Hootenanny: The Musicale
Hootenanny: The Musicale is a fun and foot stomping evening featuring David Lutken and the Seat of the Pants Band. Inspired by David’s storied music career and his own personal ancestry, Hootenanny features songs like “Shenandoah,” “St. Louis Blues,” “The Wabash Cannonball” and “The Times They Are a-Changin’.” Audiences are invited to be a part of four interconnected American musical journeys, filled with beauty, virtuosity, joy, tragedy and the rough-and-tumble history of this country’s unique family tree.
Originally from Dallas, Texas, David graduated from Duke University with a Bachelor of Arts in Classical Studies, and completed his acting degree at the Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Arts in London. He is pleased to be back at Milwaukee Rep, having played in the Stackner three times before in Mark Twain’s River of Song, Back Home Again and Woody Sez. Broadway: Inherit the Wind, Ring of Fire, The Civil War and The Will Rogers Follies. Off-Broadway: Woody Sez (Outer Critics’ Circle, Off-Broadway Alliance & Drama League Best Musical nominations), Southern Comfort, Stars in Your Eyes and Winter Man. London: Woody Sez (Evening Standard Best Musical nomination), Dark of the Moon, Bonnie and Clyde and A Month in the Country. With his original show, Woody Sez: The Life and Music of Woody Guthrie, he and his company have toured Europe, the British Isles, the Middle East and China.
