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.

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.

A co-production with Goodman Theatre


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.
