Whether your picnic hamper is full of cheese, fruit, and champagne or juice boxes with bags of chips and pb&j sandwiches, settle back under the evening stars for al fresco entertainment with your lover or your children (or both) on the grassy hill that slopes down to this first-class proscenium theatre. But leave your Gucci wallet at home, because this unique venue provides culturally diverse and ticket-worthy performances free of charge. Throughout the year, Miller Outdoor Theatre is host to Houston institutions like the Houston Symphony and lively Broadway musicals. We recall watching Peter Pan here as kids and believing that we might be able to catch the evening breezes around us and fly off to Neverland ourselves. Spread out your blanket and settle down in the grass after dark as you soak up the atmosphere, whether the entertainment is Beethoven, Irving Berlin or Japanese drum circles, and be sure to check out the striking nearby outdoor sculpture before sunset.
