Working: A Musical
Friday, March 6, 2015
Presented By: The Ohio State University Mansfield
A musical adapted by Stepen Schwartz and Nina Faso with additional contributions by Gordon Greenberg - songs by Craig Carnella and Micki Grant and Lin-Manuel Miranda and Mary Rodgers and Susan Birkenhead and Stephen Schwartz and James Taylor,
and based on the book by Studs Terkel
Both moving and funny, and full of exceptional music, this show allows real people to tell their own stories with heartfelt, gritty honesty. Working paints a vivid portrait of the men and women the world often takes for granted: the school teacher, the phone operator, the waitress, the millworker, the housewife. With stirring songs by Schwartz (Wicked and Pippin) and folk legend James Taylor, the show is great fun and also reveals how people's relationships to their work are a vital part of their humanity.
Working replaces originally scheduled Two by Two
Drawn from real interviews with workers, Working contains a few instances of strong language
