WEEHAWKEN – Hudson Theatre Works opens its 2018-2019 season on Saturday, Sept. 15 at 8 p.m. with a benefit performance of “Seeger - A Multimedia Show with the Music of Pete Seeger,” written and performed by Randy Noojin, at the company’s new space at 80 Hauxhurst St., in Weehawken.

“Seeger” is a critically-acclaimed multimedia solo show about American folksinger Pete Seeger. Spend an evening with “Pete” as he plays a benefit concert advocating the end of the U.S.-Cuban trade embargo, where he uses a dozen of his signature songs, including "If I Had a Hammer,” "Where Have All the Flowers Gone?,” "Turn! Turn! Turn!,” We Shall Overcome,” and "Guantanamera" to tell the story of his awakening as an activist, and his struggles with the blacklist during the McCarthy-era.

Randy Noojin onstage resurrects Pete Seeger as a folk singer, performs around a dozen Seeger classics, and performs a script that perfectly captures the spirit, personality, and passions of Pete Seeger.

“Noojin disappears into Seeger's persona and whisks us back and forward in time through the American 20th Century. Anybody who is a Seeger fan should make a bee-line for where this song-fest is humming.” (CurtainUp.com)

“Should not be missed by anyone who loves Seeger or good music or our right and duty as Americans to stand up for justice.” (TheatreLife.com)
