News   "Brother, Can You Spare a Dime?" Opens at the Triad March 8 Bill Daugherty's latest revue, "Brother, Can You Spare a Dime?" Songs and Stories from The Great Depression, opens Off-Broadway at the Triad Theatre March 8.

Daugherty, who also created the Off-Broadway revue When the Lights Go On Again, conceived and directs his latest show, which began performances March 6 and continues through June 14.

The cast includes Daugherty as well as Christina Morrell, Alexander Elisa, Jennafer Newberry, Deborah Tranelli and Morgan West.

"Brother, Can You Spare a Dime?" "will take the audience on 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," according to production notes. "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 production features musical director Doyle Newmyer on piano with John Loehrke on bass and Spiff Wiegand on guitar.

Tickets, priced $45, are available by phoning (212) 352-3101. The Triad is located in Manhattan at 158 West 72nd Street.
