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 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

This show was good. It could have been better though. The one glaring issue for me with this production was the son Andrew. I felt like his vocals were weak and his acting was poor. Marcus and the Father wiped the floor with him. It seemed like Andrew was just added to the cast a couple of days before the production because he had no chemistry with the other characters. I hope that this is the case because then the show has promise and I will gladly see it again.
Facing East, based on the play by Carol Lynn Pearson, is a stirring new musical following an upstanding Mormon couple trying to face the suicide of their gay son. When they meet their son’s partner, Marcus, they must face a reality long denied and resolve feelings of faith and family.
