Studs Terkel gets an update at the Lyric Stage.
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
From the everyday lives of "ordinary" working people comes a musical that is anything BUT ordinary! Adapted by Stephen Schwartz (Pippin, Godspell, Wicked) from Studs Terkel's magnificent oral history, Working reveals the hopes, dreams, joys, and concerns of the average working American by following them through one 24-hour workday. Schwartz wrote the songs along with James Taylor, Lin-Manuel Miranda, (In the Heights) and others, creating an inspired eclectic, tuneful, moving, and uplifting score.
