Eddie George in THE WHIPPING MAN Highlights Tennessee Rep's 30th Anniversary Season; Casting Announced!

Tennessee Repertory Theatre has worked with Pulitzer Prize-winners, Tony Award-winners, and Oscar Award-winners (largely through its burgeoning Ingram New Works Project). And now Nashville's flagship professional theatre can add a Heisman Trophy-winner to that list: Eddie George. The former Tennessee Titan will headline the February production of The Whipping Man.

In addition to George, Tennessee Rep will welcome an array of professional actors making their Tennessee Rep stage debuts. The season features a healthy mix of new faces and familiar faces, a fitting way to celebrate the theatre's 30th anniversary.

"Nashville is fortunate to have a vibrant theatre community, with really wonderful professional actors who live here," says Tennessee Rep Producing Artistic Director René D. Copeland. "When casting, I always feel an embarrassment of riches when I see the choices before me. I know Nashville appreciates that and enjoys the quality of performers who appear on our stage. It's another exciting year in the Nashville theatre world, and the casts for 2014-15 season pay tribute to Tennessee Rep's 30 years, both by bringing back familiar faces and welcoming new ones."
