Samm-Art Williams’ hit comedic play “The Dance on Widow’s Row” opens 8/13 (Nashville)

Samm-Art Williams’ hit comedic play “The Dance on Widow’s Row” returns to Nashville after a successful and critically-acclaimed run at TN State University several years ago. The play depicts four wealthy widows in Nashville who invite the area's four most eligible bachelors to an intimate soiree for eight. Having already buried nine husbands altogether, they know that neighbors' tongues will wag like the tail of a starving dog with the key to the butcher shop; but they are willing to defy town mores and endure vicious gossip if there is a chance that they will meet “Mr. Right” tonight. "The Dance on Widow’s Row” is a light comedy about death, dating and superstition - - or, more specifically, about how hard it can be for a woman to get a date after she's buried a few husbands.

“The Dance on Widow’s Row” is under the direction of Barry Scott, who is widely known for his successes as an actor, writer, producer, director, motivational speaker and voice over artist.

“The results at TN State a couple of years ago were powerfully encouraging," Scott says. "I am excited to bring this show back in an indefinite run to Writer’s Stage and to give Nashville something that it doesn’t get enough of: an extended run of a top- notch comedic theatrical production depicting African-Americans."

The cast features Diane Dixon, Stella Reed, Tamiko Robinson, Darlene Knight, Barry Scott, Kenneth Dozier, and Eric Williams.

The performances will be held at the Writer’s Stage located at 1008 Charlotte Avenue. Performances will be held every Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening at 7:30pm. The play is unique in that it is being offered to Nashville as an open run with no definite end date.

Tickets are $15.00 and can be purchased at the door or online at ; For Group Reservations, please call 615-476-6430.
