The Civil War Musical at the Roxy Theater—What a Bargain!

 

Clarksville, TN – Attending the Civil War Musical at Clarksville’s Roxy Theater is the biggest bargain in entertainment in Middle Tennessee! Where else can you see a professionally staged and professionally performed musical for a mere twenty dollars?

“The Civil War: A Sesquicentennial Event” is from a book by Frank Wildhorn, Gregory Boyd and Jack Murphy with music by Frank Wildhorn, and lyrics by Frank Wildhorn, Gregory Boyd and Jack Murphy.

What this musical accomplishes is the revelation that both Union and Confederate soldiers–many of whom literally were brothers–had identical desires and feelings going into war. Each is certain that his cause is just and worth fighting for. Slaves are portrayed suffering intense emotions as husband and wife are separated by forces outside themselves.

The Sounds of Ain’t Misbehavin’ has the Roxy Regional Theatre jumpin’ and jivin’

 

Roxy Regional TheatreThe Roxy Regional Theatre’s revival of the Tony award winning musical Ain’t Misbehavin’ is an explosive romp that takes the audience on a jaunt through the roaring 1920’s, and leading into the great depression. The show is intended as a tribute to African American musicians and follows the birth of an entirely new genre of jazz music known as swing.

Swing can trace its roots to the Harlem renaissance which brought African American Culture to the attention of white society in swanky New York night clubs where musicians like Count Basie, Cab Calloway, Fletcher Henderson, Fats Waller, Duke Ellington, Jelly Roll Morton, and Willie “The Lion” Smith entertained the elites of New York’s high society.

The show features the music of Jazz Pianist and songwriter Fats Waller, played flawlessly by Tom Thayer.
