This year I've seen four of the performances and have loved each one! The director of the theatre strives to deliver great theatre! End of the Rainbow, The Judy Garland story was captivating as well as heartbreaking. The Marvelous Wonderettes was so funny I was crying from laughter....guests should be prepared to be pulled into the show! Full participation is... More

My wife and I saw Shear Madness here. Really funny play that they tailored to a Houston setting. The theatre itself is a great venue. There are about eight or so rows of seats on three sides of the stage, so you get a decent seat no matter where you are, and you are right in the action. It's also... More

This is a small intimate theater... there are probably about 250 seats in two separate playrooms. It's on the older side but the seats were rather comfortable, bathrooms updated and the concession stand prices were reasonable. We saw "Shear Madness" which was extremely well done- very entertaining and we weren't bored for a second. Parking is a bit tight but... More

We saw Shear Madness which was hysterical and much like the set up at the Kennedy Center. This is a great small theater so every seat is close to the stage but being an old theater, the seats are a bit cramped. Parking is a bit of a challenge - its better to just take Uber. There is valet parking... More

There is not a bad seat in this very cozy theater where you can literally see every expression on the cast's faces. The actors were excellent, the show (Shear Madness) extremely entertaining, and it was an evening well spent. Seats are provided in the lobby to enjoy a drink or snack beforehand, and parking is close by and very reasonable.

First time visit as part of a 4 day getaway to Houston. Easy to get to. The dedicated parking lot was within view and easy walking distance to the theatre. Theatre is relatively small. Seating is on three sides of the stage. Some seats will have obstructed view and are noted as such in the seating chart on the theatre's... More

My husband and I saw the performance of "Big Fish" at Stages and it was terrific! We didn't know what the story was about beforehand and were thoroughly entertained. The actors were fantastic and the staging was well done. This was one of my favorite shows that I have seen recently. Stages doesn't disappoint and always puts on good shows.... More

My husband and I went to see Big Fish last night. Although we have attended quite a few productions at Stages, we both agreed at the intermission this was probably the best. We weren't at all sure how the movie we had seen would be arranged as a musical but it was beautifully done. The vocals & acting were all... More

This musical is a fun night out for the girls???? Underwhelming. It takes advantage of woman wanting to go out with friends and have some fun. And yes it does that - but at the cost of what you would anticipate paying when you see professional productions such as Les Miserable, Phantom of the Opera, etc. Not even close. 5... More
