“Working”

Sept. 30-Oct. 29
Theatre on the Square

Dismissed in its original Broadway production as a “Chorus Line” wannabee, “Working”—adapted from Studs Terkel’s oral history of the working lives of everyday people—has proven itself in many regional theater productions. It’s rarely the same show twice, though. In this iteration, the music from the original (including songs by “Wicked” composer Stephen Schwartz, James Taylor and others) has been supplemented with two originals by Lin-Manuel Miranda, of “In the Heights” fame. And the show, once featuring a sprawling cast of 17, has been tightened for a company of six. Details here.
