Consider yourself warned, and come
to the Be-In.
DTC lets the sunshine in with a fullyimmersive, only-at-the-Wyly production of
the groundbreaking classic rock musical.
50 years after its premiere, Hair continues
to assault the status quo, while shining
a bright light on the power of love over
hate, peace over war, freedom over
repression, and hope over despair. At
once emblematic of its era and relevant
for a new generation of audiences today,
the story follows a group of young people
as they navigate their relationships
with their country and with each other.
Overflowing with free love, buzzing with
youthful energy, and pulsing with iconic
rock anthems, DTC’s Hair brings the Age
of Aquarius into the twenty-first century.

Part 2 of
All the Way
The Great Society follows the success of
Dallas Theater Center’s 2016 production
of All the Way, continuing the story of
Lyndon Johnson’s turbulent presidency
in the second part of Robert Schenkkan’s
epic theatrical event. While the president
fights a “war on poverty” at home, his war
in Viet Nam begins to spiral out of control.
Besieged by political enemies, Johnson
desperately campaigns to pass civil
rights legislation and some of the most
important social programs in American
history, even while the country turns
against him and descends into chaos.
Filled with a cast of legendary characters
- from Martin Luther King, Jr. to Bobby
Kennedy and Richard Nixon - The Great
Society is an exhilarating examination of
power, morality and change.

“IN THE NAME OF
THE CONSTITUTION
OF TEXAS, WHICH
HAS BEEN TRAMPLED
UPON, I REFUSE TO
TAKE THIS OATH.”
Sam Houston
by
AARON LOEB
KEVIN MORIARTY
directed by
On the eve of the state’s secession in
1861, Governor Sam Houston is torn
between loyalty to Texas and loyalty
to the United States. As he weighs the
terrible choice he must make, certain
of the devastating cost of either path,
Houston tells Jeff Hamilton (his office
clerk and slave) of a time when he, and
the Union itself, stood trial. This searing,
world-premiere drama presents the true
story of some of America’s most famous
leaders – Andrew Jackson, Francis
Scott Key, and John Quincy Adams,
among others – and one man’s struggle
with what it means to be brave in the
land of the free.

LEE SUNDAY EVANS
In the South, tradition is sacred and
change is slow. So when the Civil
Rights movement comes to Jackson,
Mississippi, it’s in for a brutal fight.
Spanning the 1960s and 70s,
Miller, Mississippi tells the story of
one family that falls apart as the country
attempts to come together. In the classic
Southern Gothic tradition, the world
premiere of this tragic new play will
stun minds and break hearts, as the
personal and political combine to bring
about the Miller family’s undoing.

DIALOGUE IS WITTY”

CHRISTIE VELA
directed by
When Lucia, a young Mexican born
novelist, begins her dream career as
a television writer in L.A, she finds
herself much more comfortable with
the only other Latino around, one of the
janitors, than with anyone in the writers’
room. This new comic-drama by Tanya
Saracho, a writer for HBO’s Girls and
ABC’s How to Get Away with Murder,
poses tricky questions about identity
and community, as Lucia struggles to
bridge the distance between where she
came from and where she’s going.

THE PLAY YOU WILL SEE IS SEALED
INSIDE AN ENVELOPE. The actor who
will perform this play has never seen
it. In fact, there is a new actor every
performance, and they’ve only been told
what is absolutely necessary:
White Rabbit
“Do not Google this play. Prepare to
impersonate a XXX. Once you start, you
must finish... NO MATTER WHAT.”
WHITE RABBIT RED RABBIT has been
called a play. But it’s a lively, global
sensation that no one is allowed to talk
about. Its award-winning playwright
is Iranian. His words have escaped
censorship and are awaiting you,
the audience. Slyly humorous and
audaciously pointed, this ‘theater
entertainment meets social experiment’
is unlike anything, and will make you
question everything. Have fun!

‘Tis the season to be jolly, when the
family-favorite, holiday production
of A Christmas Carol returns to the
Wyly Theatre. In this delightfully reimagined take on Dickens’ enduring
classic the audience is surrounded
by the actors, with magical ghosts
flying above, scary ghosts bursting
out of the floor, and snow falling on
everyone. Full of traditional Christmas
hymns and songs in fresh, toe-tapping
musical arrangements, joyful bursts of
choreography, and eye-popping special
effects, A Christmas Carol is Dallas’
favorite “must-see” holiday tradition.
