"The only story I tried to write down is you." Seminal folk artist Woody Guthrie utters those words in "Woody Sez: The Life and Music of Woody Guthrie," the toe-tapping, heartstring-tugging bio-revue currently playing at Skokie's Northlight Theatre. Indeed, long before the Occupy Movement introduced the term "99-percenter," their existence was chronicled in his music. Coming as it does during the centennial of Guthrie's birth, "Woody Sez" is as entertaining as it is timely.
