Jason Petty began his acting and singing odyssey on the stage of the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee portraying country music legend, Hank Williams, in the musical, “Lost Highway”. After several national tours Petty went to New York for an off Broadway run of the show and won the OBIE Award for Outstanding Performance in 2003.
When Jason first performed the role of Hank Williams at the Ryman in Tennessee in 1996, little did he imagine that some 20 years later he would still be portraying this legendary man in his own highly acclaimed show. Petty met and became friends with Williams friends and family members, musicians, and fellow Grand Ole Opry stars. They shared with him the intimate details of this legend’s life and career. From the good times to the hard times, Jason listened and began to understand this man like no other. Now he brings that intimate story to life in this one man tribute.
The Leeds Theatre and Arts Center is located at 8140 Parkway Drive in Downtown Leeds. We are handicapped accessible so when you call for reservations please let us know if you are in a wheelchair.
Come and join us for an evening you will never forget!
