Told through 24 songs and actual first-hand accounts, the new musical revue "Brother, Can You Spare A Dime?ï¿½ Songs and Stories from The Great Depression will open at the Triad Theatre on 8 Mar 2009, following previews from 7 6 Mar, where it will run through to 14 Jun 2009.
Conceived and staged by Bill Daugherty, this musical time capsule is produced by Thoroughbred Records and Max Weintraub.
"Brother, Can You Spare A Dime?ï¿½ Songs and Stories from The Great Depression: A heartfelt journey from pre-crash mania through to the plight of the Dustbowl 'Okies,' the folks who rode the rails in search of work, letters to Mrs. Roosevelt and then the eventual recovery of our nation. A timely subject, the revue paints the emotions of a country in economic turmoil and how the music of Hollywood and Tin Pan Alley reflected the commonality of Americans and asked us to look toward better times.
The cast for "Brother, Can You Spare A Dime?ï¿½ Songs and Stories from The Great Depression features Bill Daugherty, Alexander Elisa, Christina Morrell, Jennafer Newberry, Deborah Tranelli and Morgan West.
