Woody Sez: The Life and Music of Woody Guthrie

Woody Guthrie, America’s original folk hero, transformed the folk ballad into a vehicle for social protest and observation. He paved the way for Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Jeff Tweedy and more. WOODY SEZ is a soul stirring musical event performed by four amazingly talented actor-musicians performing over 25 of his classic songs. Its a joyous, toe-tapping, and heartfelt musical portrait that uses Woody’s words and songs to transport the audience through his fascinating and sometimes tragic life.

“"Woody Guthrie would have been lucky to have them in the studio when he was recording. The rest of us are lucky to have them at TheaterWorks, blessedly unamplified and glorifying the music of an American original."” (-NY Times)
