Dallas Theater Center presents Centerstage Gala: Staging Joy
Dallas Theater Center's 2021 Centerstage Gala, titled “Staging Joy,” will be the first virtual gala in the theater’s history. The evening will be hosted by Enloe/Rose Artistic Director Kevin Moriarty and Diane and Hal Brierley Resident Acting Company member Liz Mikel, with special appearances from fellow acting company member Christopher Llewyn Ramirez.
"Staging Joy" will feature performances from members of the Brierley Resident Acting Company, along with special appearances from current and former Dallas Theater Center artists. One of those artists will be Liesl Tommy, director of Dallas Theater Center’s 2008 world premiere The Good Negro and the ground-breaking and revolutionary Les Miserables in 2014. A Tony-nominated director, Tommy most recently directed Respect, the upcoming film based on the life of Aretha Franklin starring Jennifer Hudson.
