FOREVER PLAID Resurrects the Magic of The Fifties

 

Begins June 11th at the Roxy Regional Theatre

Audiences will be humming along to some of the great nostalgic pop hits of the 1950s when the Roxy Regional Theatre opens the hit musical FOREVER PLAID on Friday, June 11th, at 8:00pm.

This deliciously goofy revue centers on four young, eager male singers — Gregory Pember as Frankie, John Moser as Smudge, Christopher Cavallo as Sparky and Ryan Bowie as Jinx — killed in a car crash in the 1950s on the way to their first big concert, and now miraculously revived for the posthumous chance to fulfill their dreams and perform the show that never was. «Read the rest of this article»

TDOT Flood Response

 

A monthly column by TDOT Commissioner Gerald Nicely

It’s a frightening sight most Tennesseans will never forget – a portable classroom swept away by floodwaters floating down Interstate 24 in Nashville, crashing into dozens of vehicles already stranded in several feet of water. As the rain continued to fall those first few days of May, each image broadcast on the local news seemed to be more devastating than the last. 

Disasters of this magnitude can easily overwhelm their victims. But once again, we have all seen the indomitable spirit of Tennesseans, and the sheer determination to survive and rebuild. We have all also seen numerous acts of kindness and generosity, not just with neighbors helping neighbors, but strangers coming to the aid of strangers.
