Paul Baker dies

Paul Baker, the founding artistic director of the Dallas Theater Center, has died at 98, just a few days before the official opening of the Wyly Theatre, the DTC’s new home. Baker’s daughter, Robyn Baker Flatt, is the founder and artistic director of Dallas Children’s Theater, where a memorial will be held in December.

Current DTC artistic director Kevin Moriarty met with Baker soon after taking the position, and last summer, for the 50th anniversary of the DTC, hosted a panel that included all former artistic directors or their representatives; Baker appeared in a prerecorded message, and Flatt sat on the dais.
