This musical celebrates a giant of American music, Woody Guthrie, known since the 1930s and ‘40s as “America’s greatest folk poet”. His legendary songs still champion the best of the American spirit. Fuelled by a boundless curiosity about the world, the colorful life he led became as legendary as the songs he wrote.
is a joyous, toe-tapping, and moving musical event, transporting the audience through the fascinating, beautiful, and sometimes tragic story of Woody Guthrie’s life with over twenty-five of his most famous songs. The show is performed by a talented ensemble of award-winning actor/musicians who not only play over 20 instruments, but also bring to life the many people who are the fabric of Woody’s story. The combination of the cast’s infectious enjoyment, Woody’s incredible journey, and a stirring mix of moving ballads and energetic foot-stompers make this a must see.
This outstanding production was first introduced at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2007 and has since played in over fifty cities in the U.S., the UK, the Middle East, China and across Europe. www.woodysez.com
