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 waitress, the millworker, the mason and the housewife, 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.
The Umbrella’s Take: When putting together the season, we knew that we needed to find time to celebrate the things which make us all simultaneously different and yet the same. WORKING, which has been updated in recent years, continues to tell the universal truths of American life through what Americans do for a living. With music by several contributors and a timeless story, WORKING remains one of the most accessible and relevant musicals around.
