The show did go on for Sally Struthers.

Even a run-in with the law didn't stop the former All in the Family actress, 65 – who was pulled over for driving under the influence in Ogunquit, Maine, early Wednesday morning – from performing two shows of musical adaptation of Dolly Parton's 9 to 5 on Thursday.

According to the Portland Press Herald, Cheryl Farley, the Ogunquit Playhouse's director of marketing, says Struthers has not missed a performance during the musical's run, and is "terrific" on stage. Farley would not to comment on the legal incident.

"Sally is working and she is fine and she loves the Ogunquit Playhouse and her yearly time in Ogunquit," the actress's rep Pam Sharp said in a statement shortly after the arrest.

Struthers, who was released from jail on a $160 cash bail, plays Roz in the musical, which runs through Sept. 15.

"She's very talented," Alice Gaudette who has seen Struthers perform many times over the last decade, tells the Herald. "[The arrest] doesn't change my opinion. I feel sorry for her, if anything."

The star, who did not speak to media after Thursday's performances, is set to appear in court on Dec. 15.
