Set in a fictional Indiana town during the Great Depression, Jim Leonard Jr.'s moving drama focuses on the friendship between an ex-preacher from Kentucky and a disturbed young boy. The boy -- deeply traumatized by a near-drowning in his past that led to the death of his mother -- is now terrified of water, but also gifted with the ability to divine its location. As the bond between these two grows, the preacher works with the boy to overcome his crippling fear of water. And when the townspeople, desperate for a spiritual leader, mistake an eventual bathing for a baptism, their confusion leads to some significant consequences in The Diviners. Learn More

The show was absolutely wonderful. So many talented musicians and actors. Whether you like country music or not, this was a well produced, written and performed show that people will enjoy. If the newspaper critics do not agree we all would be shocked!
Quotes & Highlights
“Strikingly honest and guileless picture that could well mean commercial legs and a big fat hit for American Blues. Brumlow nails Williams, sweet, low, and hard.” —Chicago Tribune
“A bona fide tribute concert. Director Damon Kiely has a dynamite cast and pulls pitch perfect performances from all of them. Captivatingly produced …clever dialogue … impressively talented actor/musicians. —Newcity
“Glorious contradiction: a musical bio bursting at the seams with rambunctious playfulness and Williams’ life-long, fruitless quest for contentment. It’s a demanding, bravura performance and Brumlow nails it from lights up to curtain call.” —Chicago Theater Beat
“They crank up the foot-tapping fun. Hank’s story will have you musing and humming all the way home.” —Chicago Now
“The music is well-played giving Williams’ songbook an authentic sound … a worthy tribute to the country legend.” —Chicago Critic http://chicagocritic.com/hank-williams-lost-highway-american-blues-theater/
