This musical adaptation of the Studs Terkel book examines the average worker's viewpoint...showing that he or she is anything but average. Based on a series of interviews with real working people - construction workers, waitresses, firemen, secretaries and cleaning women - "Working" is both an exploration of the individuals' occupations, and a lament for lost hopes and dreams. This musical adaptation was conceived by Stephen Schwartz ("Godspell" and "Pippin") and Nina Faso. A must for all musical theatre buffs.
