In response to rising concerns about COVID-19 and due to events beyond our control, TPAC has closed its venues through April 12 and the engagement of The Color Purple scheduled for March 27-29 has been canceled. While under a Tennessee and federal state of emergency, we have determined that continuing with scheduled performances may be dangerous to public health and safety. Closing our venues is the right action. We look forward to welcoming you back to our venues and the best of Broadway in Nashville when we can safely proceed with regular operations. For our full statement, visit TPAC.ORG/PatronHealth.
