WORKING is a vital new musical based on the book by Pulitzer Prize-winning author and Chicago's own Studs Terkel. Adapted by Stephen Schwartz (WICKED, PIPPIN and GODSPELL) from the original adaptation by Stephen Schwartz and Nina Faso, WORKING is the working man's A CHORUS LINE. A musical exploration of 26 people from all walks of life, with songs by all-star composers Craig Carnelia, Micki Grant, Tony Award™ winning Lin-Manuel Miranda, Mary Rodgers, Susan Birkenhead, Stephen Schwartz and Grammy Award™ winning James Taylor. WORKING celebrates everyday people in a genuinely funny and touching way, portrayed by some of Chicago's brightest stars including E. Faye Butler, Rebecca Finnegan, Gene Weygandt, Emjoy Gavino, Michael Mahler and Gabriel Ruiz. WORKING fills you with hope and inspiration and is the perfect musical for everyone who has ever worked a day in their lives.
