TPAC announces 2018-19 Broadway Season lineup

The Tennessee Performing Arts Center revealed this week its selections for the 2018-19 Broadway Season. The biggest news, of course, was that the Broadway smash Hamilton is coming to town next season, in 2019-20, but the upcoming season isn't anything to sneeze at.

“We’re so fortunate to have seven titles on our next Broadway season that are currently doing so well on Broadway in New York,” said Kathleen O’Brien, TPAC’s president and chief executive officer. “That says a lot about how robust the Broadway pipeline is and how successful we’ve been in securing the newest, hottest shows. Nashville is the home to world famous music and art, and we’re thrilled to bring a season of diverse, fresh and accessible titles as well as classic revivals and fan favorites for our patrons to explore and enjoy.”

Season tickets and group tickets are now available with an eight-show season package for the 2018-19 HCA/Tri-Star Health Broadway at TPAC series starting at $308. Season ticket holders get the best seats at the best prices and receive exclusive benefits including free ticket exchange, lower ticket processing fees, pre-sale offers and more. Season tickets are currently available now at Single tickets are available 10-12 weeks before the show’s engagement.

WhistlePig + Alfa Romeo F1

SHOREHAM, VT (September 13, 2023) — WhistlePig Whiskey, the leaders in independent craft whiskey, and Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake are waving the checkered flag on a legend-worthy release that’s taking whiskey to G-Force levels. The Limited Edition PiggyBack Legends Series: Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake Barrel is a high Rye Whiskey selected by the Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake drivers, with barrels trialed in their wind tunnel to ensure a thrilling taste in every sip.

The third iteration in WhistlePig’s Single Barrel PiggyBack Legends Series, the Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake Barrel is bottled at 96.77 proof, a nod to Valtteri Bottas’ racing number, 77, and the precision of racing. Inspired by Zhou Guanyu, the first Chinese F1 driver, this Rye Whiskey is finished with lychee and oolong tea. Herbal and floral notes of the oolong tea complement the herbaceous notes of WhistlePig’s signature PiggyBack 100% Rye, rounded out with a juicy tropical fruit finish and a touch of spice.
