Lost Highway

Alert to Hank Williams fans: A few weeks ago I wrote up Jason Petty’s stage

show, which brings Hank to life wonderfully.

However, I said the show was closing in a few days, which it did. I am gald

to report that this was temporary. The show–it’s called “Hank Williams:

Lost Highway”–is now at the Little Shubert Theater on W. 42nd St. in New

York. If you love Hank’s music, you have to see Petty. And hear him–he

has the voice down exactly. No, I’m not related to Petty, and have no

interest (in the 18th-century usage) in the show–it’s just a lovely show if

you like Hank Williams.
