November 1 – 20, 2016 From the book by Studs Terkel • Adapted by Stephen Schwartz and Nina Faso • With additional contributions by Gordon Greenberg • Songs by Craig Carnelia, Micki Grant, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Mary Rodgers and Susan Birkenhead, Stephen Schwartz, and James Taylor
Nominated for six Tony Awards, including Best Score, Working features songs by Lin-Manuel Miranda (Hamilton), Stephen Schwartz (Pippin, Wicked), and James Taylor. Based on Studs Terkel’s best-selling book, Working celebrates our search for meaning and satisfaction in the daily grind. This down-to-earth yet elevating musical is woven from funny and poignant interviews of twenty-six real American workers. You’ll meet a schoolteacher, millworker, waitress, mason, and stay-at-home mom (to name just a few), who share not only their daily routines, but their hopes and aspirations as well.
