The Tennessee Performing Arts Center will be presenting a theater adaptation of Woody Allen’s “Bullets Over Broadway” from Tuesday through Nov. 15.
Written by Woody Allen, with original direction and choreography by Susan Stroman and based upon the screenplay of the acclaimed film by Woody Allen and Douglas McGrath, the story is about a playwright who, struggling to make ends meet for his next show, is persuaded by a mobster to accept an offer that will allow him to put on his play.
Emma Stratton, playing the leading female role of Helen Sinclair in the production, said she enjoyed preparing for the show and participating in the story it tells.
“Preparing for Bullets Over Broadway was a very fun endeavor, getting a feel for a world created by Woody Allen. I wanted to pay homage to Woody’s world but also bring all the goofy, neurotic things about myself to the role as well,” she said.
The TPAC is bound to bring their audience laughs, cries and head-bobbing, Roaring 20s jazz.
Tickets are on sale for $20 to $65, depending on seating and availability.
“Bullets Over Broadway is different from what you’ve seen before because of its scale, its style, its spectacle, and its range of comedy,” Stratton said. “The dancing is phenomenal, the music is tremendous and familiar and the story is outrageous fun. It is also a show that theater folks will have a deeper understanding and appreciation for.”
