Nashville's Upcoming Performing Arts Events

Performance Theater Events in Nashville

Just off Broadway means something different in Nashville! Of course everyone knows that Broadway and 2nd Ave are where all of the downtown honky-tonks are located...and our Theater district is a little more spread out. There are some larger theaters downtown where you can see Tony and Grammy Award winning shows straight from NY's Broadway. Nashville is also blessed to have a number of small theaters where you can see local performers with amazing talents.
