Raw, honest, and powerful yet bursting with humor and heart
Come hear America singing! Based on Studs Terkel’s best-selling book, Working is a profound and extraordinary collection of stories about the ordinary hopes and dreams of the American worker. For anyone who has ever punched a timeclock, Working paints a vivid portrait of the men and women so often taken for granted: the schoolteacher, the waitress, the millworker, the mason, and the housewife, just to name a few. With music by a slate of some of Broadway’s best composers including Stephen Schwartz, Craig Carnelia, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and James Taylor, Working is a highly original look at how the work we do gives meaning to our lives.
