Nashville Rep Reveals 2016-17 Season
Nashville Repertory Theatre will launch its 2016-17 season with Jason Robert Brown's contemporary musical The Last Five Years and will feature the regional debut of Doug Wright'sPosterity, a play about Henrik Ibsen that was developed in the company's Ingram New Works program and which premiered off-Broadway in 2015.
"What should Nashville expect from our 2016-17 season? Laughs and heartbreak and insights and music and pink bunny costumes," says Nashville Rep producing artistic director René D. Copeland.
"A season of shows is a special, unique creation, and I'm always looking for a combination of shows that is compelling and original, yet also provides the things that have made theatre exciting and irresistible for centuries. And those things are all about telling a great story while connecting people, actor to audience and audience member to audience member - the elements that provide the 'Ah-ha!' moments that can change a person. That's what good theatre does. Each play in our upcoming season has been chosen for its power to make you feel something, and maybe think about something in a new way. And best of all, the stories will be told by amazing Nashville theatre artists who rival any that might be seen on Broadway."
Nashville Rep's 2016-17 season will also feature a revival of Michael Fryan's Noises Off andLorraine Hansberry's A Raisin in the Sun. The company's critically acclaimed and audience favorite A Christmas Story will play its regular holiday stand at TPAC's Andrew Johnson Theater for the ninth consecutive season.
