Grand indeed, this lavish Victorian-era theater is Galveston's top cultural venue.. The Scene This noble throwback to earlier days on the island survived city-stomping hurricanes of 1900 and 1915 and now, seeing its third century, has become Galveston's premier cultural venue. The lavish, 1,000-seat, Victorian-era theater is open to the public for self-guided tours during regular business hours.
The Experience Although most of the acts booked here tend toward the mainstream and middlebrow--like Bill Cosby, the Statler Brothers, Boys Choir of Harlem--you'll occasionally see some edgier offerings, like George Carlin's stand-up act. There are also national touring shows and companies, like "Rent," "Stomp" and the Hong Kong Ballet, that broaden your options for entertainment.
A place for the performing Arts.
The Grand is a wondeful place to watch a play, a musical, and especially the Galveston Ballet, which is a non-profit organization that is a pre-proffesional company. The Grand is a wonderful place to watch the Ballet.
