From the book by Studs Terkel, Adapted by Stephen Schwartz and Nina Faso, with songs by Craig Carnelia, Micki Grant, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Mary Rodgers and Susan Birkhead, Stephen Schwartz, James Taylor Directed by Kathleen Collins; musical direction by Scott Warrender and Jeff Bell Performed by the Sophomore Ensemble
Based on Studs Terkel's best-selling book of interviews with American workers, Working paints a vivid portrait of the men and women 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. This new 2010 version of Working is a musical exploration of 26 people from all walks of life. The strength of the show is in the core truths that transcend specific professions; the key is how people's relationships to their work ultimately reveal key aspects of their humanity, regardless of the trappings of the job itself.
