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/
