Everyone knows about the daytime lure of Nashville — downtown shops along nearly every street and abundant examples of nature throughout Brown County.

But after a full day of traipsing through this visitor magnet, why not make an evening of it, too.

There’s still time to plan a day-night excursion with some plays opening in September. Here’s two to consider.

BROWN COUNTY PLAYHOUSE, 70 Van Buren St., Nashville: “Moonlight and Magnolias,” comedy play about the writers of the movie “Gone With the Wind” based on a legendary Hollywood incident. Sept. 7-9, 14-16, and 21-23. Show starts at 7:30 p.m. Information and tickets: 812-988-6555 and info@browncountyplayhouse.org.
