The songs of the legendary Hank Williams will fill the Silver Spur Theater at 8 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 19, and at 2 p.m., Sunday, Feb 20 as Sonnen Productions brings its adaptation of “Hank Williams: Lost Highway” to Salado. Tucker Peterson’s voice, picking, with local artists and actors, tell troubled story
“The musical features a cast of talented musicians and actors, but largely rests on the shoulders of country artist Tucker Peterson’s distinctive voice and old-style guitar-picking. He weaves a wandering path through the troubled life of Hank Williams and songs that have captivated a century of artists since,” said Grainger Esch, Co-founder and Executive Director of the Silver Spur Theater. “Casting soulful shadows on this path – like the influence Rufus ‘Tee-Tot’ Payne had on Hank’s music – is the versatile, songbird voice of Paul Puckett, who portrays the mentor-friend.” Esch said.
The play, written by Randal Myler and Mark Harelik, enjoyed a successful Off-Broadway run in 2003, garnering rave reviews. New York Post critic Donald Lyons declared it “the best example of a musician's bio put on stage” that he had ever seen.
“Lost Highway” treats mature audiences to an evening of the music they grew up loving and gives all ages a chance to witness the highs and lows of one of country music’s most storied singer/songwriters.
