Wyly Studio Theatre



In light of public health concerns surrounding COVID-19 and in response to the City of Dallas’ emergency declaration on March 12, the AT&T Performing Arts Center performances and public events are canceled through March 19th.

This includes canceling this weekend’s performances of Playwrights in the Newsroom. Ticket holders can exchange these for a future Elevator Project performance, receive a credit to their Center account, request a refund or donate their tickets, which will support the AT&T Performing Arts Center and its nonprofit mission during this challenging period. Call the box office at 214-880-0202 or e-mail boxoffice@attpac.org for more information.

Our highest priority is the health and safety of our patrons, artists, volunteers, and staff. We are continuing to evaluate the situation and closely monitor updates and will follow any official mandates and recommendations from our public health experts. The most up-to-date status for each event will be available on our website at ATTPAC.org, on Facebook at ATTPAC, and on Instagram at ATTPAC.

We look forward to enjoying live performances with you again soon!

Playwrights in the Newsroom is an immersive, theatrical experience orchestrated by two playwrights who’ve spent hundreds of hours shadowing The Dallas Morning News. Playwrights Brigham Mosley and Janielle Kastner are fairly literate people (or so they thought) who, until recently, got their news from Buzzfeed and/or Twitter. When given the opportunity to immerse themselves in the newsroom at The Dallas Morning News to write a play about journalism, these fiction-writing story-embellishers are faced with a new mandate: seek the truth and report it. Their theatrical mission is simple: Figure out what journalism is, why it matters, who we trust to tell us What Happened, and also, along the way, maybe save democracy. No sweat!


Local playwright Matt Lyle sits down with Brigham Mosley and Janielle Kastner, creators and stars of “Playwrights In The Newsroom” to discuss the creative process for their new work.
