Woody? You Betcha.
Just when you thought it was safe to go back to forgetting who the godfather of folk music is, Arizona Theater Company stages a musical that honors the mans legacy. Woody Guthrie's American Song charts both the folk singers life and Guthries deep fondness for his country while spinning a tale of America. The show has toured the country for more than a decade and was reviewed by the New York Times, which said the musical, told in story and in Guthries music, "manages to find both the high beauty and the earthy humor of Guthrie's love affair with America."
