News Depression-Era Revue "Brother, Can You Spare A Dime?" to Play the Triad
Bill Daugherty and Christina Morrell are among the cast of the Off-Broadway revue "Brother, Can You Spare A Dime?" Songs and Stories from The Great Depression, which is set to begin performances March 6.

Daugherty, who also created the Off-Broadway musical When the Lights Go On Again, also conceived and directs the revue. "Brother, Can You Spare A Dime?" will officially open March 8 and run through June 14 at the Triad Theatre.

"Brother, Can You Spare A Dime?” according to press notes, "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. 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."

In addition to Daugherty and Morrell (When the Lights Go On Again, Back Home), the revue will also feature Alexander Elisa, Jennafer Newberry, Deborah Tranelli and Morgan West.

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.
