Working, nominated for six Tony Awards, paints a vivid portrait of the people the world so often takes for granted – the essential workers. Working is a musical exploration of people from all walks of life; by exploring these ‘invisible’ professions we can transcend them to find some core truths about humanity through the way every person relates to their work.
Based on Studs Terkel’s best-selling book, Working was adapted by Nina Faso and Stephen Schwartz, with additional contributions by Gordon Greenberg and songs by Craig Carnelia, James Taylor, Mary Rodgers, Micki Grant, Stephen Schwartz, Susan Birkenhead, and Lin-Manuel Miranda.
The creative team for this production included Katherine Hammond (director), Brian Nedvin (music director), Ricardo Melendez (choreographer), Woody Robinson (set and light designer), Lee Smith (projection designer), Justin McLawhorn (sound designer), Meredith Magoun (costume designer) and Jim Lyden (technical director), with Chris Hanna producing.
Working (2012 Revised Version) is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. www.mtishows.com.
