Unique Venue Gets First Major Rigging Upgrade in Nearly 50 Years
The Miller Theatre, located within Hermann Park in Houston, TX, is a unique venue. An outdoor, full-proscenium theatre, the original facility was built in 1923. Rebuilt in 1968, the Miller now includes a 64-by-41-foot stage, 54 line sets, an orchestra lift and a 100-ton air conditioning system to cool the performance area. Seating is provided for approximately 1,700 patrons, with a sloping lawn that accommodates roughly 4,500 more.
