Mark Your Calendars: Here’s What’s Going on in the Arts District

The Dallas Arts District is the largest contiguous urban arts district in the nation with over 4 million visitors annually. This doesn’t include the daytime population that inhabits the office buildings of the district, including of course, the redesigned and renovated Trammell Crow Center. But let’s say you’re working at Trammell Crow Center and you’d like to stick around after work to grab a bite to eat, a drink (or two), and then catch a show? You’re in luck. Not only are there a plethora of amazing restaurant and cocktail options just a quick walk away, you’re also right next to some of the best entertainment venues like the Winspear Opera House, the Wyly Theater, the Meyerson Symphony Center, the Moody Performance Hall, and many more.


We’re going to preview what’s in store in and around the Arts District for the next few months so that you can plan ahead (and know which mornings you may not want to schedule that early morning client meeting). While there are many amazing shows coming up in the next month or two, here are the ones we’re especially excited about:


February 12  – February 17 – Falsettos at the Winspear Opera House


February 19 – Dallas Chamber Symphony presents Piazzolla’s Four Seasons at the Moody Performance Hall


March 6 – April 14 – The Wolves at the Dallas Theater Center


March 15 – The Chieftans at Strauss Square


March 15 – March 17 – Blinded – Turtles Rock Out! at the Moody Performance Hall
