TPAC celebrated its 40th Anniversary in 2020 during an extended shutdown in live programming due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Even at the height of the 19-month intermission, TPAC continued to serve tens of thousands of children, adults, artists, and educators with virtual programming and arts-based community outreach.
As a beacon of arts access in Nashville and Middle Tennessee and a cultural anchor institution in the community, TPAC made its triumphant return to live presentations in 2021 when it launched the 2021-22 Broadway season with “The Band’s Visit.” The return of touring Broadway to Nashville is a reminder that the organization continues to adapt and be resilient in the face of many challenges.
That resilience is supported by TPAC’s health and safety partnership with HCA Healthcare, one of the nation’s leading providers of healthcare services, and its Nashville-based TriStar Health affiliate. The partnership continues a decades-long relationship between TPAC and HCA Healthcare/TriStar Health, which has sponsored the annual Broadway at TPAC series for 15 years and made possible the presentation of more than 70 Broadway productions to over 1.5 million people.
