The Life & Music of Woody Guthrie
Devised by David M. Lutken with Nick Corley and
Darcie Deaville, Helen J. Russell, and Andy Teirstein
Directed by Nick Corley
“Bound for Glory!” raved The Washington Post of this extraordinary musical event. Woody Guthrie is a musical hero of legendary proportion who transformed folk music into a vehicle for social protest and evoked the restless spirit of the Dust Bowl generation. Woody Sez brings the legend to life in this joyous and heartfelt theatrical event that uses Woody’s words and songs to transport the audience through his fascinating, beautiful, and sometimes tragic life. Featuring many classic Woody tunes including “This Land is Your Land” and “Union Maid,” Woody Sez captures the heart and spirit of Woody Guthrie and the stories of America.

Asolo Rep Celebrates Volunteer Appreciation Day
Every day is Volunteer Appreciation Day at Asolo Repertory Theatre, but specifically on Monday, June 8, our wonderful ushers and administrative volunteers were honored at a special event held at the theatre. The fun began at 4pm with a wine and cheese reception on the mezzanine where 130+ volunteers were recognized by Asolo Rep Marketing Director Judith Lambert and House Services Manager Jay Poindexter. At 5pm, volunteers were treated to a private showing of the classic film, “West Side Story,” to get everyone excited for next season. Words can’t express how much we appreciate the more than 600 volunteers who donate their time to Asolo Rep and make such a difference in our organization.
