Dee & Charles Wyly Theatre
McCarthy completed this 80,300-square-foot multi-form theatre facility, providing a new state-of-the-art home for the Dallas Theater Center, Dallas Black Dance Theatre and Anita N. Martinez Ballet Folklorico, as well as numerous other performing arts organizations that serve Dallas and the region.
The 12-level building features a groundbreaking design with an unprecedented “stacked,” vertically organized facility that completely rethinks the traditional form of theatre. The Wyly Theatre is a cast-in-place and structural steel framed facility with exterior curtainwall and aluminum cladding.
This facility features a revolutionary approach to theatre design, incorporating state-of-the-art technology and advanced mechanics that will allow artistic directors to rapidly change the stage configuration to a wide variety of seating configurations including proscenium, thrust and flat floor.
McCarthy also constructed one of the AT&T Performing Arts Centers’ underground parking garages, a 222,000-square-foot project that included three levels of underground parking for more than 600 vehicles to conveniently and safely serve all Dallas Arts District venues and patrons.
