Off Broadway on Flora
2014/15 - The Inaugural Season
AT&T Performing Arts Center
The AT&T Performing Arts Center announced today a new theatrical subscription series: Off Broadway On Flora. The concept will feature adventurous and challenging touring productions, many of which have enjoyed sold-out success off Broadway and elsewhere.
“This fills a unique niche in Dallas by showcasing acclaimed performances that originated off Broadway or perhaps somewhere else,” said Doug Curtis, the Center’s president and CEO. “These aren’t big Broadway productions, but instead smaller shows that may be a little edgier or have a more offbeat appeal. We’re very excited with the programs we have in our first season.”
The inaugural 2014/2015 season begins September 3-6, 2014 with Buyer & Cellar starring Ugly Betty star and Plano native Michael Urie, the winner of the 2014 Lucille Lortel Award for Best Solo Show. The season continues in November with the 55th Anniversary Tour of the legendary comedic talent of The Second City. In February 2015 the season continues with The Great Tragedies, four unique monologues created and performed by Mike Daisey, one of the most engaging and controversial solo performers and monologists of his time. In May, we’ll present the clever satire of Stop Hitting Yourself created by Austin’s Rude Mechs. The season culminates June 25-27 with Love, Loss, and What I Wore, the intimate collection of stories by Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron.
“The Dallas theatre scene has never been more vibrant with local companies producing works recognized far and wide for their artistic excellence,” said Mr. Curtis. “For theatre lovers, this series, presented in smaller performance spaces, makes a great addition to the mix.”
Each production will be staged in one of several venues that straddle Flora Street, which runs through the heart of the Dallas Arts District. Venues for the inaugural season include Hamon Hall in the Winspear Opera House, Potter Rose Performance Hall in the Wyly Theatre and Dallas City Performance Hall.
