Houston is known for many wonderful things. Whether it’s the beautiful parks, the wide selection of foods that can be found at great restaurants, or the many museums where residents and visitors alike can open their minds to worlds of possibilities, we here at Proguard know there’s plenty to like about our beloved city. In celebration of World Theater Day on March 27, we thought we’d take some time to showcase the many jewels that can be found throughout a 17-block area in Houston’s Theater District.
A nonprofit theatre on Texas Avenue, Alley Theatre is home to a resident company of actors who are well-known in Houston for putting on some of the best plays anywhere in the city. Whether it’s a classic production or a newer play making its premiere, the team at Alley Theatre always leaves the audience wanting more.
An absolutely stunning and state-of-the-art building, Jones Hall is home to the Houston Symphony. Featuring marble facades, a red and gold interior, and 800 hexagons that can be repositioned to enhance the building’s acoustics, attending a concert at Jones Hall will be something you’ll always remember.
Wortham Theater Center
If you enjoy ballet and opera, make plans to stop by the Wortham Theater Center. A massive building at nearly 440,000 square feet, it contains both the Alice and George Brown Theater and the Lillie and Roy Cullen Theater. Regularly playing host to ballets, operas, and other concerts and productions, the Wortham Theater Center has been a fixture in Houston for well over three decades.
Whether you’ve just finished watching a performance or want to fill up before a concert or play starts, eating a meal at Birraporetti’s Downtown will always make you glad you paid a visit to the Theater District. Featuring classic Italian dishes like lobster ravioli and veal parmigiana, your taste buds will thank you with each bite. You can enjoy live jazz music during the Sunday brunch buffet, as well as live music each Monday.
Revention Music Center
You can also head to Bayou Place for a concert at Revention Music Center. Having hosted the likes of Sting, Coldplay, and others through the years, a great concert is always guaranteed at Revention.
Hard Rock Cafe
No visit to the Houston Theater District would be complete without stopping by the Hard Rock Cafe. When you do, you’ll be able to partake in plenty of rock and roll nostalgia, as well as choose from fantastic burgers, salads, and more.
After you finish up at your Proguard storage unit, make plans to check out these great spots in the Theater District. From concerts and plays to ballets and more, there’s something for everyone here in Houston’s Theater District.
