Knock the chill off with these winter performances

Ahead of a sold-out performance last year, the chair of East Tennessee State University’s Department of Theatre and Dance reflected on the impact the arts have on a community.
“The arts,” said Karen Brewster, “help us make sense of what is happening in the world.”
