Zilkha Hall

800 Bagby
Houston, TX 77002
This gorgeous stunner is the newest and most beautiful jewel in the Theater District's glittering tiara. Inside, the 2,650-seat Sarofim Hall stuns with both its ornate yet tasteful neo-Victorian splendor and its stellar acoustics, and is home to Theatre Under the Stars and the Broadway in Houston series. Those who fill the 500 seats in the more intimate Zilkha Hall are treated to performances by everything from alt-country singer-songwriters to Tamil dance troupes.
