Our TBA this season will be the regional premiere of the new bluegrass musical, Paradise. We're thrilled to play a part in the development of this wonderful show and look forward to introducing it to Austin audiences!

Coming off of a sold out run in Los Angeles, Paradise, a sinfully divine bluegrass comedy, brings its irreverent, heart-warming, toe-tapping show to Austin Playhouse before heading across the country. This "down-on-their-luck" Southern coal mining town gets a big dose of reality when a charismatic Preacher, saucy Stripper, and greedy Hollywood production company show up to try to create their own version of the American Dream. 

Paradise is rated PG-13 for some adult language, irreverent innuendos, and extreme sauciness.
