Broadway Dallas News | NOVEMBER 2023

Posted on November 30th, 2023

Dear Friends,

It’s that time of year again…a time for gratitude and a time to count your blessings.

I am grateful for the amazing team at Broadway Dallas, who help to take care of our wonderful Music Hall, who put up and run all of the amazing shows that come to our theater, who organize and implement our incredible education and community engagement programs, who raise the money to fund those programs, and who spread the word about our shows. And here’s a special shout out to our front of house, security and box office teams who keep our patrons informed, safe and comfortable.

And of course, I’m very grateful to you: our fans, season subscribers, members and donors – for spending your time with us, for supporting us through the years, and for sharing our love of the magic of Broadway.

Happy Holidays! And see you in the lobby!
