“Ups A Daisy” In his book, “Working” Studs Terkel wrote “Work is about a search for daily meaning as well as daily bread, for recognition as well as cash, for astonishment rather than torpor; in short, for a sort of life rather than a Monday through Friday sort of dying.”
Terkel never saw “Ups A Daisy” starring Bill Mesnik, as a New York City Everyman just trying to get to work and make a difference. Mesnik’s tour de force is mesmerizing and hilarious. Also starring Sparrow, Lawrence Fishberg, Vanessa Schoeni, Emmet Haltigan, Ambrose, Louise Faviere, Tarek Eisa, Les Simon, Joe Albanese, Diana LaMar, Dina Dilllon, Jennifer, Roland, Tarek Elfar, Carlton J. Smith, Bonnie Dunn and Claire Tattersall. 24:30 1997 WINGFLIX Directed by Charles Krezell
