WORKING: The Musical

Adapted by Stephen Schwartz and Nina Faso, from the book by Studs Terkel.

E.M. Pearson Theatre
Thursday – Saturday, October 22, 23, 24, 2015, 7:30 p.m.
Sunday, October 25, 2014, 2 p.m.

Based on Studs Terkel’s best-selling book of interviews with American workers, Working is a musical exploration of the hopes, dreams, joys and concerns of the average working person. These are men and women the world so often takes for granted: the schoolteacher, the waitress, the millworker, the mason, the fireman, the housewife, to name a few.

Nominated for six Tony Awards, this musical classic has been updated for the modern age, but it remains a highly original look at the American landscape in which the everyday lives of “common” men and women transcend the trappings of their jobs and reveal their humanity in a most striking and compelling way.
