The October issue of American Theatre magazine (“New Leaders, New Visions”) includes a feature profile of Kevin Moriarty, the Dallas Theater Center’s artistic director. The fact that the story came out just before for the opening of the glass-and-aluminum Wyly certainly doesn’t hurt the impression of Moriarty’s new leadership.
Living in a glass house suits Moriarty, who took on the artistic directorship of the Theater Center in 2007 and has shepherded the institution’s move into the new building. “These glass walls simply say, ‘That’s it. Nothing to hide,'” he attests. “We are part of the city. We are permeable. We are not surrounded in concrete. We are behind glass walls in the middle of downtown, open and available to be the town square, the living room of this community.”
