“Beethoven and Misfortune Cookies” by playwright Joni Ravenna is a one-man show about Kabin Thomas, a University of Arkansas music professor who was fired in 2006 for using profanity in the classroom. The play is in Wharton Center’s Pasant Theatre Thursday for a single performance.

Current State's  Melissa Benmark spoke with actor Ernest Harden, Jr. and director T.J. Castronovo about the production.

They say professor Thomas was deeply moved by the play based on his story.
