So I finally coughed up the courage to go see the September 26 preview of The Busy World is Hushed, directed by Cheryl L. Kaplan and I must say that I was quite impressed.

When I walked into the Main Street Theater (which was almost filled completely with senior citizens), I instantly found myself in doubt of the production. It was a small, opulent, simple arena theater, the space was awfully limited and I was worried that the actors wouldn’t have much space for any drastic movement.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
