COME SEE HOW THE WORLD COULD BE.

Welcome to Hadestown, where a song can change your fate. This acclaimed new show from celebrated singer-songwriter Anaïs Mitchell and innovative director Rachel Chavkin (Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812) is a love story for today… and always. Intertwining two mythic tales — that of young dreamers Orpheus and Eurydice, and that of King Hades and his wife Persephone — Hadestown is a haunting and hopeful theatrical experience that grabs you and never lets go. 

The Broadway production opened to critical acclaim and received numerous awards and nominations. At the 73rd Tony Awards®, Hadestown received 14 nominations (the most for the evening) and won eight of them, including Best Musical and Best Original Score. It also won the 2020 Grammy® Award for Best Musical Theater Album. Performance times in Andrew Jackson Hall are November 1, 7:30 PM; November 2, 7:30 PM; November 3, 7:30 PM; November 4, 8:00 PM; November 5, 2:00 PM; November 5, 08:00 PM; November 6, 1:00 PM; and November 6, 6:30 PM.

STOMP. See what all the noise is about.

STOMP is explosive, provocative, sophisticated, sexy, utterly unique and appeals to audiences of all ages. The international percussion sensation has garnered an armful of awards and rave reviews, and has appeared on numerous national television shows. The eight-member troupe uses everything but conventional percussion instruments – matchboxes, wooden poles, brooms, garbage cans, Zippo lighters, hubcaps – to fill the stage with magnificent rhythms. 

Created by Luke Cresswell and Steve McNicholas, STOMP started as a street performance in the UK in 1991 and grew into a show experienced by more than 24 million people in 50 countries. The performers “make a rhythm out of anything we can get our hands on that makes a sound,” says Cresswell.

The return to Nashville of the percussive hit also brings new surprises, with some sections of the show now updated and restructured and the addition of two new full-scale routines, utilizing props like tractor tire inner tubes and paint cans. As USA Today says, “STOMP finds beautiful noises in the strangest places.” Back once again in TPAC’s Andrew Jackson Hall for One Night Only: Saturday, November 12, 2022, 8:00 PM.
