THE NEW THEATRE
 

The design for this theater was first conceived for the New Theatre for Woodstock, New York (1931 Project). In 1938 Wright designed the Pfeiffer Chapel (S.251) at the Florida Southern College and utilized the original Woodstock floor plan. In 1949 the "New Theatre" was revived again in Hartford, Connecticut, but was never executed. The concept for the "New Theatre for Woodstock" was finally executed in Dallas and the Dallas Theater Center opened with registration and classes on September 9, 1959 and its first production on December 27, 1959.

Description: "The Turning Point... Most original architect of our century is the U. S. - and perhaps the world - is scholarly Frank Lloyd Wright. He remembers now, at the age of 80, how he stumbled into new forms of building in a moment of passion rather than after years of reflection. In his earliest years, Wright was as conservative an architect as anyone who ever placed a classic frieze over the doorway of a public library. But burning within him was the knowledge that some day his mind would outdistance those of his fellows... Includes one photograph of Frank Lloyd Wright pointing to a photograph on an easel. The large photograph is of a model of the "New Theatre." Hartford, Connecticut. The design for this theater was first conceived for the New Theatre for Woodstock, New York (1931 Project). In 1938 Wright designed the Pfeiffer Chapel (S.251) at the Florida Southern College and utilized the original Woodstock floor plan. In 1949 the "New Theatre" was revived again in Hartford, Connecticut, but was never executed. The photographed of the New Theater model appears to have been taken at Taliesin, Spring Green.

Title: The Dallas Theater Center, An Idea That Was Big Enough (Soft Cover) (Published by the Dallas Theater Center, Dallas, Texas)

Author: Cory, Joyce Burke

Description: Chapter V. The Architect. "And from the earth there rose a man, Who grew to shape the sunlight in his hands." Iovanna Lloyd Wright. It should not be necessary to review the life of a man as famous as Frank Lloyd Wright, but the factors that influence him in developing the idea and ideals which shaped his architecture are pertinent to the understanding of the work of art which was to be called the Dallas Theater Center. It is especially relevant that a clear picture of Mr. Wright’s theory of "organic architecture," how it developed, and how he put it into practice, be formed at this point to facilitate the understanding of later discussions of the technical aspect of the building. Therefore, only the part of his early life that has to do with his development as an architect will be discussed... Inscribed by the author. Includes many photographs of Frank Lloyd Wright, the Dallas Theater Center, plans, drawings, construction and the completed building. (First Edition)
