In and around Houston, there are more than a handful of off the beaten path theaters that many patrons might have missed. The Hobby Center and Alley Theatre have not cornered the theater market in Houston, there are many quality theaters that you might want to check in on either before the seasons close or for their 2014-2015 seasons.
Be sure to stay tuned, these are only five of the best theaters I have had the pleasure to attend productions, but more will be featured soon. Be sure to check back for other local venues who didn't make the list this time around. Each theater is unique in its own way and has qualities that make it the best of the best. Click through each image in the list and see what wonderful productions you might be missing out on and be sure to visit each of their sites for more information about current and upcoming productions.
Houston is made great by the people who continue to strive to find and create the best theatrical experiences possible. Quality theater doesn't have to be out of reach, although it just might have missed your grasp. Each of these theaters have performances that cater to offering productions everyone can afford with specials such as "pay what you can" or student rates (be sure to check theater specifications to see which theaters participate in these discounts and on what nights). Find the theater that is right for you and get connected. Theater is still alive and thriving in the Houston area.
