About this show

Based on the best-selling Studs Terkel book of the same name, Working: A Musical evokes the unsung nobility of American workers. From the hardworking waitress to the worn-out millworker, this musical exalts the hopes, dignity, and sense of purpose shared by each one of us.

A living, breathing testament to the people who make this country run, the Off-Center production will incorporate stories from City Center's employees in celebration of the 75th anniversary season, acting as a time capsule for the landmark occasion. The score includes contributions from an illustrious and eclectic list of songwriters — Craig Carnelia, Micki Grant, Mary Rodgers and Susan Birkenhead, James Taylor, and Lin-Manuel Miranda, who composed two new songs added to recent productions.
