Gordon Greenberg directs a re-imagined production of the musical Working, with Stephen Schwartz, Lin-Manuel Miranda contributing new material to the show.
Working already features the work of musical high-achievers such as Stephen Schwartz, James Taylor, Micki Grant, Craig Carnelia, and Mary Rodgers.
Do you love your job? Or can you not wait to punch out at the end of the day? Are you ecstatic to go to work every morning? Or do you prefer the ease of retirement? Working explores the gamut of people's emotions about their jobs. This well-loved musical based on the writings of Studs Terkel remains a witty and timely commentary on how work defines the worker's self-worth and cultural legacy. This inventive re-imagining of a powerful and emotional audience favorite features characters from all walks of life ranging from trucker to housewife, waitress to corporate executive, fireman to schoolteacher, and more. With such a wide cross-section of characters, you'll surely feel that at least one of them is singing your song.
