Broadway Dallas ceases to amaze patrons

The Broadway Dallas musical season recently kicked off at Fair Park. However, I am no longer going. Why? Because Broadway Dallas decided to ignore longtime subscribers who don’t use online sources to renew season tickets. This year, Broadway Dallas made advertisements online, on TV and within the Dallas Morning News for patrons to renew their season tickets.

But what if you’re a patron who doesn’t have access to these services? This is my situation. Broadway Dallas was supposed to send out notices in the mail to renew season tickets, yet these letters did not come as advertised.

Live theater returns to Richland with ‘Antigone’

Haley Aguayo, Staff Writer | May 17, 2022

Tragedy has struck at Richland campus, in a theatrical sense, as the drama department puts on its rendition of the Greek tragedy “Antigone.”

It’s the first play to grace the stage in Fannin Hall on April 27, since the two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the closing of campus buildings.

“The last thing you can do during a pandemic that is spread the way this one is, is be in a small room yelling at each other and spraying [germs],” said director Gregory Lush. “Theater is about conflict, so its heightened emotional states consist of almost always volume and projection. It was just impossible. The school had just shut down. It wouldn’t have been possible.”
