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.
