I can't believe that this place isn't number one in AMERICA, never mind Houston! Grand Canyon Schmand Canyon! Mount Rushmore? Overrated! The Music Box Theater is the true national treasure! These performers are not only gorgeous, but they can also sing a little! Brad is so sexy! SO SEXY!!! And Long Le the bass player is a hunk! Oh how... More

I was visiting Houston and taken to The Music Box. I did not expect the outstanding evening of entertainment I was fortunate to receive. In this small venue I got Broadway quality music. The Music Box is operated by two couples who collect tickets, seat the guest and do whatever else needs to be done. Then they step on stage... More

This minimalist facility is the home of an enormously talented ensemble of three women and two men. Casual with clean humor.

We saw The Music Box Does Broadway & thoroughly enjoyed the performance. Each Broadway song was performed with high energy, excellent vocals, & superb musical accompaniment. The theater is a small, intimate venue & every seat is a good seat.

A delightful way to spend a lively evening with family and friends. A small talented group of performing artists is truly grateful for your patronage and work hard and cheerfully to show their appreciation.

The Music Box Theater has become one of my very favorite places in Houston. Last night I attended my fifth show there, a Broadway review, and loved every minute of it. All the shows have been great. Done in cabaret style, the productions are professional, and the five performers and band are so talented. I have found the shows a... More

Wonderful "little known" performance space. Went to the Music Box to see a cabaret-type Broadway revue with my spouse and 3 children and we all enjoyed. My teens were excited for the modern, relevant ("Hamilton") songs. My husband enjoyed "the oldies." Friendly, fun, warm, inviting. Performers greet audience as they arrive and keep the show casual and lively and entertaining.... More

This was the second time I've been to one of the shows at The Music Box Theater and both times were a hit! The musicians are extraordinarily talented and they bring their exquisite humor into a delightfully entertaining evening. If you're looking for a fun night of Broadway and popular hits, then don't miss this one!

We took my brother and sister-in-law to see The Music Box Does Broadway. We all enjoyed the show immensely. The group is always entertaining and all have great range of voice. It is wonderful to see the passion on their faces as they sang. Loved it. We are planning to go back and see their production of Happily Ever at... More

These are some of the most talented people in the world! You will not be disappointed. Each show is different and professionally put together. The band is terrific also. No need to go to NYC for a great show, just go to the Music Box.
