Project Description

Based on James Agee’s Pulitzer-Prize winning autobiographical novel “A Death in the Family,” this is a universal coming-of-age story about family, faith and love—and the boy who will grow up to write it.

With a sweeping musical score blending folk, bluegrass and ballads.  Knoxville is adapted and directed by 2-time Tony winner Frank Galati. Knoxville was in rehearsals for its world premiere at the Asolo Repertory Theater in Sarasota, FL but was forced to stop because of the pandemic. It will now come to the stage as part of their 2021-2022 season.
