Theater Review: “Perfect Arrangement”

L to R: Joshua Jones, John DeCarlo

The Big War is over, it’s 1950 and guess what? The problems that were solved have led to others, scarier and more difficult to solve.

Well, that’s what we thought then, anyway.

The defeat of fascism gave way to a horror of Communism; then the likes of J. Edgar Hoover at the FBI convinced President Truman that we also needed to root out “drunkards, loose women and deviants.”

Theater Review: “Woody Guthrie’s American Song”

Karen Ann Daniels, Sean Yael-Cox

You have to love a guy whose guitar sports this message: “This machine kills fascists.”

That would be Woody Guthrie, composer of more than 3,000 songs, many of which have entered the “standards” lists. Chief among them is “This Land Is Your Land.” Guthrie  wrote about lots of thing, but he is probably best known as a singer of protest and/or peace songs.
