“I hear America singing.” Based on Studs Terkel’s bestselling book, this unique, Tony-nominated musical has been recently updated for the modern age and features the real-life words of average working Americans, set to music by a diverse collection of extraordinary story-telling songwriters including Lin-Manuel Miranda (IN THE HEIGHTS, HAMILTON) and Stephen Schwartz (WICKED), as well as Craig Carnelia and James Taylor. WORKING is a brilliant, hilarious, and heartwarming examination of the “essential” worker.

“Entertaining, funny and touching…Working has been smartly updated, with wonderful new songs by Lin-Manuel Miranda, and new characters, based on new interviews, that reflect how dramatically the world of work has changed just in the past three decades.” –New York Theatre
