DFW Theater Critics award a special citation to
Denise Lee and Community Conversation
Every year the DFW Theater Critics gather to nominate, vote for, and debate their favorites from the 2016-17 season. This year they awarded a special citation that reads as follows:
Denise Lee, for starting Community Conversation, following the Dallas Police shootings, as an ongoing, free, inclusive program that gives theater audiences an opportunity to discuss tense issues and create fellowship across different cultures, races, orientations and/or social-economic statuses in a safe, judgment-free setting. The program is held every fourth Monday at the Dallas Children’s Theater, alternates every other month at Circle Theatre and Stage West in Fort Worth and has been offered after Second Thought Theatre’s Straight White Men, Kitchen Dog Theater’s Br’er Cotton and WaterTower Theatre’s Hit the Wall.
I want to thank the D-FW Theater Critics for the honor and acknowledgment of what we are trying to do to make our community a better place.
I share this with all those who work with, attend and share the vision of what we can do through conversation.
Come join us!! We’re changing the world one conversation at a time.
