Woody Guthrie's American Song

When: Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. and Sundays, 2 p.m. Continues through Nov. 18 2012

How better to celebrate the life of Woody Guthrie than through his own music? UC Berkeley Theater Department chair Peter Glazer first premiered Woody Guthrie's American Song, his acclaimed musical telling Guthrie's life story, in 1989 -- but the show returns to Cal (Durham Studio Theater, Dwinelle Hall), for a two-week run beginning on Friday, Nov. 9 . Featuring the music and writings of the Oklahoma-born folk hero, the story follows Guthrie on his two-decade journey through America, witnessing the Great Depression, the Dust Bowl, and World War II. Through November 18.Thu.-Sat. 8 p.m., Sun. 2 p.m.; $15 general admission, $10 for UCB students. 510-642-8827 or
