THE FOLK SINGER is a new musical about contemporary times. It 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 stage a folk festival‚Äč for the 21st century, highlighting contemporary issues and reaching out to the audiences through social media for more awareness.

Created by the team behind the critically acclaimed 2015 production of Heather Smiley for President, the musical has a book and lyrics by Tom Attea, with music composed by Arthur Abrams. The production is directed by Mark Marcante.

THE FOLK SINGER begins previews on September 29th, opens on October 9th and will play a limited engagement through October 23rd. Tickets are $15 ($10 for seniors and students.) Box office: 212.254.1109, SmartTix: 212.868.4444 or purchase online at www.smarttix.com.
