Hank Williams:Lost Highway was a surprisingly good production. The music and staging were great, and the audience was very receptive, including a standing ovation at the close. It was a very satisfying evening of theater.

Hank Williams: Lost Highway is a spectacular musical biography of the rise and fall of the brash, forever young, always legendary singer-songwriter who stands among the greatest innovators of American popular music.
