Mandrell Sells Theatre

Louise Mandrell is selling her namesake theatre in Pigeon Forge, Tenn., and moving back to Nashville to be with her husband who has been diagnosed with a rare neurological disorder.

Mandrell, 50, performed at the 1,400-seat venue for eight years.

The operators of The Comedy Barn and Black Bear Jamboree theatres nearby have agreed to buy the Louise Mandrell Theater, but haven’t decided what type of entertainment will be offered there.
