    Wortham Theater Center

The Wortham Center stands as a monument to the generosity of Houston’s foundations, corporations, and individuals and is a symbol of the heart and spirit of Houston. This performance arts center consists of two theaters: The Alice and George Brown Theater with 2,405 seats and the Lillie and Roy Cullen Theater with 1,100 seats. Stunning elements like an 88-foot tall glass archway entry, high ceilings, and a multi-terraced grand foyer earned the Wortham Center recognition as the most significant new opera and ballet house in the nation upon its original completion.
