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 Andy Christopher carries audiences from Hank's impoverished childhood in Alabama to his impromptu apprenticeship with African-American blues performer Rufus "Tee Tot" Payne to his rise to stardom at Nashville's Grand Ole Opry. But that stardom was tumultuous, and the play respectfully dives into Williams's struggles, 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 save audience members a trip to the jukebox.
The Who's Tommy
It's an unlikely premise: a childhood trauma renders a young boy unable to engage in the world around him, and yet somehow he becomes a pinball virtuoso. But Tommy's journey and legendary tunes that brought it to life have become a ballet, movie, and Broadway rock opera. The Who's epic tale and its transcendent score—including "The Acid Queen," "Tommy Can You Hear Me?," and "I'm Free"—have endured for decades.
