Direct from Broadway, Mean Girls is the hilarious hit musical from an award-winning creative team, including book writer Tina Fey (30 Rock), composer Jeff Richmond (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), lyricist Nell Benjamin (Legally Blonde) and director Casey Nicholaw (The Book of Mormon).

Cady Heron may have grown up on an African savanna, but nothing prepared her for the vicious ways of her strange new home: suburban Illinois. Soon, this naïve newbie falls prey to a trio of lionized frenemies led by the charming but ruthless Regina George. But when Cady devises a plan to end Regina’s reign, she learns the hard way that you can’t cross a Queen Bee without getting stung.

New York Magazine cheers, “Mean Girls delivers with immense energy, a wicked sense of humor and joyful inside-jokery.” USA Today says, “We’ll let you in on a little secret, because we’re such good friends: Get Your Tickets Now!”

Winner of the 2012 Tony Awards for best score and best choreography, Disney’s “Newsies” is a high-energy explosion of song and dance. Set in New York at the turn of the century, it is the rousing tale of Jack, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a ragged band of teen-aged “newsies,” who dreams of a better life far from the hardship of the streets. But when publishing titans Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, the David-versus-Goliath struggle begins, and Jack finds a cause to fight for and rallies newsies from across the city to strike for what’s right.

She was a girl from Boston with a voice from heaven, who shot through the stars from gospel choir to dance floor diva. But what the world didn’t know was how Donna Summer risked it all to break through barriers, becoming the icon of an era and the inspiration for every music diva who followed. With a score featuring more than 20 of Summer’s classic hits, including “Love to Love You Baby,” “Bad Girls,” and “Hot Stuff,” this electric experience is a moving tribute to the voice of a generation.

Direct from Broadway, the 2019 Tony® nominated Best Play and Pulitzer Prize finalist, What the Constitution Means to Me, by famed writer Heidi Schreck, arrives in Nashville for a strictly limited engagement. This boundary-breaking play breathes new life into our Constitution and imagines how it will shape the next generation of Americans.

Schreck’s timely and galvanizing play, directed by Oliver Butler, became a sensation off-Broadway last fall before transferring to Broadway where it received two Tony Award® nominations among countless other accolades. See the play The New York Times hails as “not just the best play on Broadway, but also the most important.”

Ralphie’s back! Nashville Repertory Theatre presents the ninth annual A Christmas Story, adapted by Philip Grecian, based on the motion picture by Jean Shepherd, Leigh Brown and Bob Clark. Running Nov 25 – Dec 22, this holiday tradition gives fans what they want – a hilarious, interactive winter treat. With a Red Ryder BB Gun, a ballet tribute to an iconic Leg Lamp, gallons of Ovaltine and a child with a bar of Lifebuoy in his mouth; this show more than delivers on its promise of laughs and heart-warming charm. The Bumpus hounds will be waiting for you. 

This performance will be interpreted in American Sign Language.  Tickets for patrons who use ASL and their companions are on hold through December 1, 2017. 

Regular priced tickets start at $45; child tickets are $25 (with the purchase of a regular priced ticket). To purchase seats for the interpreted performance, use the promo code TPACTICKET online at www.tpac.org or at the TPAC box office, 505 Deaderick Street, Nashville.

The Tennessee Performing Arts Center will provide American Sign Language and Open Captioning for the award-winning musical comedy A Gentleman’s Guide To Love And Murder on  Sunday, January 29, 2017 at 1:00 p.m. Tickets for $55 are now on hold in Jackson Hall for patrons who wish to take advantage of this special offer of $20 off.  Please buy your tickets by Friday, January 6 to receive the discount.

As some of you may be aware, TPAC has invested in new assisted listening equipment, including receivers.  If you want to use amplification, you are invited to bring your own headsets to plug into these new receivers, which are on lanyards worn around the neck. You also have the option of using the headsets provided by TPAC.

Winner of the 2014 Tony Award for Best Musical, among other honors, A Gentleman’s Guide To Love And Murder tells the fast-moving story of the dashing and dastardly Monty Navarro. A distant heir to a family fortune, he sets out to jump the line of succession by eliminating the eight pesky relatives who stand in his way. All the while, Monty has to juggle his mistress, his fiancée, and the constant threat of landing behind bars. Of course, it will all be worth it if he can slay his way to his inheritance… and be done in time for tea.  Part of the fun of the show is that Monty’s eight relatives—both male and female—are all played by the same actor, who sometimes switches characters and costumes in less than 20 seconds offstage. 

Rave reviews of the show include this from a most gentlemanly NPR critic who said he’d “Never laughed so hard at a Broadway musical.” The Chicago Sun Times wrote that the touring production is “irresistible theatrical confection… Designer Alexander Dodge’s stage-within-a-stage set (winningly animated by Aaron Rhyne’s projections) is pure, ever-shifting eye candy of the highest order. And were Lindo Cho’s ravishing costumes put on sale in the lobby, every woman in the audience would buy them.”

Running time is 2 hours and 20 minutes, including one 15-minute intermission.

Again, tickets in the lower orchestra level are $55 each, a $20 discount.  They are on hold through Friday, January 6, for patrons who use ASL and/or open captioning and their companions. Note that facility fees are not charged on purchases at the TPAC Box Office, open Monday through Friday, from 10 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (providing your promo code at time of purchase). Whatever the method, please buy your tickets by January 6 to take advantage of this special discount offer.
