Description

Running time is approximately one hour and 45 minutes with no intermission.

The show contains adult language and some descriptions of adult situations. It’s recommended for high school age and older.

From the everyday lives of “ordinary” working people comes a musical that’s anything but ordinary. Adapted by Stephen Schwartz (Pippin, Godspell, Wicked_) from Studs Terkel’s magnificent oral history, Working_ reveals the hopes, dreams, joys, and concerns of the average working American by following them through one 24-hour workday. Schwartz wrote the songs along with James Taylor, Lin-Manuel Miranda (In the Heights) and others, creating an inspired eclectic, tuneful, moving and uplifting score.
