Say hello to the glory that is a Tennessee autumn, dear readers. I don’t know about you, but it’s my favorite time for live theatre. There’s just something about the cool air and early darkness that beckons me to see what’s on the boards, and it always seems like every thespian in town is giving it their all!
“Macaberet” at Street Theatre
“This cabaret-style show will make you laugh ‘til it hurts with its outrageous look at the morbid and the macabre. Join your host, Phil Graves, and his cadaverous cohorts as they perform songs such as ‘Marriage is Murder,’ ‘Grave Mistake,’ and ‘Dead End Job’ that deal with love gone bad, obsessions, and strange things that go bump in the night. If you're in the mood for a ‘slightly warped, slightly psychotic and extremely macabre evening of cabaret-style entertainment,’ come enjoy a night of ghoulish fun with ‘deliciously dark songs guaranteed to tickle your funny bone.’”
“Shooting Star” at the Looby
10/5 & 10/6
“In the area premiere of Steven Dietz’s twisty romantic comedy, Mary Tanner Bailey plays Elena Carson, opposite Brandon Boyd as Reed McAllister. Playwright Dietz, in a note accompanying the script, describes his premise this way: ‘We live in a time of ‘virtual reunions’ – employing technology to ‘connect’ us with the past, our history, our youth. In Shooting Star I wanted to write a non-virtual reunion. The real and messy kind. Where the person is standing right there and you can’t leave. Someone who has your secret because they once had your heart.’” Presented by the Tennessee Women’s Theatre Project.
“Sherlock Holmes: The Final Adventure” at Nashville Children’s Theatre
10/5 - 10/7
“At the height of his powers, Sherlock Holmes has seemingly reached the end of his remarkable career when a case of blackmail pits the world's greatest detective and his brave friend, Dr. Watson, in a struggle to the death with Professor James Moriarty, the Napoleon of Crime! This entertaining and thrilling theatrical exploit, written by one of America's finest contemporary playwrights, has everything Holmes fans hope for; danger, mystery, humor, twists, turns and ... romance? The game is afoot!”
