Big City Experiences, Small Town Prices
The Best Houston Has To Offer
Houston, Texas is one of the largest cities in the United States, but it has rarely been seen as a city with a lot to offer. The truth is that Houston has all of the amenities that you would expect from a large city, but most of the prices tend to be much lower and affordable for families. There are several theatrical performances in Houston that showcase what the city has to offer residents and visitors alike.
The Miller Outdoor Theater is the largest theater in the United States that is perpetually open for free to the public. Throughout the course of the year the theater puts on a number of plays and musical performances that are available at no charge to the public, including classical music and Shakespeare, to modern jazz and experimental theater. This is one of the premier showcases for Houston’s local acting talent and many of Houston’s best actors get their start at the Miller Theater.
Theater Under The Stars (TUTS)
For big budget productions and some of the best Broadway and off-Broadway productions in Houston, TUTS is the place to go. They try to strike a balance between famous performances that everyone has heard of, and new musicals that just need to find an audience. All of the performances are treated as big budget shows, and all of the sets, costumes and actors are of the highest quality in the city. The calendar includes a number of performances that are specifically geared towards children, as well as shows that are meant for a more mature audience.
Murder Mystery Texas
A more intimate showcase of the entertainment in Houston is Murder Mystery Texas. This interactive dinner theater experience allows guests to become investigators in a murder mystery and throughout the performance guests are given clues about how committed the crime. By the time the meal is over, the guests should have a good idea about who the guilty party might be, and the staff gives awards for the best and most humorous solutions. Because the experience is interactive, guests get the opportunity to get up close and personal with some of Houston’s local acting talent.
From big outdoor productions and Broadway shows, to intimate dinner shows, Houston has something for everyone. This big city has all of the amenities that you would expect from a large urban area, all while keeping prices low for families.
