Description

The Ensemble Theatre was founded in 1976 by the late George Hawkins to preserve African American artistic expression and enlighten, entertain and enrich a diverse community. Over thirty-five years later, the theatre has evolved from a touring company operating from the trunk of Mr. Hawkins’ car to being one of Houston’s finest historical cultural institutions.

I bought two tickets to see the play Meet Vera Stark and was disappointed. Although much of the content was meaningful I found the language to be distasteful, disrespectful and unnecessary. Many of the regular patrons of this theater are older adults. As an African American community with traditional strong spiritual roots and a reputation of southern "respect", we should not reduce ourselves to bringing the same foul language we hear daily from the secular theaters into the only theater that should be more "family friendly". There are so many other words in the human language to articulate and communicate a thought or idea without consistently words like the "F---" and "B----" words in the plays.

I love this Theatre! They are committed to bringing the best in Arts and Culture to the Houston community! 40 years of service...with programs like "Santa at the Ensemble" where children can experience story time and caroling; eat Christmas cookies, and best of all take a picture with Santa! They also have classes your child can attend through the Young Performers program! My budding Thespian has attended and his confidence and skill has improved dramatically. And I can't say enough about Artistic Director, Eileen Morris!! She is a Visionary!! Come see a play... purchase a Subcription...or Volunteer! Do whatever you can to support this amazing organization!

I saw Fences, the Robert Townsend Solo Show and a third production there. It was one of the most enjoyable theater experiences I've had west of The Shubert on Broadway. A lovely reception area with bar & seating, an amazing staff, not a bad seat in the house. The assistance provided during intermission for handicap as well as special drink request was outstanding. They have made the best use of the space & resources and it's my first entertainment destination whenever my wife & I are in Houston.

Went to the theatre for the first time. The show was incredible! Thoughtful. Great stage presence. Some distractions with a few character wardrobe but overall, talented actors and produced well. Theatre is a great location in midtown. Only issue was the audio which was poor. The production was great and it was painful to get out of a scene because of feedback.

Really? Be Ensemble Theater is one of the most prominent and oldest African American theaters in the south. In terms of Houston this is a must go if you are a local or you are visiting and enjoyed the theatrical Arts. I personally know a couple of the key staff members and they are all very down-to-earth and inviting. My first show that I went to was the Emmett Till story and it was absolutely phenomenal. I will never forget that day

The Ensemble Theatre is very important asset to the arts in the city of Houston. Last night, I experienced an example of the outstanding plays that it exhibits, Soulful Sounds of Christmas.

The Ensemble is one of the best theaters in Houston. It is one of the oldest African American Theaters in the country. Geat prodution values. Thoughtful and interesting shows. They have a full season of show that are varied from comedy and musicals to well done classic theater ignored by other venues. Parking can be problematic. Its in the popular mid town area. But always a rewarding experience.

My mother took my brothers and I to productions at the ensemble as a little girl. For many years I have tried to audition here but kept missing the dates. This year I auditioned and I wasn't selected but I was soooo impressed by all that goes in at this theater. I learned so much from the staff and gained so much respect for this theater. They poured so much into us as we waited to audition and as we learned the music and choreography for our audition. I will forever support this theater and am highly impressed

Great Bridal Shower Event hosted here on a Sunday afternoon. There may need to be some type of drapery for all the crime that happens on the railway. The police were called three times during our event.
