Hank Williams: Lost Highway made such a splash last year at Greenhouse Theater Center that American Blues Theater's reviving it for 2014. Blues and Southern rock collide in this song-filled smash that follows legendary country singer-songwriter Hank Williams on his lonesome journey from backwoods Alabama to superstardom at the Grand Ole Opry. This unforgettable show, which was an off-Broadway hit nominated for three Outer Critics Circle Awards, features over 20 Hank Williams hits including "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry," "Move It on Over," "Jambalaya" and "Hey, Good Lookin'." Charting the rise and fall of the country music icon through song, Hank Williams: Lost Highway highlights Williams' undeniable musical talent and songwriting abilities, and explores the alcohol and drug problems that ultimately got the better of him. This remount of the popular production features a talented cast of performers who have performed on Broadway and beyond. Learn More

Truly mesmerizing! My companions and I were impressed by the caliber of the production, The Christmas Carol. We laughed out loud, tapped our toes to the music, and were drawn in by Scrooge's emotions. This was the first time attending a production at the Victory Garden Theatre, and we left the theatre making plans to attend again.

For those who think Charles Dickens wrote_ A Christmas Carol _to create a sentimental-Hallmark-greeting-card experience, think again! When Provision Theater’s Artistic Director Tim Gregory and multiple-Jeff-Award-winning director/writer David Bell actually read A Christmas Carol they realized that they, too, had been led astray over the years by the over-simplification and over-commercialization of this great work. At its core, Dickens’ classic is a story of deep human transformation—and the great hope that such transformation is possible, even for the Scrooge-iest of us. This Jefferson Award Nominated adaptation, written by Gregory and Bell, is one of the truest to the original theme you’ll ever see.
Brad Armancost returns this year as the miserly Scrooge, reviving his Jeff-nominated performance as Best Actor, along with a stellar cast of actors, singers and dancers to bring you this moving version of a must-see Christmas classic.
