After more than a year of canceled performances due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the curtain is finally rising again at Tennessee Performing Arts Center (TPAC)! TPAC announced today a return to live performances with an impressive new season of Broadway shows. The 2021-22 HCA Healthcare/TriStar Health Broadway at TPAC season will kick off on October 19 with the Nashville premiere of The Band’s Visit, the critically acclaimed hit musical that nabbed 10 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, in 2018.

May We All, the new country-inspired musical from Florida Georgia Line’s Bryan Kelley, will make its world debut at TPAC on June 7, 2022.
