I've seen at least 10 shows from Tennessee Rep and loved every one of them ! The intimacy of the theater and the quality of the actors make for an experience not to be missed !

The Rep is located in TPAC, and most of the shows are in a small basement theatre. And while TPAC has LOTS of great shows to offer, The Rep is the BEST that TPAC has to offer, in my opinion.

We've had season tickets for five years now, and it never fails to disappoint. We don't even check out what the shows are, or if we think we might like them, because Rene Copeland - the producing artistic director - always chooses great shows. Usually thought-provoking, always entertaining, sometimes side-splitting, sometimes tear-generating, we always come away touched in some way.

The theatre is intimate, which really creates a different relationship with the stage and the actors on it. At a recent show, nobody clapped between scenes because we were all just so "in it", so enthralled.

I grew up in the theatre myself, and can tell you that the actors are excellent, excellent, excellent. Their characters are flawless and deep, their timing perfect, their delivery utterly believable.

The sets are not only beautiful, but ingenious in their use of space and transformation between scenes.

The Broadway shows at TPAC are flashy, showy, exciting, and popular, but I prefer The Rep. If there were only one form of live entertainment that I got to choose in Nashville, as a person who lives here, this would be it.

My husband and I LOVE the shows put on at this small but amazing theatre company. Some of our favorite shows we've ever seen are at the Rep.

They were superb in A Christmas Story. I have not seen many of their other productions.

A more intimate setting than the big theaters at TPAC so you can feel more like you are close to the action......oh wait...you really ARE. We love the Rep and have been season subscribers for several years.
