Wyly Theatre

2400 Flora St. Dallas, TX 75201 | Downtown & Deep Ellum | 214-880-0202

Location Description:

One of the four venues at the epicenter of the Arts District, the AT&T Performing Arts Center, the Wyly is one of the city’s most distinctive structures. It was designed by renowned architect Rem Koolhaas, and its trailblazing 12-story layout means the theater can switch to any number of different configurations at the press of a (very high-tech) button. Whether you’re a drama nerd or an admitted theater hater, it’s worth a visit for the architecture alone.
