroom and the lines are long and take up entire intermission, which means you can't go get a beverage during this time.

Nice space, easy access and parking
Mar 2019 • Couples
Great seating with unobstructed views and good sound. Very easy to get to, with options for drinks or dining before the show. You are also permitted to takes drinks into the theater. Parking is in adjacent building for $15 the evening I attended.

Oklahoma! was a great play at Hobby
Sep 2018
I had heard a lot about this play and finally had a chance to see it. We were all happy and entertained. The staff at the Hobby Center are most helpful and professional as they guided us to the private reception and then the play.

Beautiful Center!
Jan 2019 • Friends
Went to see a play at the Hobby Center and it is an amazing play to see a play. My seat was in the orchestra section, in the middle of the last row of the first section. Had a great view of the stage. Sound was perfect and the building is beautiful. I didn't partake of the food in the lobby, but it was available for those who needed a drink or snack. It was an easy in and easy out for me because I road a bus from our clubhouse. Try it! Think you will like it.

Small, intimate theater
Dec 2018 • Friends
Joined a friend to see "Potted Potter". The theater was small which lent to a very enjoyable performance. The actors were able to interact and connect with the audience in way that would be impossible in a larger theater. Although we were on the side, our seats were fantastic and we had a great view of the stage. The theater is older so some upgrades are needed. But it makes for a pleasant theater experience.
