Upcoming 'Broadway at TPAC' Shows

HCA/TriStar Health Broadway at TPAC Presents

Part of the Plan
September 8-24, 2017 • WORLD PREMIERE

Part of the Plan is a new American musical – a captivating story scored with the music and lyrics of the late, celebrated singer-songwriter Dan Fogelberg. Produced by K-Squared Entertainment in association with the Nashville-based nonprofit Tennessee Performing Arts Center, this show marks TPAC’s first original production. Directed by Tony-nominated Lynne Taylor-Corbett, with book by Kate Atkinson & Karen Harris, this developmental production follows the lives of an adopted boy and the teenaged girl of privilege who was forced to give him up. Part of the Plan takes audiences through the post-World War II boom times, the social and sexual revolution of the 1960s, and the political upheaval of the 1970s, while exploring the theme that everything in life happens for a reason. Seamlessly interweaving the iconic music of an authentic American Troubadour, Part of the Plan brings Fogelberg's music to a new generation who may not know his work, to those who may have forgotten his artistry, and to the many die-hard fans who long to hear his music in all forms.

Contains adult language and some military situations.

Fun Home
October 10-15, 2017

Every once in a while a Broadway musical comes along that surprises, moves, and excites audiences in ways only a truly landmark musical can. The “groundbreaking,”1 “exquisite,”2 and “unforgettable”3 new musical Fun Home was the event of the Broadway season, receiving raves from critics and audiences alike, winning five 2015 Tony Awards including Best Musical and making history along the way. Based on Alison Bechdel’s best-selling graphic memoir, Fun Home introduces us to Alison at three different ages as she explores and unravels the many mysteries of her childhood. A refreshingly honest musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes, “Fun Home is extraordinary, a rare beauty that pumps fresh air into Broadway” (The New York Times).

Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus Live!
October 20, 2017

The Off-Broadway hit comedy Men Are From Mars – Women Are From Venus LIVE!, is a one-man fusion of theatre and stand-up, and is a light-hearted theatrical comedy based on the New York Times #1 best-selling book of the last decade by John Gray. Moving swiftly through a series of vignettes, the show covers everything from dating and marriage to the bedroom.  This hysterical show will have couples elbowing each other all evening as they see themselves on stage. Sexy and fast paced, this show is definitely for adults, but will leave audiences laughing and giggling like little kids! When Mars and Venus collide, the adventures are earth-shatteringly hysterical. It's a great recipe for a date night out: a little storytelling blended with some comedy and a dash of sage wisdom from the book. A delicious evening of entertainment!

Penn & Teller
October 27, 2017

For over 40 years Penn & Teller have defied labels -- and at times physics and good taste -- by redefining the genre of magic and inventing their own very distinct niche in comedy. With sold-out runs on Broadway, world tours, Emmy-winning TV specials, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and hundreds of outrageous TV appearances, comedy’s most enduring team show no signs of slowing down. Currently, they host the hit series Penn & Teller: Fool Us! for The CW Network, on which up-and-comers and magic veterans try to fool Penn & Teller for a chance to star in the duo’s hit Las Vegas stage show.

Not recommended for children under age six.

Wicked
March 28 – April 22, 2018

Season Ticket Holder Week April 3-8

So much happened before Dorothy dropped in.

Wicked, the Broadway sensation, looks at what happened in the Land of Oz… but from a different angle. Long before Dorothy arrives, there is another young woman, born with emerald-green skin – smart, fiery, misunderstood, and possessing an extraordinary talent. When she meets a bubbly blonde who is exceptionally popular, their initial rivalry turns into the unlikeliest of friendships… until the world decides to call one “good,” and the other one “wicked.” From the first electrifying note to the final breathtaking moment, Wicked – the untold true story of the Witches of Oz – transfixes audiences with its wildly inventive story that USA Today cheers is “a complete triumph! An original musical that will make you laugh, cry, and think.”
