9/20/2010:
The Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre is a theatre at the AT&T Performing Arts Center, located in the Arts District of downtown Dallas, Texas (USA). It is one of four venues that comprises the AT&T Performing Arts Center which was dedicated October 12, 2009. The 80,300-square-footbuilding is twelve stories and holds about 600 people, depending upon the stage configuration. It is the new venue for the Dallas Theater Center, Dallas Black Dance Theatre and Anita N. Martinez Ballet Folklorico.  The Wyly Theatre was designed by REXOMAJoshua Prince-Ramus (partner in charge) and Pritzker Prize-winning architect Rem Koolhaas. It features a groundbreaking design with an unprecedented “stacked,” vertically organized facility that completely rethinks the traditional form of theatre. It is named for Dee and Charles Wyly, who donated $20 million to the Center.
