What You'll Get
A good impersonation can be indistinguishable from the real thing, which is why Method actors are no longer allowed to play dictators. Take in a safer form of imitation with this deal to see This Land Is Your Land: The Legacy Of Woody Guthrie at Akron Civic Theatre. For $12, you get one ticket for cabaret seating on the stage on Friday, April 19, at 8 p.m. (a $25 value). Doors open at 7:30 p.m.
Many of the modern era’s most prolific songwriters, including American icons the likes of Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen, can trace the DNA of their styles back to Woody Guthrie. With a heart open to the working class and a guitar famously inscribed with the message “This machine kills fascists,” Guthrie has remained a staple of Americana with his immortal folk song “This Land Is Your Land,” which immediately evokes the American theme of freedom. In this tradition, Ryan Humbert and his acoustic band pay homage to Guthrie by covering cuts from the singer’s catalog, as well as performing Guthrie’s unpublished lyrics set to music by well-known artists such as Wilco, Billy Bragg, and Jackson Browne.

About Akron Civic Theatre
The medieval carvings, European antiques, and Italian alabaster sculptures at the Akron Civic Theatre absorb the ascending harmonies of symphony concerts and heavy rock ‘n’ roll alike. Built in 1929 to resemble a Moorish castle, the venue has maintained much of its historic charm, including the exceedingly rare atmospheric ceiling, in which stars twinkle and clouds float by as mesmerizingly as the last few corn flakes atop a bowl of milk.
