“Excellent venue”
Reviewed 4 August 2012

Excellent venue where there is usually a musical going on. Parking is convenient either in a structure behind the theater or underground in front of the theater. Seen a few Broadway musicals here. Views from the balcony are fairly good; I like having a view of the whole stage. There is a gift shop available as well. The main bathrooms are on the lower level, so be prepared for crowds at intermission.

“Musicals rule at the Hobby!”
Reviewed 17 July 2012

There's always a musical production in house, so treat yourself to professional productions with either Broadway performers or talented Houston talent. Parking's convenient and so is grabbing a bite to eat before the show. Don't forget to stop by the gift shop, full of musical memorabilia!

“Menapause”
Reviewed 16 July 2012

What a hilarious show! And the Hobby Center is easy to get to. Small enough venue for this show that it was intimate. we're going again!

“Lovely!”
Reviewed 11 July 2012

I have been to the Hobby Center many times for different shows - Wicked, Phantom of the Opera and more. It's a great place to see traveling Broadway shows. I have never sat in a bad seat and it has fantastic acoustics. There is even a little place to grab some snacks or a light meal if you need it (we did - pretty good food). It wasn't too over priced either!
Parking is a little difficult, so my advice is to bring some cash for the valet - it's worth it.
