BWW Review: Shakespeare Theatre Company Presents an OTHELLO for Our Times
by Jeffrey Walker - Mar 4, 2016

Shakespeare Theatre Company proves once again their place as one of the nation's finest classical theatre companies with a new production of OTHELLO.

Critic's Choice: If Life's A Cabaret, Why Aren't You At The Theater?
by Jeffrey Ellis - Mar 10, 2016

Winter's apparently over - it's in the mid-70s, balmy and windy, as we write this - and even before Spring pops up all over, there's an amazing amount of good theater to be found in the Nashville area.
