A charming salute to Woody Guthrie

Woodrow Wilson Guthrie, that troubador of hard times and sad circumstances, was born 100 years ago in Okemah, Okla. Marking the occasion of his centenary is not only a handsome boxed set of Guthrie songs, “Woody at 100” from Smithsonian Folkways (read our story on it here), but the return of Strawberry Theatre Workshop‘s “This Land/Woody Guthrie.” First staged in 2004, the production now running in Seattle is “less a biography of Guthrie (though this revision adds insight into his struggles and beliefs by including more of his poems and incidental writings) than a valuable celebration of his music, and his genuine (if somewhat romanticized) mission as a champion of rough-hewed, impoverished, dislocated and decent folk — like those young Woody was raised with in Oklahoma,” writes Seattle Times theater critic Misha Berson. Read the whole review here.
