Additional Notes:
THE FOLK SINGER tells a story of a young musician who wants to write songs as relevant today as those of Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan and Joan Baez were in their heyday. Working with like-minded local musicians, he and the others compose new songs and stage a folk festival? for the 21st century, with the hope of reaching a wider audience through social media. “I wrote the book and lyrics to THE FOLK SINGER in order to create a character-based work for the theater that would comment on todays times,” explains Tom Attea. “I believe that?, given the severity of the problems in America and around the world, new folk songs would be expected to have a greater presence than they do. The centerpiece of the show, ?A Folk Festival for Today, ?provided ?the occasion ??to write lyrics with contemporary substance.” Set design is by Mark Marcante, with lighting design by Alexander Bartienieff, sound design by Alex Santullo,? and prop design is by Lytza Colon. Danielle Hauser is the assistant director.? The performance schedule for THE FOLK SINGER is as follows: Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 8pm with matinees on Sundays at 3pm.
