We just saw “Working-the Musical”, an adaptation of Studs Terkel’s book called Working. It was very professionally and delightfully performed as well as being very affordable. Kudos to the entire cast and staff!

The theater itself is rather old, but it is now attached to a brand new building on campus at Mars Hill University. Theater is not terribly professional, but they are trying to upgrade.
