Music and Lyrics by LIN-MANUEL MIRANDA  |  Book by QUIARA ALEGRÍA HUDES  |  Conceived by LIN-MANUEL MIRANDA
Directed by JAMES VASQUEZ  |  Choreogrpahed by RICKEY TRIPP
Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre, SEP 21 - OCT 20, 2019

From the creator of Hamilton, In the Heights tells the universal story of a vibrant community in New York’s Washington Heights neighborhood – a place where the coffee from the corner bodega is light and sweet, the windows are always open and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music. It’s a community on the brink of change, full of hopes, dreams and pressures, where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you, and which ones you leave behind. And just like Hamilton in 2016, Lin-Manuel Miranda's In the Heights is the winner of the 2008 Tony Awards® for Best Musical, Best Score, Best Choreography and Best Orchestrations.

 

 

 

 

Written by HOLLAND TAYLOR  |  Starring LIBBY VILLARI  |  Directed by KRISTEN VAN GINHOVEN
Kalita Humphreys Theater,  OCT 15 - NOV 10, 2019

Ann reveals the feisty and unadulterated life of legendary Texas Governor Ann Richards in a "blisteringly funny" (Washingtonian Magazine) play written by Emmy Award-winning actress and writer Holland Taylor (The PracticeTwo and a Half Men). Now an icon, both heroic and hilarious, Ann Richards is profoundly inspiring. While her leadership as a woman couldn’t be more timely, she remains truly a woman for all seasons.  Libby Villari's performance is an intimate chronicle of Richards’ legacy and how she was determined to do what she could to 'make life better for people' and open government up to everyone. In her valiant and inimitable way, she has made her mark on the world.  “Frank, funny and warm” (New York Times), Ann is a captivating tribute to Richards’ life as an activist, politician and feminist champion.

Written by KATE HAMILL  |  Based on the novel by LOUISA MAY ALCOTT 
Kalita Humphreys Theater, FEB 7 - MARCH 1, 2020

Jo March doesn't want to be like other girls; in fact, she's not even sure that she wants to be a girl. Jo is ambitious, rough around the edges, headstrong, and yearns for a future she can’t yet articulate. As the nation is torn apart by civil war, Jo and her sisters struggle with what it means to grow up. Gender roles, political beliefs, poverty, and even love itself threaten to break family ties, as the March sisters try to reconcile their identities with society’s demands. How do you stay true to yourself when the world wants you to become a perfect little woman?  Acclaimed playwright Kate Hamill (Sense and Sensibility) returns to Dallas Theater Center with a new examination of this classic novel.

 

 

 

 

 

Music and Lyrics by JOSÉ CRUZ GONZALEZ  |  Directed by HENRY GODINEZ
Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre,  MARCH 14 - APRIL 5, 2020

Spending her days caring for her ailing mother, Lucha yearns to break her monotonous routine. Here’s a wild idea: an all-girl mariachi band! But it’s the 1970s, and girls can’t be mariachis...or can they? As Lucha and her spunky cousin hunt for bandmates, dodge disapproving relatives, and bring Mom along for the ride, they wonder: will the band come together? American Mariachi is a heartwarming and hilarious comedy about family, progress, and the freedom to dream big that will send your heart soaring and put a bounce in your step with a wave of vibrant, infectious live music. A huge hit in San Diego and Denver, now coming to Dallas, before moving on to Chicago.

Written by DOMINIQUE MORRISEAU  |  Directed by TIFFANY NICHOLE GREENE
Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre, Studio Theatre,  APRIL 3 - MAY 3, 2020

Nya, an inner-city public high school teacher, is committed to her students but desperate to give her only son Omari opportunities they’ll never have. When a controversial incident at his upstate private school threatens to get him expelled, Nya must confront his rage and her own choices as a parent. But will she be able to reach him before a world beyond her control pulls him away? 

With profound compassion and lyricism, Morisseau pens a deeply moving story of a mother’s fight to give her son a future — without turning her back on the community that made him who he is — and brings an urgent conversation powerfully to the fore. Pipeline comes to Dallas after a celebrated run at New Yorks City's Lincoln Center and a broadcast on PBS.

Playwrights Welcome is a new program developed for Dramatists Guild of America Members by Samuel French along with Dramatists Play Service, Dramatic Publishing, Music Theatre International, Playscripts and Rodgers and Hammerstein. The goal is simple: to provide free access to theater for playwrights, composers and lyricists. We are invested in the success and artistic health of our industry’s writers, and by extension the vibrancy of the American theater. We’re also aware that attending theater is an integral part to how writers learn their craft and grow as artists.

Dallas Theater Center is proud to take part in Playwrights Welcome, which offers available tickets to professional playwrights on the day of a performance, free of charge. To receive a ticket through Playwrights Welcome at DTC, please contact the box office in person or by phone @ (214) 880-0202 on the day of the performance you’d like to attend. Please note that a Dramatists Guild membership card is required to pick up tickets, and there is a limit of two free tickets per member. Available while supplies last.
Other restrictions may apply.
