Working

Working
This examination of people from all walks of life proves that it's more than just a job for the average working American.

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, Working paints a vivid portrait of the men and women the world so often takes for granted: the schoolteacher, the parking lot attendant, the waitress, the millworker, the mason, the trucker, the fireman, the housewife, just to name a few. It s a highly original look at the American landscape that's simply impossible to forget.

With an extremely modest set and orchestra requirements, universal subject matter, and featuring a multi-ethnic ensemble cast of variable size, Working is one of the most accessible, relevant and substantive musicals ever created. The new, revised version includes updated lyrics, a streamlined book and two new songs by Stephen Schwartz and James Taylor.
