"I Saw the Light - 'Hank Williams: Lost Highway' Opens
Douglas Morrison Theatre presents a new production of Hank Williams: Lost Highway, the popular biomusical based on the life and music of Hank Williams, by Randal Myler & Mark Herelik, directed by Ben Randle, with musical direction by Olive Mitra.
Lost Highway plays through April 26th at DMT in Hayward, CA.
"What makes Lost Highway so unique, though, is that it is more than simply a musical revue," says Randle in Lost Highway's program Director's Note. "By turns a musical celebration, a radio play and musical biography, a poetic dramatization of his life’s influences and failings, Lost Highway searches for the elusive man behind the American myth. And in doing so, uncovers a lot about both the man and the country."
Lost Highway stars Kevin Singer (Assasins at Shotgun Players; Sweeney Todd, Yeast Nation at Ray of Light Theatre) as Hank Williams and Sarah Coykendall (Bread & Circuses, Troilus and Cressida at Impact Theatre) as his wife, Audrey. The cast also features Sarah Mitchell, Tom Reardon, Dwight Mahabir, Rebecca Faiola, as well as Kyle O'Brien on fiddle and mandolin, James Touzel on bass, Dylan Collins on electric guitar, and Paul Chianese on lap steel and steel guitar.
The Lost Highway creative team features Scenic Design by Liliana Duque Pineiro, Costume Design by Valera Coble, Lighting Design by Allen Willner, Sound Design by Lawton Lovely.
