‘Woody Sez’ at Seattle Rep provides an historical glimmer of hope and excellent entertainment

www.axs.com: In these seemingly dark political times, Seattle Repertory Theatre has chosen to bring the touring musical Woody Sez, The Life and Music of Woody Guthrie to Seattle. Granted, this production was scheduled well before our current political tumult, but the show does serve to remind us that America has gone through some tough times before and that the people that survived those times generally emerged stronger for the experience.

I grew up with folk and protest music being the child of hippies so its nice to see the life of such a prolific musician and activist celebrated in such a beautiful way. It also nice to look back at people who have lived through personal and political hardship because they can help guide us through our own struggles. as we know history repeats itself. These stories keep us going and fighting as both activists and citizens. i hope this show can help people through these hard times.
