Review: Nashville Story Garden's U.S. Premiere of Lucy Kirkwood's THE WELKIN Will Hav Photo Review: Nashville Story Garden's U.S. Premiere of Lucy Kirkwood's THE WELKIN Will Have Audiences Talking

Nothing engages the theaterati in Nashville and the surrounding provinces as the production of an eagerly anticipated new play no one’s done before in these parts, but about which we’ve read glowing reviews. The very promise of something new to energize the cultural zeitgeist – particularly under the aegis of Nashville Story Garden (a creative collective whose work always generates major buzz); something new and unseen from across the pond which will provide a showcase for the remarkable talents of some of the region’s most respected actors – is virtually guaranteed to be a “must-see” for a theater-going public more accustomed to titles with which they are already quite often overly familiar.

For Darya, a 42-year-old Polish emigre eking out a meager and bleak existence in New Jersey, life in America seems far less promising than she may have considered at the outset of her journey. But in Martyna Majok's exquisitely crafted and beautifully written play - Ironbound - which ends its all-too-brief Nashville run tonight, there is a glimmer (a very faint one, truth be told, but a glimmer nonetheless) of hope that may augur a brighter future ahead.

The Music Of Les Six Comes to Town Stages Photo The Music Of Les Six Comes to Town Stages
by Stephi Wild - Sep 1, 2018

Classical music has gotten a bad rap. Shushing, rustling candy wrappers, stuck in a row of uncomfortable chairs trying not to fall asleep while waiting for intermission to cough or use the bathroom. Forget all of it. That's not how this music was meant to be performed, so we're not gonna do it. Get up, get a drink whenever you want. Cough, slurp, chat as much as you please.
