"thumbs-up is symbolic of the recent praise that youth advocates Justin McNeil and John Muller of the DreamCity Theatre Group have been receiving for writing and presenting a play called "The 70," which premieres at Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library on July 25. With the main character being a bus driver named "Mr. Wonderful," the play is about "the community that exists on the city bus system and the different struggles and successes that riders encounter in their daily lives," according to its producers."
