The AT&T Performing Arts Center has revitalized the Elevator Project in partnership with the city of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs, CultureMap Dallas reports. The Elevator Project, introduced in 2014, gave six small groups a chance to stage theater and dance productions on the Wyly Theatre’s sixth and ninth floors.

After a short hiatus, the project has been expanded to include music, dance, theater, and spoken word, and all but one of the productions will be staged in Hamon Hall at the Winspear Opera House. 

Cabaret artist Denise Lee will be the debut performer as she traces the singing career of Tina Turner. The one-night performance will be Feb. 11. Future productions are already set for the remainder of the season through June.

“This year’s participants are just a taste of the diverse and varied lineups to come,” said President and CEO Doug Curtis in a release.
