Praise for HARD TRAVELIN' WITH WOODY
"By equating the conditions of Depression-era America with those of today, writer-performer Randy Noojin invests Hard Travelin' with Woody with topicality and urgency, rescuing it from mere homage and transforming it into a call for united action against greed and selfishness . . . blows the dust off Guthrie's standards . . . restoring their sting and deepening their soulfulness." - BACKSTAGE.COM
"A constant delight! This is a great show for Guthrie fans and for those hearing these songs and stories for the first time." - NYTHEATRE.COM
"Noojin captures the spirit of Woody, getting even an uptight New York crowd singing along . . . This is solid, entertaining work that should travel far and wide in these hard times, just like Guthrie himself." - THE HUFFINGTON POST
"What distinquishes Noojin's illuminating portait of Woody from all the others I've seen is that he has resolutely let Woody speak (and sing) for himself; this is Woody unfiltered in his own words, but assembled by a master craftsman." - FOLKWORKS
"Randy Noojin's Woody Guthrie is a revelation. He captures the spirit of the man like no others have done onstage. His Guthrie is not just some folksy cardboard caricature; we've seen enough of those. Noojin's Guthrie is ornery, pugnacious, sly, and driven by the twin forces of anger and love." - Will Kaufman, author of WOODY GUTHRIE, AMERICAN RADICAL
"Impressive, offers a vivid portrait of Woody's ideas and music." - Bob Sherman, Host of WOODY'S CHILDREN, WFUV-FM
