The Peoples' Voice Cafe is located on the lower level of Community Church of New York. Hop a boxcar through the Dustbowl with Woody Guthrie and commune for an hour with the spirit, stories and songs of America's great poet-of-the-people and saint-of-the-working man in Randy Noojin's one man hit from FringeNYC, HARD TRAVELIN' WITH WOODY. "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 - a seething anger at the political and economic injustice he sees all around him and a bottomless love for his country and its people."- Will Kaufman, author of WOODY GUTHRIE, AMERICAN RADICAL "Noojin delivers one of the delights of the fest with aplomb, 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."
