Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

The Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre is a great space for experimentation, and that's due as much to its design as its creative occupants. Crafted to be fully modular, the area accommodates almost any stage layout one can envision. Like a giant Transformer, it morphs. Removable seating, drop down floors, mechanized balconies -- they all work together to provide infinite options for how we choose to offer and view live theater.

Still, knowing and seeing are different things, so check out this new time lapse video. It spans six hours of work by 11 employees as they clear all theatrical evidence out of the 575-seat Potter Rose Performance Hall.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
