Nashville Rep Announces 2019-20 Season

The lineup includes new works, a holiday staple, and a Tony Award-winning musical comedy.

NASHVILLE: Nashville Repertory Theatre has announced their 35th season featuring a musical favorite, a world premiere, and a holiday special.

The season will kick off with Urinetown the Musical (Sept. 14-29), with music and lyrics by Mark Hollmann and book and lyrics by Greg Kotis. A town is slammed with a water shortage crisis, leading the government to interfere with citizen bathroom use.

Up next is Pipeline (Oct. 19-Nov. 3) by Dominique Morisseau, about a mother’s dream for her son and the education system inherently set against him.

After that will be Every Brilliant Thing (Nov.8-10), by Duncan Macmillan and Johnny Donahoe. This piece attempts to provide thought-provoking answers to an age-old question: What makes life so brilliant?

Nashville Rep will celebrate the holiday season with A Christmas Carol (Nov. 29-Dec. 22), by Patrick Barlow. This production delivers an imaginative twist based on the classic holiday tale by Charles Dickens.

Following will be This Red Planet (Feb. 8-23, 2020), by Nate Eppler, about a former U.S. President who shifts career paths to pursue art.

The season will close with A Streetcar Named Desire (Mar. 27- Apr. 5, 2020), by Tennessee Williams, about a school teacher who leaves small-town Mississippi to live in New Orleans with her sister and her husband.

Nashville Rep, founded in 1985, strives to produce high quality productions of classic and contemporary work for the greater Nashville area.
