Written by Woody Allen (Death Defying Acts, Writer’s Block) and based on the screenplay by Allen and Douglas McGrath for the 1994 film, BULLETS OVER BROADWAY tells the story of an aspiring young playwright newly arrived on Broadway in 1920s New York who is forced to cast a mobster's talentless girlfriend in his latest drama in order to get it produced.
“We’re so proud to have BULLETS OVER BROADWAY making its Nashville debut with us this season. This high-energy, quick-witted musical comedy is one of Woody Allen’s finest works, and it’s sure to be a crowd pleaser,” said Kathleen O’Brien, TPAC’s president and chief executive officer. “Whether you’ve memorized all the great moments from the film, or are drawn to spectacular choreography and big Broadway dance numbers, BULLETS delivers.”

Following his work on the Broadway production of BULLETS OVER BROADWAY, originally directed and choreographed by five-time Tony Award winner Susan Stroman, the tour is helmed by director Jeff Whiting. The creative team also includes Jason Ardizzone-West (scenic design), Carolyn Wong (lighting design, based on the original Broadway lighting design by Donald Holder), Shannon Slaton (sound design) and Bernie Ardia (wig and hair design).
