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

I'm not a huge fan of absurd theater. That said, I thought this was really well done. I have seen Rhinoceros before and read the script, and I got much more from this performance. It was also very funny, which I've never really gotten before. The company that puts this on is great, which is why I went to see the show. If you like absurd theater, you will love this show.

By Eugene Ionesco
Directed by Alex Gelman
“I am alone and they are all together.”
Rhinoceroses are loose in the streets. Berenger does not care. While the citizenry fails to make heads (horns) or tail out of an increasingly chaotic situation, our hero begins to realize that everybody around him is gradually changing into pachyderms. Considered by many to be Ionesco’s finest play, Rhinoceros tracks one man’s lonely efforts to hang onto his humanity, while everyone around him abandons theirs.
