“Great Theatre in Dallas”
Reviewed 29 July 2011

I just want to comment the Dallas Theatre Center for putting on a great schedule of interesting, fun, creative, and well executed plays year after year. This year they transformed the Wyly Theater into a German Cabaret night club for the musical Cabaret, and had the audience sitting on stage with the cast, as if we were in the cabaret watching live. The actor that played the MC was phenomenal.

We just saw another great performance, the Wiz. The DTC creatively sat about half the audience in movable "pods" that changed locations and moved about the stage. My daughters and I were right in the middle of the action on stage during most of the play.

Finally, please do yourself a favor and attend a performance during the holidays of "A Christmas Carol". The DTC does it every year, and it is absolutely stellar. It is Broadway quality here in Dallas. Thank you, DTC, you are an asset to our community.

“An amazing show at a great theater”
Reviewed 23 December 2010

We went to the theater for the first time and saw "A Christmas Carol." The show was absolutely amazing. The costumes, the set design, the actors were all fantastic. The building was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, which makes it that much more special. It was definitely a highlight to our visit.
