Kitchen Dog Theater

2600 N. Stemmons Freeway, No. 180
Dallas, TX 75204
Best Of
If your theater tastes lean away from Annie and The Sound of Music and more toward the dark or avant garde, you’ll probably find the repertoire at Kitchen Dog Theater to your liking. An intimate (read: small) Uptown venue with stadium-style seating ensures you’ll see every bead of sweat on the actors’ foreheads. Get there early to chat with fellow theater lovers over wine and cheese in the pint-sized cafe area.
