Arts District Suite at Fairmont

In preparation for the opening of the Dallas Center for the Performing Arts, the nearby Fairmont hotel has created an Arts District Suite.

In addition to posters from arts organizations, the room includes a library of DVDs and CDs of local performances, including Maria Callas' appearance with what was then called the Dallas Civic Opera.

Star Trek's George Takei (Sulu) stayed in the suite last weekend while in town to speak to supporters of the Crow Collection of Asian Art.

DCPA Lexus Broadway Series

A friend and I attended the unveiling of the Lexus Broadway Series yesterday at Booker T. high. Several gentlemen from Lexus were there to receive kind words from Mark Nerenhausen, President/CEO of DCPA, and a big round of applause for their hard work.

The inaugural season is going to be great! We were even treated to a song from Spring Awakening by two wonderful, young performers.

The inaugural season tickets are on sale now for: August:Osage County, Avenue Q, South Pacific, and Spring Awakening. It's going to be a great season of music and theater. See you there!
