Tennessee Rep announces 2008-2009 season

Tennessee Repertory Theatre has announced its 2008-2009 season of live, professional theatre. Included in the upcoming season are a Tony Award-winning musical, two Pulitzer Prize-winning dramas, two hilarious new comedies and an oft-requested holiday favorite.

“Tennessee Rep is very excited about next season’s shows,” says Producing Artistic Director Rene Copeland. “Each play has something special about it, and taken all together we have a terrific cross-section of offerings.

“Our goal is to provide a feast--a buffet--of good, strong, tasty choices for theatergoers, and we can promise audiences variety in the types of plays but dependable consistency in the high level of quality throughout the season,” Copeland continues.  “This season is a combination of comedy and drama, classic and contemporary, reality and fantasy, horror and silliness, and there’s even a very new play and a revival of an old favorite.  I’m very proud and pleased to be able to bring these plays to Nashville audiences, and if there’s a play on the list Nashvillians are not familiar with, we hope they are inspired to take a chance with us.  Good acting, good sets, good costumes, good scripts, guaranteed.  Tasty choices all!”

Tennessee Rep’s 24th season features the following:

  • Sweeney Todd:  The Demon Barber of Fleet Street by Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler
  • Moonlight and Magnolias by Ron Hutchinson
  • Glengarry Glen Ross by David Mamet
  • Rabbit Hole by David Lindsay-Abaire
  • Darwin in Malibu by Crispin Whittell

Augmenting the above-mentioned shows, which comprise the season subscription package, Tennessee Rep will also offer a fully-mounted show as a Holiday SpecialThe Santaland Diaries by David Sedaris featuring the Middle Tennessee return of Matt Chiorini in the role of Crumpet.

In addition to its season and the holiday special, Tennessee Rep will see some changes and additions for the 2008-2009 season.  Among these is the addition of “First Night” -- a special opening night with a festive party atmosphere. Tuesday night performances have also been added and additional subscription options including subscription options at a lower price.

As with all Tennessee Rep productions, the 2008-2009 season reflects a local product, with local actors, sets that have been designed and constructed locally, and costumes that were designed and crafted locally.

As an LGBTQ+ patient, you should be able to expect the same high-quality care provided to all patients. Unfortunately, this doesn’t necessarily always prove to be the case. There remains a notoriously significant disparity in healthcare outcomes for LGBTQ+ patients, often related to issues with discrimination among providers.

Even when you find a good physician, this doesn’t mean that everyone interacting with your healthcare information will be as respectful or responsible. It is, therefore, important to be vigilant about how your data is handled. You have a right to privacy just as you have an expectation of fair treatment.
