With the recent success of Sneaky Ole Time based on the work of songwriter Paul Overstreet, and similar tributes to Joni Mitchell and Randy Newman, why not a musical revue based on the life and songs of the late Roger Miller? The iconic singer, songwriter, actor and composer’s journey-story arrives on stage in King of the Road: The Roger Miller Story at the Laguna Playhouse. King celebrates the singular voice of the famed Nashville sound hit-maker who also created the score for a serious musical based on Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, in addition to his famous anthems of easy American fatalism via a darkly innocent fantasy of long-vanished hobo freedom, where a man of no means could pretend, almost joyfully, that he was somehow the king of the road.
