Tad Wilson and Jessica Phillips, Tennessee natives who will soon appear together on Broadway in Priscilla Queen of the Desert, will perform the music of their home state in South of Broadway, Feb. 13 at 9:30 PM at the Triad Theatre.



As a country act, they are known as 10th & Carlisle. Directed by Billy Porter (currently in Off-Broadway's Angels in America) and musical-directed by Mary-Mitchell Campbell (The Addams Family, Company), "Phillips and Wilson depict a perfect musical marriage of North and South, giving storytelling and passion a new voice in Crossover Country with a night of original tunes and the songs of some of today's hottest country artists."

Phillips has appeared on Broadway in Next to Normal, Jesus Christ Superstar and The Scarlet Pimpernel, and in the national tour of The Who's Tommy. She appeared in Joseph…Dreamcoat at Tennessee Rep.

Wilson's credits include Rock of Ages, Wonderland, Les Miserables, The Full Monty and The Civil War.
