Dallas Theater Center Dallas, Texas

The theater is tucked into the Turtle Creek neighborhood of Dallas.

According to legend, Wright had tried to use this design for a theater on many occasions.  On all of the previous attempts, the commission fell through and the design was not accepted.  Finally the opportunity to use the design in Dallas came up.  Built in 1955, the design was altered to fit the shape of the space and the hill that the theater is placed upon.  There is a long greenway that goes along one side of the theater which gives a great place to stretch your legs before or after a performance.

I attended a musical performance that night.  The acoustics were wonderful.  Though the stage and seating area is quite large, there was no need for amplification.  Unfortunately I was not able to photograph inside the building.
