TheaterWorks' 'Woody Sez' An Uplifting Musical Tribute

TheaterWorks' 'Woody Sez' An Uplifting Musical Tribute

The show: "Woody Sez: The Life and Music of Woody Guthrie" at Hartford's TheaterWorks.

What makes it special?: Presentation of musical that's been popular at stages across the country and London.

First impressions: To those who know Woody Guthrie as simply the guy who wrote "This Land Is Your Land" and the dad of Arlo Guthrie, this bio-tale is a revelation of the man's committed life and his breadth of music. To those who are familiar with the troubadour laureate, it's a fitting celebration of the power of song in not only lifting spirits, but as a tool for public awareness.
