The Sound and the Fury
Obie Award winning ensemble ELEVATOR REPAIR SERVICE returns to The Public, home to its sold-out productions of Gatz (2010 and 2012) and Arguendo (2013), with their highly praised staging of WILLIAM FAULKNER’s modernist masterpiece, The Sound and the Fury. With a lush sound score, high-energy choreography and a profoundly versatile ensemble, ERS delivers a verbatim staging of the novel’s opening chapter (“the Benjy chapter”), Faulkner’s famous experiment with memory and language.
And only Nashville could give birth to a band like the SteelDrivers: a group of seasoned veterans - each distinguished in his or her own right, each valued in the town's commercial community - who are seizing an opportunity to follow their hearts to their souls' reward.
Zion80 explores Jewish music – from Shlomo Carlebach to John Zorn and everything in between – through the lens of the Afrobeat funk master Fela Anikulapo Kuti.

Academy Award nominee Sam Waterston (Newsroom, Law & Order, The Public’s King Lear) and Jesse Tyler Ferguson(Modern Family, The Comedy of Errors) return in THE TEMPEST, Shakespeare’s classic about young love, old enemies and the eternal magic of storytelling. Exiled to a fantastical island, Prospero unleashes a churning storm to shipwreck the traitor brother who stole his throne and settle the score once and for all. But bitter revenge is upended by newfound love in this sublime masterpiece that proves we are all "such stuff as dreams are made on." Tony Award nominee Michael Greif (Romeo and Juliet, Our Lady of Kibeho, If/Then, Next to Normal) directs.

Having never had a Bat Mitzvah, Confirmation, or even Sweet Sixteen, for that matter, Ali Grieb is no stranger to sin.
