Wortham Theater Center

Map & Directions 501 Texas Ave.
Houston, TX 77002


Houston Press' Description

Downtown's Wortham Theater Center was build entirely by through the largess of private sector in the 1980s, and today the multi-stage, multi-theater complex offerings works from some of Houston's most important arts groups, from heavy hitters like the Houston Ballet and Houston Grand Opera to scrappier outfits like Da Camera and Mercury Baroque.

Merchant's Description

The Wortham Center is home to Houston Ballet and Houston Grand Opera. Since its opening in 1987, Wortham has entertained more than 8 million people. It has also served as the backdrop for social galas, corporate functions and even weddings, further underscoring its role as a community center as well as a performing arts venue.

Bold and beautiful, the Wortham is a facility like no other. It is a masterful, creative playground for performing artists, and unrestrained in the exuberance of its architecture. Within this splendid domain are an array of public spaces, both monumental and intimate: the jewel box-like theaters, the soaring six-story Grand Foyer, the delicately scaled Green Room and Founders Salon. Eugene Aubry of Morris Aubry Architects designed Wortham Center.
