A Tennessee fiction based on Anthon Chekov’s The Seagull, Songbird is about a fading country star returning home to Nashville. After many years away, Tammy returns to the honky tonk that launched her music career to help the son she abandoned launch his own. But with jealousy and self-destruction (along with copious amounts of whiskey) fueling this homecoming, will Tammy’s arrival do more harm than good? Songbird features a sultry soundtrack with heartbreaking ballads and soaring anthems that pay homage to music and lyricist Lauren Pritchard’s Nashville roots. Written by Michael Kimmel, directed by JV Merchant, and starring Tony nominees Kate Baldwin (Big Fish, Finian’s Rainbow) and Erin Dilly (Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, A Christmas Story).
