If the phrase “patron of the arts” always seemed enticing, but tragically unattainable, the time's ripe for reinvention. Dallas Theater Center offers a seats for the highly anticipated local premiere of Red, winner of the 2010 Tony Award for Best Play for as low as $15. It’s a lovely evening for the mostly broke, as John Logan’s masterpiece about the life of artist Mark Rothko can be seen from any available seat, that's the beauty of the Wyly. The DTC (in collaboration with the DMA) is turning the ninth floor of the highly versatile, Transformer-like Wyly Theatre (2400 Flora St.) into the artist’s personal studio — trust us, you won’t want to miss that. The show runs through March 24. Box office opens at 6:30 p.m. and showtime is at 7:30. Call 214-880-0202, or visit dallastheatercenter.org.
Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: Feb. 21. Continues through March 24, 2013
