WORKING explores the American workday, from the Monday morning blues to the second shift blahs, using the original words of some uncommon common men and women. Twenty-six workers, including a parking lot attendant, corporate executive, newsboy, schoolteacher, gas man, housewife, fireman, waitress, millworker, sailor, etc., sing and talk about their jobs, defining not only their daily round, but their hopes and aspirations as well.
Conceived by Stephen Schwartz (of Wicked, Godspell and Pippin fame) from the book by Studs Terkel, the show celebrates the human essence of aspiration and inspiration, with wonderful songs by several gifted songwriters including James Taylor.
