This week’s Playbill features all new performances, from a thought-provoking musical on America’s workforce, to pop-up ballet performances.
This Saturday only, Twin City Stage presents its youth production of Are You My Mother? at the Arts Council Theatre. The musical is an adaptation of the childhood classic featuring a baby bird that hatches while its mother is away.
Open Space Café Theatre is back this week with a production of Working, A Musical, which is based on Studs Terkel’s best-selling book of interviews with American workers. The production, which runs Friday through Sunday, and then again next weekend, features teachers, phone operators, waitresses, millworkers and more. Performances are at the Carolina Theatre.
