The Arena Theatre has been bringing in mainstream entertainers since the ’70s. Its round revolving stage allows audience members a degree of intimacy with the performers unavailable in a traditional arrangement. The Arena recently received a substantial facelift under new ownership. Upgrades include new sound, lighting systems, led screens and seats. Arena Theatre’s ambitious booking approach has brought some of the best national and international pop, urban, Latin, country and rock talents to Houston.
