SALT LAKE CITY — A father thought he sat at the side of the road, arms flung wide around the trunk of a large oak tree. In reality he was on a hypnotist’s stage and under the hypnotist’s control—and control was something the Father had been lacking since his daughter had been accidentally hit by a car. Recognizing that his inability to deal with the loss was now affecting his relationship with his wife and younger daughter, he had come to the hypnotist for help.

CEDAR CITY — At only twenty-nine years old singer-songwriter Hank Williams died in a way sadly too familiar to the entertainment industry, an example of the dangerous combination of pain and success. Hank Williams: Lost Highway by Randal Myler and Mark Harelik features “The music and legend of Hank Williams” portrayed as a series of vignettes highlighting pivotal moments in his life and career and the observations of those closest to him. By his side in both life and on stage, Hank’s band members Hoss, Leon and Jimmy lend this production the legendary music that formed the bridge between the...Read More
