Event Details

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 and with music by a host of composers including Lin-Manuel Miranda, James Taylor, Micki Grant and Stephen Schwartz, Working paints a vivid and diverse portrait that the world so often takes for granted: the schoolteacher, ironworker, 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.
