The Off-Broadway revue "Brother, Can You Spare A Dime?" Songs and Stories from The Great Depression begins performances at the Triad Theatre March 6.

Created and directed by Bill Daugherty (When the Lights Go On Again), "Brother, Can You Spare A Dime?" will officially open March 8 and run through June 14.

Daugherty leads a cast that includes 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.
