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 Hank 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

The Stuntmen united in 2009 for a single purpose – to never again perform in a “talking heads” comedy sketch. They were weary of seeing scenes in which two modern-day people sit and talk about events that occur off stage. The Stuntmen deliver an eclectic array of sketches inspired by the action film genre. And yes, the action occurs on stage. They’re physical, frenetic, and we’re not afraid to take a few bumps and bruises for the cause.
The Stuntmen’s shows are filled with car chases, ninjas, time bombs, time travel, bank heists, and unblockable kicks. Conspicuously absent? Scenes in which two generic friends talk about their day over a latte.
The Stuntmen bring over 30 years of combined comedic performance experience to deliver shows that demand the audience’s attention. Action movies are high stakes, over-the-top affairs with heroes and villains and conflict; add a humorous twist, and voila! The Stuntmen.
