Marcy Gallagher and her husband owned Kilwin’s Fudge and Ice Cream in downtown Asheville for 13 years before handing the store off during the pandemic. Then Gallagher did something a little crazy: She wrote a piece of musical theater from scratch. She found a composer, a director and a cast, then booked a theater. “At the Cafe” premieres inside the McGuire Theater at the Wortham Center Aug. 18-27.
We’ll talk about Gallagher’s commitment, investment and bringing her vision to reality. We’ll also get into the story she wants to tell about middle-aged women and what success means for her as a late-stage creative.
