Nashville Repertory Theatre announces 35th Season

Nashville Rep's 35th Season Announcement

Our friends at Nashville Repertory Theatre announced the lineup of their 35th Season and needless to say we cannot wait! On the heels of a year that critics called their best season ever, Nashville Repertory Theatre celebrated the announcement of their 2019-20 Season on April 4 at Cabana restaurant in Hillsboro Village. Artistic Director René D. Copeland presented the theatre’s selection of 6 shows to applause and cheers throughout the crowd.

The upcoming season kicks off with the hilarious Tony Award-winning musical satire, Urinetown The Musical. Catchy, witty, and comparable to last fall’s sold out production of Avenue Q, Urinetown the Musical promises audiences a wickedly funny, fast-paced, and sharply intelligent comedic romp.

The next show of the season is Dominque Morisseau’s Pipeline. A mother’s hopes for her son clash with an educational system rigged against him in this riveting and deeply moving new work. Referring to the school-to-prison pipeline, this show brings an urgent conversation powerfully to the fore.

Next in the season is a special one-weekend-only presentation of Every Brilliant Thing. Written by Duncan Macmillan and Jonny Donahoe, this show asks “What makes life brilliant?” Audiences will get answers both simple and profound in this intimate, heart-warming, one-of-a-kind theatre experience.

To celebrate the holidays, Nashville Rep will present Patrick Barlow’s A Christmas Carol from Thanksgiving until Christmas! A true celebration of theatre and the holiday season, Patrick Barlow’s A Christmas Carol is a magnificent twist on Charles Dickens’ timeless story of redemption.

Finally, Nashville Rep will close their 35th Season the same way they started their first: in TPAC’s Polk Theater with Tennessee Williams. one of the greatest works of American Theatre ever produced, A Streetcar Named Desire is the gritty New Orleans drama that won Tennessee Williams his Pulitzer Prize, and it will be the final production of Nashville Rep’s 35th Season.

Season tickets go on sale Monday, April 8. Information about the productions, open call auditions, The Nashville Rep Conservatory, Season Ticket packages, and more can be found at NashvilleRep.org
