First time to an African-American themed theater. This was great fun. A well written and funny play focusing on three women who are at critical emotional stages in their life. The theater is very nice and quite cozy. Every seat is a good one. The...More

Professional and entertaining actors. They carried us along through the script, making us feel joy, laughter, sadness. Venue is comfortable and intimate. Lighting and sound system perfect. Loved the play! Will return!

This is a wonderful venue. Small enough so every seat is a good one. This August Wilson play was very well done. I absolutely enjoyed the night. Bravo!

I second everything the other reviewer says about there not being a bad seat in the house and the quality of the performances. Well done each time I've gone. I've even gone with a horrible date and the performance was my saving grace. Get tickets...More

I visit the Ensemble Theatre each year - taking in about three shows. This is one of my favorite places in Houston. It's a very small, intimate theatre - which is great because all the seats are good seats. The actors are phenomenal and each...More
