Working: A Musical

Working: A Musical

With book by Stephen Schwartz (Pippin, Wicked) and Nina Faso, and music by Schwartz, Craig Carnelia, Micki Grant, Mary Rodgers, James Taylor, and Lin-Manuel Miranda (Hamilton), the musical is adapted from the Studs Terkel’s Working: People Talk about What they Do All Day and How They Feel about What They Do.

The hopes, dreams, joys and concerns of the average working American are the focus of this unique, extraordinary musical. That the everyday lives of common men and women should be so compelling and moving will surprise and inspire anyone who has ever punched a time clock.

“Based on Studs Terkel's best-selling book of interviews with American workers, Working paints a vivid portrait of the men and women that the world so often takes for granted: the schoolteacher, the parking lot attendant, the waitress, the millworker, the mason, the trucker, the fireman and the housewife, just to name a few. It's a highly original look at the American landscape that is simply impossible to forget. “—MTI Shows.

For teenage and older audiences.
