Nashville theatre hits its stride
“There’s a problem with Nashville’s theatre scene, and the whole industry knows it,” says Blackbird Theater managing director Greg Greene, “It’s the fact that the majority of Nashvillians aren’t aware how good local theatre has become in the last few years. The theatre community is more energized, it’s drawing better talent, and it’s producing braver shows than ever before.
“Blackbird wants to invite Nashvillians back to the theatre by offering 200 free tickets to our production of Oleanna, by Pulitzer-winning playwright and filmmaker David Mamet. If you haven’t seen a locally-produced play in the last 3 years, we have two free tickets for you to a great show. Oleanna is short, sinewy, and it’s definitely for mature audiences.
“Our production is just one example of what Nashville theatre has to offer, but with Mamet’s incendiary script in the hands of David Compton and Jennifer Richmond – two of the region’s best actors – we think our new guests will be surprised at how engaging and exhilarating theatre can be. Best of all, it costs nothing – the only risk is that you may want more.”
