Raising Hell in Heaven

Listening to Mother Jones talk about her life in an Irish pub may seem like the meatier part of Heaven, but she would likely agree it is far superior to standing in a cold creek listening to her ask what you want to do with your own. To further the point, Vivian Nesbitt brings her one-woman musical Mother Jones in Heaven about the “grandmother of all agitators” to Albuquerque for a one-night only performance on Thursday, Oct. 24 at 7pm at the Rio Grande Center for Spiritual Living (4374 Alexander Blvd. NE). Swearing delivered in an Irish accent by a grandmotherly type will quickly orientate theatergoers to the depths of the struggles this icon of the American Labor Movement endured with songs to match.
