Nashville Rep's Season-Opening 9 to 5: The Musical Kicks Off An Eagerly Anticipated Slate of Theater
by Jeffrey Ellis - September 24, 2023

Baker’s superb direction brings all the various moving parts of this huge production together to deliver a gratifyingly heartfelt paean to the millions of working women (and men) who inspired the screenplay and musical book by Patricia Resnick. Baker’s vision for the piece, in concert with her team of collaborators, delivers a production of 9 to 5: The Musical that is delightfully fresh and new, eschewing the tendency of some directors to offer a rehash of what’s already been seen on Broadway, on tour or in regional theater.

Nashville Children's Theatre's STRONG INSIDE Offers Emotional View of the Segregated South
by Jeffrey Ellis - September 23, 2023

Thanks to Andrew Maraniss’ best-selling book Strong Inside – adapted for the stage by Tyrone L.

Founded in 1931 by members of the Junior League of Nashville, there can be no denying that NCT, like its hometown itself and one of its favorite sons (Wallace), has been reflective of the growing diversity of its people and the evolution of its cultural and educational institutions.

Student Blog: Hard Work Becomes Habit!
by Student Blogger: Ruby Wolter - September 19, 2023

Musical theater is a challenging thing to “grade”. There aren’t many classes with essays that could be plagiarized or tests where you could choose to cheat.
