Theater in Houston

To the untrained eye, Houston may not seem to have all the glitz and glam of the New York performing arts world, but Houston's theatrical realm is more than capable of satisfying the most devoted theater fans. This arts scene boasts the oldest and largest African American theater of its kind in the Southwest, a devoted comedy theater featuring both local and national artists, the Houston Ballet (the fifth largest company in the country), the Tony Award-winning Alley Theater, and even the fabulous Gay Men's Chorus of Houston, to name a few. From Jones Hall—known for its award-winning architecture—to the critically acclaimed Theater LaB, the world of Houston theaters stands out as one to be rivaled.
