WOODY SEZ: The Life & Music of WOODY GUTHRIE
November 8 – December 2 * including weekday matinees and a Kids Show!
ASL Interpreted Performance, Nov 27
- DC Theatre Scene
"Bound for Glory!" - Washington Post
Celebrate the 100th birthday of Woody Guthrie, the creator of American classics like “This Land is Your Land” and “The Ballad of Tom Joad!” This boisterous retelling of the life of America’s troubadour blends musical numbers, scenes from Guthrie’s life and excerpts from his progressive newspaper column. The infectious and moving piece brings to life a true American hero, who proudly declared he would “always be there whenever working folks fight for their rights.”
This internationally-acclaimed production, courtesy of Mary Cossette Production, played London's West End last season to great acclaim after receiving raves at the Edinburgh Festival.
