Amid threatening weather forecasts and a winter storm bearing down on the South, more than 150 hardy souls gathered to celebrate live theatre in Nashville and Middle Tennessee with the presentation of the BroadwayWorld.com Nashville Theatre Awards and First Night's Top Ten of Twenty-Ten on Sunday night, January 9. Street Theatre Company's new venue at 1933 Elm Hill Pike was the setting for the event that featured performances by JoAnn Coleman, Ben Van Diepen, Ann Street Kavanaugh, Laura Matula, Michael Kitts and Bakari Jamal King.

Hosted by Jeffrey Ellis, the executive producer and founder of The First Night Nashville Theatre Honors who covers theater in Tennessee for BroadwayWorld.com, the event also featured longtime First Night musical director Jane Kelley Watt, STC artistic director Cathy Sanborn Street, STC music director Rollin Mains, and First Night Red Carpet hosts Jennifer Richmond and Trey Palmer and fashion commentators Cary Street and Macon Kimbrough.
