Nashville in Harmony brings New York City to Music City with ‘Bravo! Broadway’

Whether you’ve practiced the “Time Warp” at home over the last three decades or just enjoyed “Seasons of Love” from Rent on repeat since the late 90s, if you love the idea of a night on the town Broadway style, then mark September 28 on your calendar.

Nashville in Harmony brings New York City to Music City, the Tennessee Performing Arts Center (TPAC) to be more exact, with the first show in their TENsational 10th anniversary season.

This Broadway revue will include numbers from some of the most famous musicals in show history such as: “Over the Rainbow” from The Wizard of Oz, “Little Shop of Horrors,” “For Good” from Wicked, “Footloose” and much more. The special evening will also feature special guest Martha Wilkinson, Blake Whyte and dance performances by The Nashville Swing Dance Foundation.

Nashville’s own Martha Wilkinson brings over 25 years of professional experience to Bravo! Broadway. Wilkinson, who serves as the Artistic Director for Chaffin’s Barn Dinner Theatre, is a nine-time First Night award-winning actress for her work in musical theatre. Performing in and directing over 100 shows, Wilkinson is best known for roles such as Mrs. Lovett in Sweeny Todd and her work in The 39 Steps.

Bravo! Broadway will also feature New York musician, Blake Whyte. Whyte just released his much anticipated debut album, More Like Myself, co-produced by Jeffery Lee Campbell (Sting), and is known for his roles in Wicked and Mamma Mia.

Whyte is the perfect complement to Nashville in Harmony’s mission. “I believe we are all connected through the common language of music and that its ability to inspire and heal are limitless,” said Whyte. His personal philosophy embodies everything in which Nashville in Harmony strives for. The melding of these two talents (and philosophies) serve to enhance the showcase of the very best that Broadway and Nashville have to offer.

Bravo! Broadway is the first of four performances for NiH’s celebratory TENsational series. NiH has been creating a way to build bridges of understanding between the LGBT community and the Nashville community at large since 2003. Marketing chair Julie Reliford summed up their ten year mission best, “The idea was to intentionally form a chorus in which lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered people could stand side by side with their straight allies and raise their voices in songs of unity, love, and support.”

Nashville in Harmony strives to model within the chorus, the ideals they wish to see in society—that everyone is not only accepted but embraced and valued for exactly who they are. So whether you’re a Broadway lead or a chorus gal, Nashville in Harmony hopes that you’ll come out and sing with them at TPAC on September 28.

When I started medical transition at 20 years old, it was very difficult to get the care I needed for hormone replacement therapy because there are very few providers trained in starting hormones for trans people, even though it’s very similar to the hormones that we prescribe to women in menopause or cisgender men with low testosterone.

I hope more providers get trained in LGBTQ+ healthcare, so they can support patients along their individual gender journey, and provide the info needed to make informed decisions about their body. I’ve personally seen my trans patients find hope and experience a better quality of life through hormone replacement therapy.
