City as a Venue: 'Working: A Musical'
Based on Studs Terkel’s best-selling book of interviews with American workers, ’Working’ paints a vivid portrait of the men and women that the world so often takes for granted.
Based on Studs Terkel’s best-selling book of interviews with American workers, Working paints a vivid portrait of the men and women that the world so often takes for granted: the schoolteacher, the phone operator, the server, the millworker, the mason, and the stay-at-home parent, just to name a few.
Nominated for six Tony Awards, this classic has been updated for a modern age, featuring new songs by Tony Award-winning Lin-Manuel Miranda, as well as favorites by Stephen Schwartz, Craig Carnelia and James Taylor. This new version of Working is a musical exploration of twenty-six people from all walks of life. Its strength is in the core truths that transcend specific professions: how people’s relationships to their work ultimately reveal key aspects of their humanity, regardless of the trappings of the job itself.
“Reminds you of the serendipitous pleasures of hearing someone you’ve never met before describe what she or he does for a living. This is especially true when the speaker makes you appreciate the unacknowledged labor of keeping a place you hold dear alive and functional.” —NYT Theater
