September 9 – October 2, 2016
Adapted by Nina Faso and Stephen Schwartz
Based on Studs Terkel’s 1978 best-selling book of interviews with American workers, Working paints a vivid portrait of the men and women the world so often takes for granted; from iron workers to flight attendants to waitresses and more. The humorous and heartwarming stories the workers tell are the core truths that transcend specific professions; the key is how people’s relationships to their work ultimately reveal key aspects of their humanity.
The updated 2012 version of the musical hosts new songs by TONY Award-winning Lin-Manuel Miranda (In the Heights, Hamilton), as well as favorites by Stephen Schwartz and James Taylor.
