Woody Sez celebrates the spirit of American folk legend Woody Guthrie, whose music continues to inspire today’s finest storytelling songwriters including Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and Billy Bragg.
Part music, part words, Woody Sez weaves together Guthrie’s songs with excerpts from articles he wrote for the leftist newspaper The People’s World to create a portrait of a true American hero, a man who would ‘always be there whenever working folks fight for their rights‘.

‘They spread warmth out across the auditorium. Go bask in it.’ 4 stars
The Crucible is the main producing venue in the Sheffield Theatres complex. On occasion, the Crucible hosts touring work. The Crucible is also the home of the annual World Snooker Championship.
The performance area is a thrust stage which extends into the auditorium, enabling the audience to watch the action on three sides. No member of the audience is ever further than 22 metres from the stage, and the sightlines are excellent, offering equality of experience across the auditorium.
