Torn from the lives of real people, Working is a musical that is both smart and fun, with songs from Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin), James Taylor, Lin-Manuel Miranda (In the Heights) and others. Based on Studs Terkel's best-selling book of interviews, Working looks at the lives of several very different American workers during one 24-hour workday. As they express their insecurities, dreams, joys and concerns, Working celebrates the spirit of what makes America great. It is both uplifting and moving -- and has a lot of terrific music as well.

It was amusing, but not that intelligent. We brought our 3 teenagers and while they enjoy some level of crude humor, the explicit puppet sex got a bit excessive. I still recommend this for adults, but leave the teens at home and you'll enjoy it more.

Part flesh (humans), part felt (puppets), and packed with heart (universal), Avenue Q is a laugh-out-loud musical that tells the timeless story of a recent college grad named Princeton who moves into a shabby New York apartment all the way out on Avenue Q. There, he meets the girl next door, a Republican, an internet sexpert, and Gary Coleman (need we say more?), along with other colorful types who help Princeton finally discover his purpose in life. Warning: contains adult language and puppet nudity. Not for the kiddies, but your teenagers will think you’re cool if you take them!
Winner of the Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book.
This show contains strong language, adult themes and partial puppet nudity.
