"Adrian Hall is a legend in American theater, having run two major companies at once: the Dallas Theater Center and the Trinity Rep in Rhode Island, which won the regional Tony Award in 1981. He established the DTC's first professional acting ensemble and built the Arts District Theater, a metal warehouse where the Winspear now stands. Hall is one of our last, living ties to the early resident theater movement and to off-Broadway in the '50s.
And now that history may be disappearing."

"Miguel Cervantes, a Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts graduate, who played Angel Obregon, Jr. and Sr. in Dallas Theater Center's Giant in 2012, becomes the first actor other than the show's creator, Lin-Manuel Miranda, to originate the role of the title character in Hamilton."
Among his many talents, chef Stephan Pyles has an intuitive sense of time and place, and that’s evident at Flora Street Cafe, his grand new restaurant in the Dallas Arts District.

"While we huddled under the red oaks at the perimeter of the park, the dragonflies were busy eating mosquitoes and midges and whatever else they could pluck out of the air. This suggests to me that the park has become its own ecosystem."
"A second truck starting hitting the road this summer. By the end of August, the trucks should reach 22,000 students, many in low-income communities where kids and families might not be able to afford or make it to the Perot Museum in downtown Dallas." -KERA
