Austin Playhouse is happy to announce our TBA this season will be the regional premiere of the new bluegrass musical, Paradise. This new musical is currently running to sold-out houses in L.A. and will stop in Texas for our co-production with Ruskin Theatre Company on its way to New York. We’re so excited to play a part in the development of this wonderful show and look forward to introducing it to Austin audiences!
Coming off of a sold out run in Los Angeles, Paradise, a sinfully divine bluegrass comedy, brings its irreverent, heart-warming, toe-tapping show to Austin Playhouse before heading across the country. This down-on-their-luck Southern coal mining town gets a big dose of reality when a charismatic Preacher, saucy Stripper, and greedy Hollywood production company show up to try to create their own version of the American Dream.
A show destined to take the country by storm...highly entertaining” - Broadway World
