What do you think of when you think of Nashville? If your first answer wasn't "theater," then you're missing out on one of the lesser-talked-about gems of Music City. There's a vast and vibrant theater life bubbling below the glitz and glamour of music and boot-scootin-boogies. Lane Wright is the perfect person to introduce you to the life behind the Nashville curtain.
A native of the city (a pretty rare feat in itself!) and a lifelong lover of theater, Lane makes for an excellent tour guide through the vast history of the craft in Nashville. Both an actor and director, Lane has a real passion for supporting the arts and keeping them alive. For those who may not know what it takes to call yourself a professional actor, Lane sheds light on the struggles and triumphs that come with the life.
Lane and I sat down in his dining room where he was kind of enough to answer all of my questions with an enthusiastic smile. This is a guy who loves what he does and loves to share that passion with others.
