Hank Williams: Lost Highway Announces Final Weeks

News   Hank Williams: Lost Highway Announces Final Weeks The acclaimed Off-Broadway musical Hank Williams: Lost Highway will soon end its run at the Little Shubert Theatre.

Although the musical — which played a sold-out run at the Manhattan Ensemble Theater before transferring to the Little Shubert March 26 — has announced the final weeks of its run, a closing date has not been determined. A spokesperson for the production said that a tour is in the works, and the New York company recorded a cast album for the Fynsworth Alley label on June 16. Sources in the theatre community have said that the musical Fame — based on the film and the long-running TV series of the same name — will be the Little Shubert's next tenant. Based on the life of the late musician Hank Williams, Hank Williams: Lost Highway began its journey at the Mark Taper Forum. Directed by Randal Myler and co-written by Myler and Mark Harelik, the musical features 15 of Williams' classic songs, including "Your Cheatin' Heart," "Jambalaya (On the Bayou)" and "Hey, Good Lookin." Jason Petty heads the cast of the production, which received an Obie Award, two Lucille Lortel Award nominations, three Outer Critics Circle Award nominations, one Drama Desk nomination and a Drama League honor.

The Little Shubert Theatre is located at 422 West 42nd Street. Tickets are available by calling (212) 239-6200.
