Hard Travelin' with Woody

Dates: 
Sunday, December 14, 2014 - 4:00pm

A multimedia one-man show with the music and artworks of Woody Guthrie written and performed by Randy Noojin.

Hop a box car through the Dustbowl with Woody Guthrie and commune with the spirit, stories and songs of America's iconic folksinger, saint-of-the-workingman and poet-of-the-people as he plays for a union meeting of striking mine workers on the verge of yielding to vigilante violence.

The critics agree:
"Captures the spirit of Woody, solid, entertaining work that should travel far and wide in these hard times, just like Guthrie himself." - THE HUFFINGTON POST

"A constant delight." - NYTHEATRE.COM

"Blows the dust off Guthrie's standards, rescuing it from mere homage, transforming it into a call for united action against greed." - BACKSTAGE.COM
