Hank Williams: Lost Highway

Hank Williams lived to be only 29 years old, but those years were packed with more life than most. In Hank Williams: Lost Highway, actor Matt Brumlow carries audiences from Hank's impoverished childhood in Alabama to his impromptu apprenticeship with African-American blues performer Rufus "Tee-Tot" Payne and his rise to stardom at Nashville's Grand Ole Opry. But that stardom was tumultuous. The play respectfully dives into Williams' difficult relationship with his wife, Audrey, and the spiraling addiction to alcohol and painkillers that led to his demise, earning praise from the New York Times for honoring "a very particular musical genre and musical talent with care and energy." Throughout the live biography, the show weaves in more than 20 timeless songs such as "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry," "Move It on Over," and "Hey Good Lookin'," which not only nod to Williams's talent, but succeed in humanizing him.

Brumlow brings unique experience to the role. The actor first played Hank in 2011, starring in the Milwaukee Repertory's one-man show, Nobody Lonesome for Me. He eschews conventional method tactics to get in character, refusing to imitate Williams's specific mannerisms or wear his old pajamas. Instead, he visited Montgomery's Williams museum for inspiration, where, as he explains in the play guide, curators told him to "listen to his music because what was inside comes out. So, I listened to Hank, a lot.”

American Blues Theater

Stories of bygone royal families and dispossessed tycoons have no place at American Blues Theater. Rather, the ensemble showcases the American ideas of freedom, equality, and opportunity by telling home-grown stories while pairing production missions with different service agencies. Since its founding in 1985, the company has presented such sepia-hued favorites as On the Waterfront and Oklahoma, all focused on depicting working-class concerns. Their approach has struck a chord in the community—the theater’s members have been honored with numerous Joseph Jefferson Awards, Writers’ Guild Awards, and hearty handshakes.
