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
