My View: Celebrate July 4th at Mr. Finn’s Cabaret With David Lutken


David Lutken brought his friends to William Finn’s Cabaret at Barrington Stage Co. and they are giving the BSC audience a treasure trove of American Folk Music for July 3rd & 4th.

David Lutken has been a performer in music and theatre for 30 years. As a player of traditional American instruments, folk music comprises a very large part of his repertoire. Born and raised in Dallas, David received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Classical Studies from Duke University. He studied in London at the Royal School of Church Music, the Royal College of Music, and has a graduate degree in acting from the Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Arts. He has appeared at Carnegie Hall, with the New York City Opera, the Baton Rouge Symphony Orchestra, and at many international venues. David began his professional connection with Woody Guthrie and Publications in 1988, which led to his creating folk music and American history lessons for school children and young adults. His Broadway credits include Inherit the Wind, starringChristopher Plummer, Ring of Fire: The Johnny CashMusical, The Civil War and The Will Rogers Follies. David has performed at Riverside in Midnight Clear and in various Actor Cabarets with his Seat of the Pants Band.

David’s friends for this engagement at Mr. Finn’s Cabaret were Ken Breard, Jane Gillman, Helen J. Russell, Antoine Siverman and Andy Teirstein. Mr. Finn’s Cabaret is located in the Sydelle and Lee Blatt Performing Arts Center below the St. Germain Stage.
