Gypsy now playing the Mainstage through Sept. 5

Gypsy, The Musical

Everything's coming up roses on the Mainstage with the backstage musical, Gypsy!

One of the greatest American musicals of all time, Gypsy stars Weslie Webster as Rose, a stage mother who puts today's "Dance Moms" to shame as she steamrolls everyone in her way to turn her daughters into child stars.

DeAnna Etchison is Rose's daughter Louise, and Elizabeth Wyld is Louise's sister June.

Playhouse favorite Jason Ross is Rose’s love interest, Herbie.

Directed by Britt Hancock and choreographed by Leila Nelson, Gypsy promises to be an unforgettable, electrifying show!

Adults: $26
Seniors: $25
Groups: $24
Students: $13

Co-sponsored by Dirk C. Davidson, MD / Tennessee Oncology, and Fairfield Glade Resort.

It Ain't Nothin' But The Blues plays through Oct. 25

It Ain't Nothin But the Blues

It Ain’t Nothin' But The Blues is not only about the Blues, it's a sure cure for the Blues," explains the show's director/choreographer Harry Bryce (Ain’t Misbehavin', Crowns, Dreamgirls).

Much more than just a musical revue, It Ain’t Nothin' But The Blues lets the audience discover the history of the Blues—from African roots and delta spirituals—and explores the regions of our country that provided the most fertile soil for this uniquely American art form to flourish.

The Playhouse production is set in a gallery filled with paintings of the Blues scene, and as the paintings come to life, so do the vibrant stories contained in these memorable songs.
