Woody Sez is an "unmissable musical treat"

A new show at the Arts Theatre has been given a four-star review by a London theatre breaks expert.

Peter Brown, writing for, said that Woody Sez, which tells the story of the life and music of Woodrow Wilson Guthrie, is an "unmissable musical treat".

It uses a team of four "extremely talented musicians" to play a variety of instruments, including the guitar, violin, double bass and whistle.

He added that David Lutken guides the audience through Guthrie's life in a warm, unpretentious and affable style, which gives the play a homely feel.

"The format works well because the narrative never gets bogged-down in long-winded verbal descriptions or detours – the dialogue having been pruned to a minimum and presented in small, highly digestible and focused chunks that are quickly followed by songs," Mr Brown stated.

Woody Guthrie is one of US folk's best known artists, having produced a string of hits, including This Land is Your Land.
