Photo Flash: Inside Rehearsal for Kristian Bush's New Musical TROUBADOUR at Alliance Theatre

Atlanta's Tony Award winning ALLIANCE THEATRE presents the world premiere musical, Troubadour, by playwright Janece Shaffer (The Geller Girls, Broke) with original music by Grammy Award-winning recording artist Kristian Bush. Set in 1950s Nashville, Troubadour is a romantic comedy about an unlikely group of friends whose unconventional style changes the course of country music. Troubadour is directed by the Alliance's Jennings Hertz Artistic Director Susan V. Booth (One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, The Geller Girl) and runs on the Alliance Stage from January 18 - February 12, 2017. BroadwayWorld has a peek inside the first rehearsal below!

The cast includes Atlanta-based actor Andrew Benator (Disgraced, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest); Nashville-based singer-songwriter and actor Sylvie Davidson; country music singer-songwriter, musician, and music producer Radney Foster; Atlanta-based actor and singer-songwriter Rob Lawhon (Songs to Grow On, Ghost Brothers of Darkland County); Atlanta-based actor Bethany Anne Lind (One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Edward Foote), and Atlanta-based singer-songwriter and finalist of the NBC hit television series "The Voice," Zach Seabaugh.

Troubadour will include approximately 16 original songs by Atlanta-based singer-songwriter Kristian Bush, whose career as a solo artist (2015's critically-acclaimed Southern Gravity) as well as one-half of beloved duos Billy Pilgrim and Sugarland has spanned more than two decades.

The creative team for Troubadour includes Music Director Brandon Bush, Sound Designer Clay Benning, Costume Designer Lex Liang, Tony Award-winning Set Designer Todd Rosenthal, and Lighting Designer Ken Yunker.
