Legendary folk hero Woody Guthrie defined an American era of social consciousness and political expressions with songs like “This Land is Your Land.” He gave voice to a restless and profoundly American search for freedom. Woody comes to life in this joyous, toe-tapping musical portrait that captures the heart and spirit of America’s great folk troubadour.

Featuring four amazingly talented actor-musicians, Sam Sherwood (Woody Guthrie), David Finch, Nyssa Grant, and Helen J. Russell, performing over 25 of his classic songs – discover why Woody’s considered the “patron saint of American rebelliousness” and how he paved the way for musicians like Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Jeff Tweedy, and more.

The additional creative team for WOODY SEZ includes Luke Cantarella (set design), Jeffrey Meek (costume design), Seth Reiser (lighting design), and Tom Kosis (stage manager).
