Northlight is proud to honor this American legend during his Centennial year.

Artistic Director BJ Jones comments, "In 1991, our audience enjoyed Woody Guthrie's American Song which won the Jeff Award for best musical. Now to celebrate his 100th birthday, we bring this fresh take on Woody Guthrie to the Northlight stage. Created by and starring world class artist David Lutkin and directed by Broadway's Nick Corley, Woody Sez is a celebration of the musicality and social conscience of one of America's greatest troubadours. It resurrects Woody's spirit of hope and fierce American determination."

The cast includes Darcie Deaville, David Finch, David M. Lutkin, and Helen Jean Russell.
