Les Miserables @ Tennessee Performing Arts Center

Jan 10-15 2023

“Cameron Mackintosh presents the acclaimed production of Boublil and Schönberg’s Tony Award-winning musical phenomenon, LES MISÉRABLES. This brilliant new staging has taken the world by storm and has been hailed as “a reborn dream of a production” (Daily Telegraph). Set against the backdrop of 19th century France, LES MISÉRABLES tells an enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption – a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit. The magnificent score of LES MISÉRABLES includes the songs “I Dreamed a Dream,” “On My Own,” “Bring Him Home,” “One Day More” and many more.”



Menopause the Musical @ Tennessee Performing Arts Center

Jan 13-14 2023


“COME JOIN THE SISTERHOOD! Four women at a lingerie sale have nothing in common but a black lace bra AND memory loss, hot flashes, night sweats, not enough sex, too much sex and more! This hilarious musical parody set to classic tunes from the ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s will have you cheering and dancing in the aisles! See what more than 17 million women and fans worldwide have been laughing about for over 20 years! It’s the Hilarious Celebration of Women and The Change!®”



Llama Llama Red Pajama @ Nashville Children’s Theatre

Jan 19- March 10 2023



“After a long day of adventures at school, Baby Llama can’t wait to put on his red pajamas and go to bed. But where’s Mama Llama to tuck him in and read a bedtime story? Llama Llama Red Pajama, based on the beloved best-selling books by Anne Dewdney, hilariously tracks Baby Llama’s bedtime worries and will warm every Llama and Mama Llama’s heart.”



Murder on the Orient Express: Circle Players @ Looby Theatre

Jan 13-29 2023



“Just after midnight, a snowdrift stops the Orient Express in its tracks. The luxurious train is surprisingly full for the time of year, but by the morning it is one passenger fewer. An American tycoon lies dead in his compartment, stabbed a dozen times, his door locked from the inside. Isolated and with a klller in their midst, detective Hercule Poirot must identify the murderer– in case he or she decides to strike again.”



Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat @ Center for the Arts

Jan 13-19



“The biblical story of Joseph and his coat of many colors comes alive in the musical retelling with Lyrics by Tim Rice and Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber. Joseph — the favorite son of Jacob — is blessed with vivid dreams that foretell the future. Sold into slavery by his jealous brothers, Joseph endures a series of adventures which challenge him to his core. Soon he finds himself belonging to Potiphar, whose wife makes advances toward Joseph and ultimately land him behind bars. However, news of Joseph’s ability to interpret dreams sparks the interest of the hilariously Elvis-like Pharaoh. Soon, Joseph is out of jail and well on his way to second-in-command.

Eventually Joseph’s brothers find themselves unknowingly groveling at the feet of the brother they betrayed. As they fail to even recognize him, Joseph tests their integrity. He ultimately reveals himself and the brothers are reconciled. A truly timeless Old Testament tale, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is set to a multitude of musical genres, spanning from country-western and calypso to bubble-gum pop and rock and roll. This high-energy musical is perfect for all ages!”
