“Hank Williams Live – 1952” offers folks a chance to imagine how it might have been to listen to Hank sing and tell stories. For two hours we can go back to the Kawliga Café and the Hank that captivated audiences and set the standard for generations of country entertainers to come. This is not a true story, but the stories in it are true. And if it
ain’t exactly factual well, as Hank would say, “What Momma don’t know won’t hurt’er!”
Performed by actor Joe Matheson, dubbed ‘the quintessential voice of Hank Williams,’ who masterfully embodies one of the most important country music artists of all time. A veteran of the stage, having performed in the Canadian premieres of Tommy and Miss Saigon, plus a two-year run of
the hit musical Jersey Boys in Toronto, Matheson promises to give “…a most believable portrayal of the talented and tortured singer” (London Free Press).
