Smart. Riveting. Magical.

These are the words critics and audiences have used to describe the work of Blackbird Theater. Since its founding in 2010, Blackbird has made its mark in Nashville with intellectually adventurous plays, with acclaimed productions of some of the world’s most celebrated writers, such as Shaffer, Stoppard, Shaw, as well as the company’s own original plays and adaptations.

“We believe in the unique power of theater to engage and ultimately enlighten audiences. We believe it can and should explore big ideas, while still being funny, story-driven, magical, and just flat-out entertaining. We believe theatre has the power to stir thought, change minds, and transform lives.”

Entertaining and intelligent, Blackbird shows feature smart scripts, brought to life by some of the region’s most gifted artists and actors.
