Summary

Stephen Schwartz, the man behind the curtain of the global sensation Wicked, has re-imagined his musical vision of the American dream for the 21st Century. A musical with songs by Schwartz, folk-rock legend James Taylor, and new songs by Broadway's hottest young musical sensation Lin-Manuel Miranda (2008 Tony Winner for In The Heights), WORKING is an unforgettable musical that creates a vivid tapestry of how we work in America — woven from the funny and poignant stories of twenty-six everyday Americans — a fireman, a housewife, a publicist, a business executive, a stone mason, and more. Based on the best-selling book by Pulitzer Prize winner Studs Terkel, WORKING will put a song in your heart as you get up in the morning to make it through another workday. Contains Strong Language.
