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

Tom Stoppard’s translation of Gérald Sibleyras’ play won the Olivier Award for Best New Comedy. It’s 1959 and Philippe, Gustave and Henri, three veterans from WWI keep each other company on the back terrace of a retired soldiers’ home. Through a series of witty scenes, the men goad one another into new adventures. The men’s cantankerous camaraderie becomes strained as they plot an expedition to Indochina, or at least as far as the poplar trees on the distant hill. Heroes is a funny and bittersweet play about memory and “not going gently into that good night.”
