“The Quality of London in Dallas”
Review of WaterTower Theatre

WaterTower Theatre
Ranked #5 of 18 things to do in Addison
Attraction details
Reviewed July 17, 2014

This theater consistently puts on great presentations with great acting. Some of the presentations have really been world class. The theater itself is very modern yet extremely comfortable From parking to the stage this place is really top notch. If you are into theater in the Dallas Forth Worth area this is the best by far. You can pay tons more for sub par performances elsewhere and put up with lots of driving hassles parking safety issues or you can have a wonderful performance at WTT . We love it.

My wife and I enjoy visiting Watertower. It is in the great Addison (next to the airport) area with access to many restaurants. Combine that with live theater and you have a great combination. Terry Martin and company put on a wonderful variety of shows. As others have said, it is an intimate theater ( not a bad seat in the house, and a fully configurable seating arrangement for each play) with great local actors that present very professional theater. We have been often for musicals, dramas and comedies. We are never disappointed. Easy to park, easy to get to and affordable. Next time you are thinking about a "movie" - consider live theater. It is a treat.

Great place for an intimate theater experience. The theater has a flexible performance space which is rearranged as the performance merits. Recently we enjoyed "Spunk". The seating had been arranged so a part of the audience sat along the sides of the stage instead of just facing it. The actors were, literally, three feet away. If you want a true theater experience with no barrier between the actor and yourself this is the place to go.

Tip: Look for some of the excellent before or after theater dining opportunities. We enjoy both Antonio's (killer souffles) and Astoria (lighter fare with a good selection of beers/wines).

This is an area theater that is very cozy and your seating will generally be very close to the show. We used to go quite often however some of the shows lacked quality and we now attend less often.You need to check the reviews of the shows as well as reviewing the show’s content. It is adjacent to our neighborhood and we have never had a problem getting tickets even at the last minute. Prices are very reasonable compared to big theaters and although season tickets are offered at a good price we always find a couple of shows not to our taste so we stick with individual tickets. Parking is not all that difficult around the theater.

We have been season ticket holders for several years and love this theatre. If you are in town and a production is in season and you love plays, this is an excellent venue to catch a high quality production at a reasonable price. Many of the actors are well-known in the Dallas area and we just love to see how they use the space for each new production. There is good parking, great restaurants nearby and a park to stretch your legs after the show.

Some of the options for rating his attraction ask about food. Well, there are snacks (candy), beer, wine and water. Only water can be taken into WaterTower Theatre. That's OK. Intermission is long enough to gulp down some wine if you get a jump on people taking a break.

All in all, I have enjoyed all of the plays I have seen at WTT.
