Best of Dallas 2009: High Culture On the Cheap at the Dallas Hub Theater

At the Dallas Hub Theater, founder and producer Tim Shane has kept production costs low by reusing set pieces, showcasing work from new playwrights, and driving through a blizzard with old rows of seats donated by an East Coast movie theater. You can hear from Shane in the video tour above, and read more about the theater in Elaine Liner's sidebar to this year's Best of Dallas Culture section.

We've got a handful of other videos from subjects of our Best of Dallas sidebar stories to give you a few more ways into this year's issue:
Market: Marc and Roger Andres remaking Henderson Avenue
Sports: The Lingerie Football League's Dallas Desire
Food: Low-profile chefs leading the back-to-basics cooking movement
Music: Defining the Dallas Club Sound with DJ Drop
