Rolling Stone magazine’s new Fall Country Preview is an eclectic mix of upcoming albums, concert tours and unlikely collaborations.
And then there’s “Moonshine: That Hee Haw Musical.”
Inspired by the classic country variety series, the buzzed-about stage adaptation is the brainchild of two of Nashville’s impressive (not to mention irreverent) songwriters in Brandy Clark (2015 Best New Artist Grammy nominee) and Shane McAnally (Academy of Country Music, Songwriter of the Year 2014).
The musical follows small-town girl Misty Mae as she departs Kornfield Kounty for the big city in search of success and romance. Making it even more tantalizing? Former “American Idol” runner-up Justin Guarini is one of the stars.
“Moonshine: That Hee Haw Musical” is set to open Sept. 18 at the Dallas Theater Center in Dallas, Texas. Currently in previews, the production runs through Oct. 11.
For tickets, go to Dallas Theater Center.
