Theatre J presents Woody Sez: The Life & Music of Woody Guthrie, their Helen Hayes Award-winning celebration of American folk music legend Woody Guthrie. This internationally acclaimed production, a hit on London's West End and at the Edinburgh Festival, combines tunes like "This Land is Your Land" and "The Ballad of Tom Joad" with scenes from Guthrie's life and excerpts from his progressive newspaper column. The show does justice both to Guthrie's heroic political activism and to his irresistibly tuneful, joyful music. Learn More

Too much time was spent on the imagined fantasy appearances of Jerry Siegel's unacknowledged son and on the imagined role of Superman comics that the playwrite speculated could have occured in the Nazi concentration camps.
As an owner of an original Superman comic book and a fan of the Superman radio show with Bud Collyer in the late 30s, I wish the play would have included more about the radio program and the tv show and movie whose Superman actors were cursed with tragic demises.
Learning that the co-authors had signed away their Superman ownership reminded me of my own loss by the tossing by an older brother of my orignal Superman, Batman, Captain Marvel and other comic books.
This production contains brief, modest nudity.
June 21 will be open-captioning night.
