Concierge.com's insider take:

A night at the theater has become an increasingly familiar pastime in Dallas and Fort Worth. The major regional theater, the Dallas Theater Center, performs standards and new work in the only theater designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, a challenging, fluidly organic space built in 1959. Dallas institution Theatre Three offers dependable mainstream productions with the best local talent—as well as proximity to fine dining in the surrounding Quadrangle. For new and experimental work, there's the well established but perennially edgy Undermain Theatre in Deep Ellum, a cozy basement venue (right beneath Main Street) noted for first-rate productions of outré material (think rock opera). In Fort Worth, Circle Theatre also works out of a basement—beneath a former department store in Sundance Square—staging standards alongside challenging contemporary works. Jubilee Theatre )is another Sundance Square fixture, featuring African-American performers, writers, and directors. But the real star of Fort Worth's theater scene is Hip Pocket Theater, revered for its wildly inventive outdoor staging—often using mime, puppets, and projections—of zany, commedia dell'arte–inspired scripts written or adapted by founder Johnny Simons. Under-the-stars productions at the company's parklike wooded amphitheater (they call it "theater in the rough") are eclectic, spanning drama, riffs on classic literature, and send-ups of science-fiction B movies.
