Readers' Choice: Dallas Theater Center
With government support of the arts disappearing, public support of live theater is going strong at Dallas Theater Center. The 2010-'11 season, starting with Shakespeare's Henry IV and ending with The Wiz, was 51-year-old DTC's biggest-ever box office year. Patrons packed the house for Arsenic and Old Lace (performed at Kalita Humphreys Theater, DTC's first home). Cabaret, which reconfigured the 600-seat Wyly into a massive Berlin nightclub, had waiting lists for tickets. Artistic director Kevin Moriarty isn't afraid to challenge actors and audience, coming up with new shapes for the stage and seating for each new show at the Wyly. DTC also is a friend to theater students at SMU and Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts, casting them in plays and creating internship programs in all areas of the company. Using more local talent every year, DTC again is the theater young and old Dallas actors aspire to work in and theatergoers count on for top-tier entertainment.

LOVE DTC! And I would enjoy seeing a Kurt Kleinmann Black and White comedy there! Mr Klienmann has been at the B&W theatre biz for years and has the execution down to a science! And being that his Pegasus Theatre company is a Dallas staple- it just makes sense to host a Kleinmann piece there! LOVE the Black and White Murder Mysteries!
