While in Knoxville enjoying its natural beauty, take time to visit Clarence Brown Theatre. "The Miracle Worker" runs through Sunday, October 19. You will leave inspired...a wonderful production!

I went to see Hank Williams the Lost Highway at the Carousel Theater. It exceeded my expectations. The cast was so talented. I wanted to clap my hands and sing along.

I have been attending UT Theatre for 40 years. I have had great experiences and the Hank Williams show was an example of how wonderful regional theatre can be. I grew up in NYC and attended many Broadway productions. This production was as good as anything I have seen on Broadway. Bravo, UT.

Another amazing performance! The cast is great from Hank's mother and his wife to his band/friends. The young man who portrays Hank does a superlative job and sound a lot like Hank and even looks like the former singer! It was a great intimate setting at the Carousel Theatre.

I went to a the production last evening and I must say Clarence Brown theatre did it again. The cast was very talented and kept the entire audience mesmerized. I have had season tickets for years and I look forward to every performance. Last night I was in the Carousal Theatre for the Hank Williams production. The acoustics were perfect,... More

Thoroughly enjoyed this first play of the new season at CBT. The Carousel Theater is perfect for this kind of performance; intimate, up-close, for a couple of hours you just feel like you are right there with Hank Williams himself.

Decided to check out the "Hank Williams Lost Highway" production which kicked off the 40th anniversary of the Clarence Brown Theater on the University of Tennessee campus. Was surprised to see that it was being staged in the adjacent Caurosel Theater which proved to me much more fun since it is smaller and less formal. The show was outstanding. Great... More

This was the best play I have seen since I moved here from Boston. Witty, wonderfully written, musically delightful, and also touching. I felt like it really was Hank up there singing his heart out. His wife did a superb acting job, as did his mother, and also Horace Smith gave an outstanding performance. I'm going back! I could see... More

This is an excellent play. It had the audience tapping their feet. Great fun! This is the opener for the 40th season of the Clarence Brown Theater and they have once again chosen a great play for this occasion.
