To create entertaining, enlightening stage productions that reawaken audiences to the thrill of theater. Our shows will be intellectually challenging and imaginatively rendered, focusing on inventive original works and rarely produced plays by renowned playwrights—all of which celebrate the vitality and immediacy of the live theater experience.

 

“Blackbird fills a definite niche in the landscape of Nashville theater, and not just because it offers productions that are thought-provoking, intelligent, lush, and memorable. It also brings to life lesser-known and new stories that chomp at the bit to be told. Greg and Wes have a keen gift for pulling off works that other companies wouldn‘t dare touch, and we‘re all the richer because of it.”
