Live Performances in Dallas

By Jerry Hammond

Broadway, Texas? You could call it that. Many of the theaters in Dallas rival the best Broadway show in New York when referring to talent, opulence and showmanship. From Les Miserables to West Side Story, if you happen to be looking for a star in Texas, you will find it at one of the spectacular theaters Dallas has to give.

Music Hall at Fair Park

Thrilling audiences for over 85 years with impressive classics, such as "Aida", "Phantom of the Opera", and "Miss Saigon", the Music Hall at Fair Park boasts opulent Western european design including six lifting step columns and seating for more than 3,200 folk. The top quality acoustics are frequently feted by musicians who play there. The Music Hall at Fair park offers dining at the Crystal Terrace Restaurant and earphones for the hearing-impaired.

Winspear Opera House

Part of the 10-acre AT&T Performing Humanities Center in downtown Dallas, the new Winspear Opera House seats 2,200 among a marvel of modern design. Its glass cover creates a micro-climate round the monumental locale while its 318-rod candelabrum twinkles over the sounds of The Dallas Opera and illuminates the complex steps of the Texas Ballet Theater. Current performances include "Otello" and "Les Miserables".

McFarlin Auditorium

Located on the grounds of the Southern Methodist University in Dallas, the McFarlin Memorial Auditorium holds the privilege of being on the National Historic Register and hosts dignitaries and important ceremonies as well as world dance corporations and world-renown entertainers, including the Houston Ballet, the St. Louis Symphony and the band Tool. One of the most lovely concert halls in Dallas, the McFarlin seats more than 2,300 in the orchestra, first and 2nd balcony.

Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre

Completed in 2009, this vertical theater in Dallas situated in the AT&T Performing Arts Center features a 12-story construction, hiding the supporting structures from view and opening up the performance space. Additionally, this tall, box-like structure allows performers to open the blinds to reveal the town of Dallas behind the performers. The Wyly Theater also has Pay-What-You-Can tickets, permitting penny-pinching theatergoers to name their own ticket price during the week before a performance.

Do not forget to check out these theaters in Dallas and have some fun.
