As long time Houston residents ... we had never heard of 'The Music Box Theater' ... thank you social media. The theater is locally owned and operated by the entertainers. They are celebrating their 7th year. The talent is truly diverse aka Psychology major at the University of Houston, "born and raised in Detroit, Michigan", "born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio", "a native of Fall River, Massachusetts", and "born in Houston and raised in Richmond, Texas".

We saw the “Broadway” show and really enjoyed ourselves. The cast is super talented, the venue is intimate with close seating, the show is entertaining start to finish, and everyone makes you feel like you are a special guest. It’s a wonderful experience you don’t find many places!

I have been to "The Music Box Theater" in Houston many times. It's my favorite live venue in Houston. Every time I go, when I walk out I say "this was the best show yet"
Their song selections are always spectacular along with their musical talents.

This Saturday my wife and I and four guests will be attending our 6th or 7th performance at "The Box". The cast is very talented. The singing and the band are great. The small cast of 5 are extremely versatile and they seem to be able to sing in any style and more than one language. At least as good as the music is the writing. There is always a "story" that somehow loosely weaves its way along to provide a vehicle for the introduction of the next number. These are often quite clever and its fun to try and see if you can guess what the story is leading up to and what the next number may be. Each member of the cast is capable of doing a song "straight" or as a parody of the original. The cast consists of two married couples and a lovely red head named Cay Taylor. The band is small, maybe 5 pieces, but they make a big sound and they are pros - they add a lot to the experience. The whole ensemble group have been doing this for 7 or 8 years now. It must be an enormous amount of work to select the songs, write a story to weave them into and then rehearse it all. Still, they somehow manage to do something like 7 or 8 (or more) unique shows every year. Most important - they seem to absolutely LOVE what they are doing on stage. You have fun watching because they seem to be having such fun performing. I didn't count, but I am guessing that there are only 50 seats (give or take) in the house - and so, there are no bad seats. They serve wine, beer and munchies at the bar at reasonable prices which you can take to your seat in the theater. If you haven't been to this little theater - go! I guarantee you will have a fun evening. It will remind you why "live" theater is something special and something we should all try to support.

We go every month, or at least to every show cycle. It is a intimate venue, the performance quality is great, they really value their guests, acknowledging frequent visitors. Light bites and drinks are available, but we usually catch dinner before hand at one of the restaurants within walking distance of the theatre
