Show Info

Written by Michael Kimmel
Music & lyrics by Lauren Pritchard
Directed by JV Mercanti

Featuring Ephie Aardema, Kate Baldwin, Adam Cochran, Erin Dilly, Don Guillory, Drew McVety, Eric William Morris, Kacie Sheik, Bob Stillman, and Andy Taylor


After many years away, Tammy, a fading country music star, returns to the Honky Tonk that launched her music career to help her estranged son launch his own. But with jealousy, self destruction and copious amounts of whiskey fueling this homecoming, will Tammy's arrival do more harm than good?

Powerhouse songwriter Lauren Pritchard's heartbreaking ballads and driving anthems marry with Michael Kimmel's ingenious Nashville take on Chekhov's The Seagull to bring you a truly magical musical experience.

Less Than Rent Theatre

LTR creates dynamic and dangerous theatre where the energy is explosive and the volume is turned all the way up. Whether it's with a new work from a fresh voice, a remix of a classic, or a devised piece by our ensemble, our goal is to perpetually skew the theatrical canon, exploring universal themes and familiar ideas in a way that's jolting and in-your face. We're a big company that makes big plays, driven by our signature combination of passion, curiousity, and swagger.
