When the national tour of Once on This Island kicked off in Nashville, there were a few lucky enough to immerse themselves in the Tony Award-winning revival’s unique on-stage seating, literally putting their toes in the sand.
When you walk into TPAC’s Jackson Hall Oct. 15-20 for the Tony Award-winning revival of Once on This Island, you may wonder why you feel transported to a faraway land just ravaged by a storm. There is water, garbage, a huge tractor trailer, and sand that blankets the stage. What was the inspiration behind this realistic and immersive set design?
The cast for the National Tour of Once on This Island has been announced! The musical will officially kick off the national tour right here in Nashville October […]
Not every Broadway conductor conducts their orchestra with a toothbrush. But since SpongeBob The Musical — which floats into TPAC Nov. 5-10 — isn’t your average musical, Patrick Hoagland is not your average conductor.
The critically acclaimed, award-winning The SpongeBob Musical will make its Nashville debut at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center’s Jackson Hall Nov. 5-10. “Wonders pour from the […]
Are you ready, kids? I said, are you ready?! After 11 seasons, two movies, and more than $13 billion in merchandising revenue, the animated residents of Bikini Bottom have left their underwater dwellings to conquer the Broadway stage.
Becoming a cat is no easy feat, especially when you’re one of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s. Nobody knows this better than Timothy Gulan, who plays three “jellicle” cats in the national tour.
“So many millions of people have a love affair with this show; I feel it is important to give them what they remember,” says Andy Blankenbuehler, who choreographed the first Broadway revival of the 1980 musical phenomenon by Andrew Lloyd Webber.
There’s one musical that certainly has more than nine lives. One of the biggest hits in theatrical history, CATS, returns to Nashville for its ninth time at TPAC Nov.19-24.
The innovative educational program that debuted at Hamilton on Broadway will continue in Nashville on Thursday, January 16, when 2,400 students and teachers from 38 high schools attend the matinee performance of the musical at TPAC.
The musical has done the seemingly impossible — made both theater and history cool to high schoolers.
With this decade-defining show running at TPAC through Jan. 19, we thought we’d take a look at the actors who started it all.
We all remember Cynthia Erivo’s emotional, Tony Award-winning performance as Celie in the 2016 Broadway revival of The Color Purple, an uplifting story about the triumph of the […]
Excitement has been building for the last several months, as Nashville prepares for the arrival of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s musical sensation “Hamilton.” But as Tennessee Performing Arts […]

Many shows impose ticket limits to allow as many people as possible to have equal access to seats. This is done as a deterrent to third party vendors, i.e. scalpers, who may purchase large blocks of seats and then resell them online at an inflated cost. The term “household” refers to any shared information on one or more accounts. This includes, but may not be limited to matching names, mailing and billing addresses, email addresses, phone numbers and credit card numbers. Any households that purchase more than the allowed number of tickets may have their order(s) refunded without notice.
