    Great evening - the symphony pops group did a fantastic job of integrating w Pink Martini. Seats were in BB center with a very good view of the stage. Easy parking. They just needed more bartenders.

    Composed of hundreds of movable hexagons, they can be used to shrink the space from 3,000 seats to 1,800 by dipping from the roof to eliminate the balcony.

    Such a talented group. Best seats are right on the balcony. Great acoustics and low ticket price.

    Tonight was the best Beethoven Triple I've played or heard and it was with our own Concertmaster, Frank Huang, and Principal Cellist Brinton Smith, and that's 29 years of orchestral playing for me!

    Take Uber and skip the hike from the parked car. Be prepared for LOTS of stairs. One single over-sized elevator moves at a snail's pace.

    Beautiful and architecturally ambitious symphonic hall. You're going to want to sit as close as you can afford to, however.

    Speaking of restrooms, the lower level men's room received the "most unfortunate door and mirror placement in all Houston" award. From the lower lobby a full 5 seconds of AWKWARD.

    Pre-order drinks and they will be ready when you come out for intermission. . .no waiting in a long line and you will get a table.

    Disappointing hall: terrible acoustics (orchestra sections cannot hear each other), awkward to get in and out of seats due to lack of aisles. Poorly designed from the start.

    Cross the theatre at Row 18 instead of walking all the way around the back to get to seats on the other side

    Tip: Use the restroom *before* your performance starts. (The restrooms on the lower level often are less crowded than those on upper levels.) Read more

    This Shen Yun performance is over-marketed and is very overpriced. I feel bad for the people who paid 200+
