Songbird - 2015 - Off-Broadway Tickets, News, Info & More

Dreams, ambition, love, and heartbreak. SONGBIRD is a striking new show about a fading country star coming home to Nashville. After many years away, Tammy returns to the Honky Tonk that launched her music career to help the son she abandoned launch his own. But with jealousy and self-destruction (along with copious amounts of whiskey) fueling this homecoming, will Tammy's arrival do more harm than good?

SONGBIRD by Michael Kimmel (The Last Goodbye) is based on Anton Chekov's The Seagull, and features a sultry soundtrack filled with heartbreaking ballads and soaring anthems that pay homage to music writer/lyricist Lauren Pritchard's (Spring Awakening) Tennessee roots.

Schedule

Running Time: Two hours and 15 minutes, with one intermission
