It looks to be an interesting season coming up. My favorite musical of all time is up (Sound of Music!), along with a couple I've been interested to see for a while now (Driving Miss Daisy, and See Rock City). Also a little note: after doing some amazing research on the productions I wasn't as familiar with, I am excited for this coming year, including Bob Gunton in Walking on Water (if you didn't know, Mr. Gunton has been in several Broadway productions, including playing Juan Peron in the original Evita, and playing Sweeny Todd in the 1989-90 revival, both of which earned him Tony nominations).

You can read the release on's Nashville page HERE.

If you're interested in purchasing season tickets, you can call the Cumberland County Playhouse at 931-484-5000. Individual tickets can be purchased by calling or by visiting the website.

Let me know what you're most excited for this season.


  1. Hmmm... well I'm excited about directing Driving Miss Daisy! And I'm VERY eager to learn what the final two shows of the season will be (yes, I know the titles being considered), as one of them may be my other directing project for the year. :)

  2. I love the music of "TBA"!!!!

    We should totally write a musical called "TBA" so it'll throw off announcements like this. :)

  3. Kind of like [Title of Show], right Mike? :P

  4. It would be amazing if [Title of Show] were actually one of the titles under consideration. :) But it isn't. Fortunately, we're moving closer to being able to announce those remaining two titles. Perhaps before the end of the year.
