What You'll Get

The Deal


Working is what happens when the lyrics and music of Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin) meet the writing of Studs Terkel and the real-life words of American workers. Based on Terkel’s 1974 book of the same name—Working: People Talk About What They Do All Day and How They Feel About What They Do—the musical follows characters toiling away at a kaleidoscopic array of 40 jobs. A millworker shares the stage with a flight attendant, an advertising executive, a gas-meter reader, a teacher, and an escort—all played by fewer than 20 actors. As they tell their stories and examine ambition, work-life balance, dress codes that ban bell bottoms, and other issues that are as relevant today as they were during the play’s 1977 Tony-nominated premiere, these characters use songs, stories, and dance. And Schwartz’s isn’t the only music in the score. Audiences will also hear collaborations by James Taylor, Mary Rodgers, and others in this production, which is helmed by director Nova Cunningham.
